Corey Taylor of the metal band Slipknot may have tweeted the new Slipknot U.S Tour, but Shaun Crahen (Clown) of Slipknot has 100% confirmed the new tour! As soon as this new tour was announced, so was the hopes of a New Album.

Shaun Crahan (Clown) posted on his Facebook:

"I wanted to tell everyone straight from my mouth because you may have heard it already anyway, but SLIPKNOT will be touring by next June in America only, but that does not mean things will not change, and as they do, I will, along with others, tell you, our family, first. No album yet because it is too soon and there are no songs yet because the band needs to come together to write this next one. I cannot wait to feel the ideas like choking on color. Everything happens for a reason, so be ready."

Apparently their recent tour in Europe went pretty well. As of right now, their bassist Donnie Steel is currently their touring bassist, but is backstage and not featured on-stage.

According to Joey Jordison (Drummer), there are over 17 songs written! So who is telling the truth here? Let's see how this works out.
