But Shawn Crashan has hinted at when the album is coming...

Following the release of their surprise new single on Halloween, Slipknot have had the world on the edge of our seat for details on the album to follow.

But alas, it's been revealed in an interview with Billboard by Shawn "Clown" Crahan that the album isn't actually finished yet.

He revealed that while it's been a work in progress since 2016, they still haven't finished it but have "a plethora of songs, all demoed" to choose from.

He continued to share "What I can tell you is I've known all the words all the time, so I've been able to paint the dream world and the nightmare in my mind." Conceptually, he added the album "breaks down to... good vs. evil, or in this sense, evil vs. good. It's about being a human being and experiencing what you have in correlating it to this world. This world is ugly and it's supposed to be, and it has to be in order for art to lead to grandness and beauty."

But what about when we'll get to hear this upcoming album? He's not ready to reveal all the details yet, but he does point to the band's upcoming tour dates "Nothing is in stone. There are songs that are considered the album, but everything can change. We would never go do (concert) dates without an album, but... we're not following any rules this time, not that we ever did. We're on an outline, and I think everybody's going to be pleasantly surprised."

So with their first live shows coming up June 07, it looks like a new Slipknot album is on a relatively close horizon. 

In the mean time though, keep jamming 'All Out Life':
