Slipknot “Prepare” Fans for Hell and the “Gray Chapter”


This past weekend was a great one for fans of Slipknot because the metal band has revealed a lot of information about their upcoming album.

Things first started with a stream of a new song, “The Devil in I” which made its debut yesterday afternoon as well as a confirmation that the new album is set for an October release date. Today, the Iowa-based band not only revealed the name of their new studio album, but that they will be hitting the road beginning in late-October.

Slipknot’s new record will be titled .5: The Gray Chapter and is set to be released on October 21 through Roadrunner Records. In support of the album, the band will be heading out on the “Prepare for Hell” Tour with Korn and King 810.

The tour will begin its trek across North America (and some random days in Japan) with two days at Knotfest, their own music festival on October 25 and 26 in San Bernardino, CA. Then, the official tour will begin on October 29 in El Paso at El Paso Community college and will wrap up on December 7 in Boston at the Tsongas Arena.

Tickets for the tour will go on sale beginning September 5, but we’re going to assume that’s for general sales and special pre-sale option may be coming soon.
