Rolling Stone has revealed what appears to be the cover art for SLIPKNOT's new single, "Psychosocial", which will be delivered to radio on June 30 and will be available digitally on July 1. Check it out below.
According to Kerrang.com, SLIPKNOT will release a brand new track, "All Hope Is Gone", as a free download single tomorrow (Friday, June 20). The title cut of the band's new album will be available for free from the Roadrunner Records web site for a period of 24 hours beginning at midnight EST, then will be available as a download single from digital retailers like iTunes and Napster on June 23.
SLIPKNOT's new album, "All Hope Is Gone", will be released on August 26 via Roadrunner Records. The CD was recorded this spring in SLIPKNOT's home state of Iowa and was co-produced by the band and Dave Fortman (EVANESCENCE, MUDVAYNE).
"All Hope is Gone" is more of a statement than a record. Singer Corey Taylor commented, "Every album we have made is a statement about that space in time. I think this era is the most mature, most beautiful and the most powerful. We have made an album that will show the road behind, the road ahead, and where we are as men. I think it's the best thing I've ever made. And I challenge anyone to prove me wrong."
New images on SLIPKNOT's official web site have hinted at a change in the masks and costumes that are a trademark of the Iowa-based nine-piece. Taylor described the new outfits as "evolved," adding that they are "very dark and will fit in everything image-wise that we're making with this album."
The Rockstar Energy trek, which SLIPKNOT is co-headlining with DISTURBED, kicks off on July 9 in Seattle.
