SLIPKNOT RELEASES FIRST NEW SONG IN SIX YEARS

Slipknot has released its first new song in six years, titled "The Negative One." The track is streaming at the band's official website slipknot1.com and is the first new music made public from the group's long-awaited fifth studio album, which is due out this fall. Slipknot has yet to unveil the album's title or release date, although a music video for "The Negative One" arrives on Tuesday (August 5th).

The new album is Slipknot's first without late bassist Paul Gray, who died in 2010, and singer Corey Taylor told us that the band's remaining members pulled closer together in the studio: "It was almost like getting to know each other again. We were all kind of grieving in our own way and dealing with things in our own way, and knowing that we had to be healthy to go in, we had to be creative to go in, and knowing that we were gonna have to fill this huge void, we just kind of took it upon ourselves to make up for that emptiness by being a little bit of Paul. Like we were all a little bit of Paul in our own way."

After listening to "The Negative One" for the first time, you must sign up for an e-mail list before you are able to hear it again.

The new music is also the band's first without drummer Joey Jordison, who was dismissed last December.

The identity of the new drummer is yet to be revealed, although it's been speculated that it's Jay Weinberg, son of longtime Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg.

Slipknot's last album was 2008's All Hope Is Gone.
