The momentum has been steadily building towards a new Slipknot album, and now we have a release date: August 9th. The Iowa metal band also announced Knotfest Roadshow North America 2019 with Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth.

In the months leading up to the announcement frontman Corey Taylor has called the new album dark and vicious. It will be Slipknot’s sixth studio LP and first since 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter. We were, though, treated to the surprise release of the new song “All Out Life” in October.

While that song may be quite heavy, it will probably seem like a power ballad compared to how Taylor has been describing what Slipknot is working on right now. In the meantime, check out the complete list of tour dates. Tickets go on-sale this Friday, March 8th. Each pair bought online comes with a digital copy of the new album.
