SLIPKNOT have set a May 25 release date through Roadrunner Records for their much-anticipated, as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2001's "Iowa".

The band are currently preparing to hit the road as part of the fourth installment of the J├Ągermeister Music Tour, beginning March 30 in Orlando, Florida. FEAR FACTORY and CHIMAIRA are also onboard for the five-week trek, which wraps up May 4 in Denver. Tickets for the tour go on sale February 13. A variety of J├Ągermeister-sponsored bands will assume the fourth spot on the bill.

Commented drummer Joey Jordison, "We're back and it's been far too long. On the tour we are ready to get completely back to basics of delivering unbridled brutality your way. This is for the maggots that have stood by us...prepare!"

As previously reported, a brand new SLIPKNOT track, entitled "Don't Get Close", will be featured in an upcoming Activision videogame, tentatively due in April. A slightly reworked version of the song is expected to appear on the upcoming CD, which is currently being recorded with producer Rick Rubin (SYSTEM OF A DOWN, SLAYER, AUDIOSLAVE).

This cd is gonna be some outta this world sh+t. Slipknot is one of my favorite bands because of their different techniques in music. People who don't like them clearly don't know what their about. These people usually are the ones who listen to whats played on the radio, like boyband allstar Linkin park. Anyone can make a song like Linkin Park because their sh+t has no degree of complexity in it. But can anyone make a fast pace wierd sounding, heavy-riffing song like slipknot? Hell no. RadioplayBands like Linkin Park is about pop culture, exploiting rock music to pop culture, and selling records. Basically some fa**ot MTV sh+t. Slipknot is about bringing another form of life to rock music without intent of changing it. Album sales don't make a better band. Bands like Linkin Park are good pop/rap bands, not rock bands. Slipknot is the best example of a good rock band. Hands down...........LP=Sh+t

Sigh. You guys are forgetting, everyone has different opinions. Why go around judging others for what music they listen to or happen to like? Yes, I'm a "maggot" and am totally stoked about the new release. But with douchebags like most of you here.. you're making me kind of regret calling myself a maggot. You need to be more open minded, metal heads should unite instead of thrashing eachothers throats. Whatever, new album, new tours. Can't get enough. Rock. On.

i totally agree, and id like to take the time to defend MushRoomHead, there both great bands and have two diffrent types of music, even corey and J-man can put there sh** behind so lets stop putting MushroomHead down. cause i bet the ones who do put them down have no clue what there about and how thay started. i think it would kick a$$ to see them play together.

Look man, being open minded is a good thing when it comes to listening to what's going to take rock to the next level and keep it rockin. but open your f***in eyes and see what's going on in the world today as rock is concerned. Bands like linkin park is killing rock. They make their sissy boyband music, has the f***in nerve to call it rock, and are zillionaires for that. Little boys and girls listens to that sh** and never gives underground metal a chance. This is why bands like Korn has sold out and are hated by all their former fans, like me. Most up and coming bands will not make it due to this and will later break up or sellout too. POP music is going to take over the rock industry if you f***in b****es keep on supporting poppy sh**ty bands like this..............LINKINPARK=DIARRHEA

Listen, you f*ckers, slipknot may not be as heavy as some bands, but they absolutely kick @ss when it comes to rage music. they let their heart pour out on stage, and do an awesome performance on stage, and as far as i'm concerned, that makes them a damn good band. to everyone who doesn't like them; F*CK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
