SLIPKNOT: 8 Million People Log On To AOL To See New Masks - July 2, 2008
An astonishing 8 million people logged on to AOL to see the new SLIPKNOT masks Tuesday, July 1.

With a press release, and splash pages on all Roadrunner properties, within 24 hours millions logged onto just for the unveiling of SLIPKNOT's new look.

This highly anticipated debut kick-started the launch of SLIPKNOT's new album, "All Hope Is Gone", which was mixed by Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, FEAR FACTORY, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, NAPALM DEATH). Due on August 26 via Roadrunner Records, the disc was recorded with producer Dave Fortman (EVANESCENCE, MUDVAYNE) at a studio near the band's hometown of Des Moines, Iowa.

SLIPKNOT's new single, "Psychosocial", made its way to radio stations on Monday (June 30) and has now been made available for digital download. Percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan told The Pulse of Radio everything he could about the track. "One thing I can feel is like that song has got a lot of, like, you know, I would say social anxiety," he said. "It's got a real good tempo and it's really, you know, today. It's really fun and it's different. I think most of the stuff that we have is different."

SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor said in a press release about the new CD, "Every album we have made is a statement about that space in time. I think this era is the most mature, most beautiful and the most powerful. We have made an album that will show the road behind, the road ahead, and where we are as men. I think it's the best thing I've ever made."

The last SLIPKNOT studio album, "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)", arrived in 2004 and sold more than a million copies in the U.S.

SLIPKNOT will co-headline the Rockstar Energy Mayhem tour this summer with DISTURBED. The trek, which also features DRAGONFORCE, MASTODON, MACHINE HEAD and others, kicks off on July 9 in Seattle.

Gimmicks aren't my thing, but if those masks float your boat, cool enough.

I just settle for bands who are noted for their music, and not for the shit they wear on their heads.

So I have nothing of worthy contribution to this story other than someone should look at the grammatical error of this sentence and fix it

"With a press release, and splash pages on all Roadrunner properties, within 24 hours millions logged onto just for the unveiling of SLIPKNOT's new look." someone call me a vulgar name for pointing that out. To me, it just needs a comma or maybe just a "had logged onto.."

8 million peices of evidence that this gay band has to wear these outfits to get any attention because their music is absolutely crap. They can make the same shitty music with about 1/3 of the people they have in the band. But they have a DJ so club appearances will always be an option for them.

Respect to the Slipknot supporters. See y'all on what will be the tour of the year (unless NIN are as good as last time, anyway)

I prefer listening to bands for the music, this is all commercial shit and unfortunately 8 million Americans fall for this shit. Only in America

As a traditionalist, I actually used to dislike slipknot. However, I've made a playlist of about 10 songs that I can get into. Also, that is not really a Crow mask, looks more like a twisted jester to me.

Are those masks any different from the shit they wore before?
I wouldn't know, I think their music is crap and I don't follow their costume changes.
Who would waste their time with this kiddie garbage when you have so many TALENTED bands out there who can actually PLAY WELL and don't have to rely on dipshitty costumes to promote their lack of virtuosity.
Bring on the new Morbid Angel. Fuck this sewage.

Slipknot is the metal equivalent of bad tequila shits. You know, the ones that made you feel like you're shitting acid the next day.

Tour of the year ? Are you Shitting Me?
It seems like 4 options are possible...
1, you are being sarcastic
2, you are musically illiterate
3, you are on Really Strong Drugs
4, you are 14 years old
Since you are using words like "foolio" I'm guessing it's the latter.
While you are certainly entitled to your opinion, there is simply NO FUCKING WAY that this could even remotely be considered "Tour of the Year". Therefore, opinions aside you are incorrect.
