After posting several teaser videos online, Slipknot has now officially revealed the full details for the upcoming best-of album "Antennas to Hell." The album is due for release on July 24th, 2012 and Slipknot has issued the following press release:

"The time is right for a 'best of' collection from the band, as it captures the first chapter of Slipknot—a chapter where they’ve gone from unknown to the one of the biggest rock bands in the world, all on their own terms.

"This summer's Mayhem and Knotfest outings celebrate the band and the life of late bassist Paul Gray, and will serve as 'the end of the beginning' for Slipknot—this summer's performances will be the fans' last chance to see them as they are now. Of course the band will continue, but just as inevitable with Slipknot is the fact that the band will evolve, and the future is unwritten. Antennas to Hell serves as a companion to that celebration.

"The two-disc version of Antennas to Hell includes a bonus live CD that captures the band's 2009 performance at the legendary Download Festival in the UK. The live disc showcases the band playing a set of career-spanning classics in front of 80,000 rabid fans. The journey from '(sic)'—track 1 on their self-titled debut—to 'Snuff,' the haunting No. 1 rock track from 2008's All Hope is Gone, proves that. The album features fan favorites, live classics and well-known radio hits.

"Furthering the immersion in the band’s culture, this summer will see the release of the band's first-ever mobile application, Wear the Mask. Part mask builder, part social connector for fans, and 100% Slipknot in its look and execution, the app brings the Slipknot mindset into previously uncharted territory—the mobile devices of fans worldwide. Wear the Mask will be released simultaneously with Antennas to Hell."

The track listing is as follows:

1. (sic)

If BG says it, it must be true. Which is a shame because I'm listening to the best of Skunk Anansie at the moment.

I like Slipknot. Generally. Mostly the self-titled and Iowa, but again... generally. Though this.... sigh. And "Knot Fest?" Cash grab simply because they can't make another album right now and still want a paycheck.

Sad.

IT'S TRUE THAT GREATEST HITS ALBUMS CAN BE SEEN AS A CASH GRAB. CONSIDER KISS! HOWEVER, "ANTENNAS TO HELL" CAN ALSO BE SEEN AS A BOOKEND TO PAUL GRAY'S SLIPKNOT ERA.

Thanks for noticing Spiral. And sure it could be a great bookend if the money generated from the album went to Paul's favorite charity, but that's not the case here is it?

I do, but I wont pick this one up. SK's live performances leave a lot to be desired audio wise.
