More Slipknot news - they have confirmed their new album release date in a tweet with the announcement of their Knotfest Roadshow Summer 2019 tour with Volbeat, Behemoth and Gojira. The album will be available Aug. 9, though the title has not yet been revealed. A digital copy of the album will come with every pair of purchased tickets for the tour, which go on sale Mar. 8.

Corey Taylor told the Des Moines Register about a month ago that the new album is "evil" and will be a "pretty dark ride," after commenting that "All Out Life" is not "nearly as dark and vicious as the rest of the stuff." Heaviest tour of the year, heaviest album of the year?
