Slipknot confirm new album release date

Rock News 06/03/2019

Good news Slipknot fans - the band have confirmed the release date for their new album in a tweet, alongside the announcement of their Knotfest Roadshow Summer 2019 tour.

The album - untitled at the moment - will be available Friday 9 August (probably Saturday 10, NZ time).

The band are giving away free digital copies of the album with every pair of purchased tickets for the tour.

Fans can expect to hear a heavier, darker album, with frontman Corey Taylor telling Des Moines Register via Loudwire that the new album is "evil" and will be a "pretty dark ride".

How does that sound for ya?
