Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler‘s ambiguous answer to rumors of his involvement in the new Slipknot album certainly didn’t help curb the speculation. Chris Adler has now since offered the following statement that is far more definitive: 

“I’ve received even more questions about my involvement with Slipknot since the ABC interview I did recently. The interview was originally about my new whiskey bar, but of course took a turn into the gossip of the day. As I told her, I’ve had and have nothing to do with it. I’m flattered with the association and comparisons, but I have no involvement in their record."

A fan’s theory that Slipknot had enlisted Lamb Of God‘s Chris Adler to handle the drumming on their new album gained traction around the net this week. This was based solely on the perceived similarities in playing styles that were featured on the bands new track, “The Negative One“.

Abcnewsradioonline.com have since put the question to Adler himself, who offered:

"Right now I think silence is golden. Right now I don’t think those guys need me, or need me talking about it. You know, I listened to it and I thought it sounded a little bit like me, too. At the moment, I just don’t recall doing it. I’m getting texts and emails and phone calls about it. for the moment, I don’t know anything about it.”

Slipknot have yet to announce an official replacement for ousted drummer Joey Jordison. Current plans have them releasing their new album in October with a new single from it titled “The Devil In I” to emerge in the coming weeks.

On SLIPKNOT's touring plans:

Starting in October, there'll be a couple of months of touring, mainly in the U.S. and shooting over to do those two Knotfests in Japan. And then break, obviously, for the holidays. And then next year, we're gonna start slowly moving out to the rest of the world, basically. I know we're eyeing Europe and the U.K., we're definitely looking at Australia, we're looking at South America, Canada… It's basically just the blueprint for the world, basically… There's Southeast Asia…. I mean, there's so much that we wanna do. Once we get that hammered out, we'll immediately get it up and we'll make sure that everybody knows about it."

On a possible release date for the new SLIPKNOT album:

"I'm not sure what the definite date is. I know we're shooting for October. Because we wanna release it right around the time the Knotfest shows happen, so everyone can have it. We've got pretty much all the artwork done, which Shawn did a hell of a job on. We're getting ready… probably in the next couple of weeks, we're gonna shoot a video for the first official single, which is called 'The Devil In I'. So we're gonna shoot a video for that. that's about all I know right now. 'Cause we're still finishing mixes. We've still got a couple of songs left that need final mixes, then it'll go to mastering, and everything will just start kind of coming together, and with a more stable, final release date, and as soon as we know that, the world will know."


In the meantime, the band released a digital single for “The Negative One” today, August 05th through iTunes.

There’s more Slipknot material to come in the not too distant future. Vocalist Corey Taylor was interviewed on the ‘BBC Radio 1 Rock Show‘ last night and spoke a lot on the bands forthcoming plans. He mentioned that they are eyeing an October release for their new album right around ‘Knotfest‘ and are currently finishing up the mixes for it.

Percussionist M. Shawn Crahan handled the artwork for the release while a new single titled “Devil In I” will have a video for it shot and released in the coming weeks. Touring plans this year include the US and Japan with world touring to commence in early 2015.

Speaking on “The Negative One” and the new album, Taylor offered:

“People don’t know what to expect from us and that’s kinda the way we like it. the great thing is that—I was telling this to somebody the other day—”The Negative One” isn’t our single. That was just a gift for the fans, like we wanted them to hear a piece of the album. The single comes out in a few weeks and it’s completely different. It’s more melodic, but it’s dark, it’s powerful man, its something different, people are going to lose their minds when they hear that.”

He later continued to discuss the track:

“It’s got the spirit. The thing I love is that everyone’s reactions are very, very similar. They love the fact that there’s new Slipknot out. They also love the fact that it feels like old school meets new school. Like you can feel the original craziness of the early stuff but you can tell that the evolution has happened. And that’s kind of what we were shooting for, ya know? Remember I said I wanted the album to feel like a cross between “Iowa” and “Vol. 3” and I think we did that. Wait till you hear the whole album, because this story is so deep and so honest and so crazy that people are going to lose their minds when they hear it.”

Taylor also addressed the skepticism the band faced after the passing of bassist Paul Gray and the departure of drummer Joey Jordison from the lineup. While replacements have yet to be announced,Taylor offered:

“It’s kind of the double-edged sword of word of mouth isn’t it? One of the best and worst things that you can have is people talking about your band. They’re gonna talk about all the great things, but at the same time speculation can become “fact” over time.

It’s… ya know, certain people are the ones who are described as the ‘main songwriters’ or this guy started the band or that guy started the band. To the point where people forget the truth. They forget what the facts are. So this is kind of a great way for us to basically just shut everyone up, get everyone excited, and to get them talking about positive things now with the band. It’s been a hell of a ride. This last four years have been insane. Whether it’s losing Paul or parting ways with Joe, bands have gone through it before, other bands besides us. It’s one of those occasions where you either rise to the occasion or fall by the wayside and I think we all pulled together and we rose the occasion.”

