After months of website and social media silence, Slipknot has posted an update. Head on over to Slipknot1.com where, if you’re patient, you’ll be shown some creepy images and treated to some very brief musical blips. There are also a couple of pics posted to their Facebook and Twitter pages of a woman doing lord knows what … all of this is a big tease for fans who have been patiently awaiting a new album.
There was an actual teaser video posted to the band’s YouTube, but even that was taken down shortly thereafter. A fan capture the clip, but that too was taken down shortly after being posted. The band hasn’t updated fans on when exactly a new album will be out, but these teasers seem to hint that it could be very soon. We’ll keep you posted.
New Hellyeah vid
There’s a new video for the Hellyeah tune “Moth”. The song is from the band’s latest album Sangre Por Sangre and shows some woman pinning a moth to a board, plus some kinda gross larva crawling around. It progresses from there. Watch it today!
Ever wondered if there was something more to the delay in getting a new Tool album? Your suspicions are spot on. In a recent interview, guitarist Adam Jones said that it’s time fans understand what’s going on. Jones revealed that in 2007, one of his associates accused the band of using artwork without giving due credit. Things were made even more difficult when an insurance company the band hired turned around and sued the band. The back and forth litigation has kept the band at bay and there could be some action early next year. Jones tells Rolling Stone that the legal wrangling drains the creative energy, but they’re fighting the good fight. As for new Tool, drummer Danny Carey says one song they have nearly complete is over 10 minutes long and more metal than typical songs. Good luck in the lawsuits, gentlemen, and get us new music when you can!
