It’s official, Slipknot is back and ready to take the world by storm. They released the first single off their upcoming album, which is due sometime in the near future. This is the follow up to their 2009 record “All Hope Is Gone”, and is the first album since bassist Paul Gray’s passing. This is also the very first album that will not feature Joey Jordison since his departure earlier this year. Judging by the single, they are going back to their roots and bringing back the sound they had in the early 2000s. This is going to be a big album for the band and will show if they can bring back the Slipknot we know and love.