(Verse 1)
Fire and caffeine, a lot of nicotine
I’m on a burn, so I better tell you everything
The competition, the superstition
Nevermind ‘cause you’re never gonna give in
If acquired and that's how you like it
The same trouble in a different disguise
Bound to walk with a target on my back
At least I’m ready for another attack

(Chorus 1)
The Lord of lies
The morning star
You had to be set free
Opposing sides
Your choices are
The negative one and me

(Verse 2)
Svengali, wail with the enemies
I never follow and I never make apologies
Your divisions, are gonna get ya
Because you won't disappoint each other
Center for the cynical, you're so political
You’re getting ready ‘cause the first move is critical
Reciprocity, somebody's listening
Until we learn from our time we can never die

(Chorus 2)
The Lord of lies
The morning star
You had to be set free
Opposing sides
Your choices are
The negative one and me
The negative one and me

(Refrain)
I hope you live
To see the day
When your world comes up in flames
And as you die
You see my face
You're the only one to blame
(Fuck) (Bridge)
The Prescient, the Nascent
The quotient (They all will fall)
The Cystic, symbolic, condition (Systemic)
Egregious, replete with
These lesions (Contaminate)
Succumb to the selfish
Creation (Your failure)

(Verse 3)
Know I got ability, divisibility
I point a finger but it’s always looking back at me
The centerpiece pulling on the mechanism
Unearthing skies of the cataclysm
When the innocent begin to circumvent
The color fades, but the picture is vibrant
What do you believe, doesn't matter now
Turn away, the killer is that of now

(Chorus 2) + (Refrain) + (Chorus 2)

(Outro)
The negative one
The negative one
The negative one
The negative one and me
The negative one and me
The negative one and me
And me

Slipknot were promising something today and they have delivered it in the form of a new song titled 'The Negative One'.

Below is the Official Cover Art for the song.

A stream of that song is currently being served up over at the groups official website, Slipknot1.com. No further details were offered as of yet on the groups new album or recording lineup. Some of the lyrics will certainly sound familiar, while a music video for the song is due on August 5th.

A fifth Slipknot teaser video is up for your perusal over at the bands official website, Slipknot1.com. Release details for the bands new studio album have yet to be unveiled.

Slipknot Teaser #5: “Succumb To/The Selfish/Creation”

Posted on: 08 Aug 2014


The involuntary manslaughter trial of deceased Slipknot bassist Paul Gray’s doctor, Daniel Baldi, has commenced, and Gray’s widow, Brenna has now testified.

According to the Des Moines Register, Brenna Gray took the stand to assert that Baldi continued to prescribe Xanax - an anti-anxiety medication - to Paul, despite the fact that “it was his drug of choice, that he’d struggled with it.” She also testified that she told Baldi she’d found hypodermic needles in their home, and that she took photos of Paul passed out and showed them to Baldi in an effort to convince him of the seriousness of Gray’s addiction. During cross-examination, Baldi’s defense attorney, Guy Cook, asserted “that medical records included no reference to her sharing pictures of her passed-out husband with Baldi or of her telling the doctor about finding needles,” and “that among the numerous pill bottles police found in the hotel room, only one had contained drugs prescribed by Baldi… those pills were Suboxone, a medication for people trying to break drug addiction.”

That Brenna Gray doesn’t have any kind words for Dr. Baldi isn’t surprising… but that she also holds the other members of Slipknot accountable for Paul’s death is. From the Register:

“She said she called her husband’s bandmates, but none offered to help. Slipknot bandmates Corey Taylor and Shawn Crahan are listed as potential witnesses in the trial. ‘One was playing golf two minutes away from our house but couldn’t come,’ she testified. ‘Nobody else cared, nobody was involved. They told me it was my problem.’ Two days later, he was found dead in his hotel room.”

Is it possible that Paul Gray’s bandmates were really so callous? It does seem odd to me that Brenna would appear with the band at a press conference just days after Paul’s death if she really thought they hadn’t done everything they could to help… but I know people’s heads aren’t always on straight during the grieving process, too. Ultimately, the only people who may ever know the truth are Brenna and the eight surviving members of Slipknot.

You can watch video footage of Brenna Gray’s testimony below, and read the Des Moisnes Register’s full report here.

SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor says fans "will lose their minds" when they hear the band's long-awaited new studio album, tentatively due before the end of the year via Roadrunner Records.

Speaking to Kristyn Clark of Pop Culture Madness on the red carpet of last week's "Monster Energy Roast On The Range With Corey Taylor" event in Columbus, Ohio, Corey said about his plans for the rest of 2014: "The rest of the summer is just finishing up a certain album . And that's about it, really. I've got a handful of shows that I'm doing with STONE SOUR in July, and then everything is SLIPKNOT."

Pressed about the direction of the new SLIPKNOT material, Taylor said: "I will say that, at the moment, right now, it feels like a great mesh of  'Iowa' and  'Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)'. You've got the gorgeous melodies and the artistic direction of 'Vol. 3' and then you've got the absolute brutality of 'Iowa'. And I think people are gonna lose their minds when they hear it."

Taylor said in an interview with Front Row Live Entertainment on May 12 that the band's first album in six years is "coming along," adding, "I actually left the studio to come right down here. So it's a matter of time, trust me. It's gonna be rad . . . Everything is going exactly how it needs to go. So it's gonna be really awesome."

Even though SLIPKNOT's last album, "All Hope Is Gone", came out in 2008, Taylor said, "The good thing is we've always been writing, so there's a ton of stuff that we're pretty stoked on. It's exactly what you want it to be."

SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that he has high hopes for the band's next album. "That record is going to be, I predict, one of the most serious things that we will have ever comprehended that we've ever done in our life," he said. "And we pretty much say that on every record, but I really feel that when the time comes, what will be on hand is going to be something almost unimaginable."

The new SLIPKNOT album will be the band's first since the 2010 death of bassist Paul Gray and the late 2013 dismissal of drummer Joey Jordison.

The band is rumored to have recruited drummer Jay Weinberg to play on the new album. Weinberg is the son of Max Weinberg, longtime BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND THE E STREET BAND drummer.
