SLIPKNOT: European Festival Appearances Announced - May 19, 2008
SLIPKNOT has scheduled the following European dates in August:

Aug. 22 - Leeds Festival - Leeds, UK
Aug. 24 - Reading Festival - Reading, UK
Aug. 29 - Two Days A Week Festival - Wiesen, Austria
Aug. 31 - Area4 Festival - L├╝dinghausen, Germany

According to the French concert information/ticketing web site InfoConcert.com, SLIPKNOT, MACHINE HEAD and CHILDREN OF BODOM will perform at the Zenith de Paris venue in Paris, France on November 21, 2008. This may or may not be the first leaked date of a massive European tour this fall.

SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor told Billboard.com on Tuesday (May 13) that the band's new album, tentatively due out on August 12, will "rip your face off," adding, "I don't think the world will be ready for this album." The group's yet-to-be-titled fourth effort will follow up 2004's "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)", with Taylor calling it a "very dark" cross between that and its 2001 sophomore CD, "Iowa". Taylor described the new record as having "so much power in it and yet there are so many great spots for melody...It's a controlled chaos that hits you right out of the gate."

Taylor, who also fronts the more melodic STONE SOUR, said that his vocals are in a similar vein on this SLIPKNOT outing. He explained, "I got to the point where I was tired of pretending that I couldn't sing every time I made a SLIPKNOT album, so this time I'm going all out."

As for the album's lyrical direction, Taylor revealed, "Instead of bitching about what went wrong in my life, I'm bitching about what's wrong in life, period."

Taylor also said that new music is already in the works for the third STONE SOUR album, which will follow 2006's "Come What(ever) May".

New images on SLIPKNOT's official web site have hinted at a change in the masks and costumes that are a trademark of the Iowa-based nine-piece. Taylor described the new outfits as "evolved," adding that they are "very dark and will fit in everything image-wise that we're making with this album."

SLIPKNOT will co-headline this summer's Rockstar Energy Mayhem tour with DISTURBED, beginning on July 9 in Seattle.
