Commenting about the new album the band's lead vocalist Corey Taylor said to Billboard.com, "We have made an album that will show the road behind, the road ahead, and where we are as men." Corey then also stated that the new record is "the best thing I've ever made. And I challenge anyone to prove me wrong."
Moreover, the singer also added that "All Hope Is Gone" has 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." Meanwhile, explaining about the theme for the songs lyrics on the upcoming album Corey said, "Instead of bitching about what went wrong in my life, I'm bitching about what's wrong in life, period."
Beside preparing their new album, Slipknot have also announced that they will be hitting the road again this year. The band will be performing 30 shows for the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem tour, which will kick off on July 9 at the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn, Washington.
