After revealing the video for the first Slipknot song in six years, the band’s website now says there will be a special announcement at their online August 12th. What will that be? One can only assume it’s to announce the first new album in six years. Maybe an extensive US tour is also in the works! Head on over to Slipknot1.com today to watch the video until your hearts content today. Caution, it’s not for the faint of heart—nor is it for anyone with sensibilities towards goats or clean women. The band, which apparently is not just without late bassist Paul Gray but also drummer Joey Jordison, also made the song available for purchase and download through iTunes.

Kid Rock Dong Update
Remember that story about the glass phallus Kid Rock got as a gift being called up in a sexual harassment lawsuit involving members of ICP’s crew? You may need a flow chart to fully understand what’s going on … or you just need to read Kid Rock’s letters to those involved. Rock, who hails from Detroit—ICP’s hometown—is said to have received the glass … uh, rod … from a guy who tried giving it to a chick within Psychopathic Records. She decline and the … uh, toy ended up in Rock’s hands. Rock sent out letters saying he has no idea such glass piece exists and certainly doesn’t have it. The letters are use very choice words to blast the involved parties for dragging Rock’s name into their drama. In one letter Rock says if he wanted this type of drama he’d move to LA.
