While we patiently wait for some potentially very big Slipknot news this week (the band are co-headlining Las Vegas’ Sick New World on Saturday, and maybe even playing a one-night-only show at some point before then, too), Jim Root has been busy with another cool project.

A teaser has just launched revealing that the guitarist has been working once again with Harley-Davidson, on a new build with bespoke motorcycle company Motorwitch. A short video shows off various bits of the bike and confirms that “The Motorwitch x James Root build is Surfacing in 2 weeks” (we see what you did there!).

Meanwhile, Slipknot have been teasing something over at While that website tells fans to “Pay attention… the answers are all around you”, we don’t quite have those answers or know what the band are up to just yet, so watch this space. Presumably, though, we’ll be getting to find out their new drummer in all of this

Anyway, check out the Harley teaser below.
