SLIPKNOT‘s new album will be released “very soon,” according to Corey Taylor.
The band’s frontman offered an update on the upcoming follow-up to 2019’s “We Are Not Your Kind” during SLIPKNOT‘s concert Wednesday night (June 1) at Heritage Bank Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Taylor then proceeded to introduce the song “The Chapeltown Rag”, which was released as a single last November. The track, as well as the rest of the new SLIPKNOT album, was produced by Joe Barresi, who has previously worked with AVENGED SEVENFOLD, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and CHEVELLE, among many others.
The “Knotfest Roadshow” tour is taking place over two legs, both headlined by SLIPKNOT. The first leg featured special guests IN THIS MOMENT and WAGE WAR. The second leg features special guests CYPRESS HILL and HO99O9. The first leg of the 38-date run, produced by Live Nation, wrapped up in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on April 17. The second leg kicked off on May 18 in University Park, Pennsylvania and will conclude on Sunday, June 18 in Chula Vista, California.
“We Are Not Your Kind” was released in August 2019. The LP sold 118,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in its first week of release to land at position No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
