Ahead of their UK and European tour, Slipknot have shared a cryptic teaser video across their social media channels.
The 42-second clip is backed by swirling, trippy sounds that eventually build into a drum beat before cutting off. Visually we see an anonymous, inverted figure wielding butcher knives in slow-motion, drenching in psychedelic colours.
The only word accompanying the video is “soon”.

Over on Instagram, Slipknot have been sharing more warped videos of the same colourful being, but with different sounds playing beneath and – perhaps more importantly – captions.
The captions on the videos include: Fertilization Deployment, The New Individual, The Esoteric Oneself Or Someone, Dreams Of Crops, Matured Ovule, Fertilization Evacuation, Allure Of Indignation and Death Because Of Death.
The band also shared a video that linked to an Instagram account titled thehueisblack01, which has so far shared nine silent videos of the same Slipknot star logo inside a cell.

Speculation on Instagram is rife with Maggots wondering if it’s the sign of a We Are Not Your Kind deluxe edition or just Clown messing around and teasing fans.
Or is it the start of Slipknot’s mooted ‘other album’ from the All Hope Is Gone sessions. Last year, Clown said the band would release eleven songs during the We Are Not Your Kind album cycle, so is this it?
Allegedly titled Look Outside Your Window, Corey said the unreleased material has “much more of a Radiohead vibe.”
Keep your eyes peeled to Kerrang! for the latest developments.
