Much speculation and rumor have been surrounding Slipknot since the death of bass player Paul Grey whether Slipknot would continue. Good news is that they are going to continue as they co-headlining the latest Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival this year. Many fans were wondering if a new album would ever turn out....and there is.

According to DJ Sid Wilson, Slipknot will being recording the new album starting in 2013.

From Loudwire:

“We’ve got Mayhem Festival this summer and, after we break for winter and Stone Sour are done with their tour, we’ll be back in the kitchen with Slipknot. Actually, before Stone Sour finish touring we’ll be in the studio preparing for Corey’s return, keeping the irons hot.”

“It’ll be tough, it won’t be easy. Slipknot’s the biggest thing in all of our lives, but we’re always going to come back to it. We’re going to get it done. I’m excited and I’m ready to do it … I’m sick of hearing people talk, it’s time for action. When we come together, it’s badass; we need to harness that energy of the live shows. When we come together like we always do, it’s going to be brutal.”

They want the album to sound more like "Iowa," which I though was their best album!

Hopefully this is truth!
