Slipknot has posted another eerie teaser for its new album at the band's official website, following the arrival of a brief and supremely creepy video clip just last week. According to Loudwire, the site now has two bars underneath a revolving star-shaped symbol on the site's front page. Click on one of the bars and spin the star and you get a look at an extended version of the teaser that went online last week.
- A new post at the band's Facebook page features one shot -- of two staring, horrified eyes -- along with the caption "The Prescient/The Nascent/The Quotient.”
- What does it all mean? The band is not saying yet, but the imagery and audio points the way for a very dark new Slipknot record.
- Singer Corey Taylor recently said that the new Slipknot album is "98 percent done" and that "there will be big announcements soon."
- The band's first all-new album since 2008's All Hope Is Gone will be its first since the 2010 death of bassist Paul Gray and the late 2013 dismissal of drummer Joey Jordison, both founding members and primary songwriters in the group.
- Slipknot has also announced that the second edition of its Knotfest event will take place on October 24th, 25th and 26th in San Bernardino, California. More than two dozen other acts will join the headliners, including Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Of Mice And Men, In This Moment, Hellyeah, Atreyu and many others.
