It should come as no surprise given the information revealed on Amazon.com and ads plastered all over web with "All Hope Is Gone," but Slipknot has announced its fourth album as "All Hope is Gone." "All Hope Is Gone" will be released via Roadrunner Records on August 26, 2008. The album was recorded this spring in Slipknot’s home state and is co-produced by the band and Dave Fortman.
"The nine" will spend their summer laying waste to arenas in North America as they headline the first annual Rock Star Energy Mayhem Festival, their first tour in three years.
"All Hope is Gone" is more of a statement than a record. Corey Taylor comments, "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. And I challenge anyone to prove me wrong."
The album promises to blend elements of 2004’s Vol 3: (The Subliminal Verses) and 2001’s Iowa, while adding a perspective, freshness and depth that only three years apart can bring. The first single, "Psychosocial," will be delivered to radio on June 30 and will be available digitally on July 1. A complete track listing will be announced shortly.
