Slipknot loves its teaser videos and the band has just released a fifth one for its upcoming new album, which is due out sometime this fall. Like the others, this new clip features a series of fast-moving, creepy images, many of them familiar from the previous clips. Meanwhile a post at the band's Facebook page features a photo of someone's gums along with the tag, "Succumb To/The Selfish/Creation."

As for the album, singer Corey Taylor told us the band has finished recording and is now in post-production: "The album is done. Everything's done. Right now we're just, we're getting the artwork together, we're getting all the other accouterments together, and it's feeling really, really good. We're just stoked, you know. Now it's like, 'Okay, we need to hurry up and get it out,' you know. So yeah, we're really excited."

A release date, title and first single have yet to be announced.

Slipknot's fifth studio album and first since 2008's All Hope Is Gone is also the band's first without late bassist Paul Gray, who died in 2010, and drummer Joey Jordison, who was dismissed in late 2013.

Reports have suggested that Slipknot has recruited drummer Jay Weinberg to play on the new album and tour. Weinberg is the son of Max Weinberg, longtime Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band drummer.

The second edition of Slipknot's Knotfest event will take place on October 24th, 25th and 26th in San Bernardino, California. More than two dozen other acts will join the headliners, including Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Of Mice And Men, In This Moment, Hellyeah, Atreyu and many others.
