This tour also marks the band's first trip to Russia, where they will be headlining Olympic Stadium!"

Commented SLIPKNOT vocalist Corey Taylor: "It's been a long time coming... I know the European fans have been waiting for this for a very long time. We are breathlessly waiting, as well. We cannot wait to throw down with them!"

The tour dates are as follows:

Additional dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor told on May 13 that the band's new album, tentatively due out in late August, will "rip your face off," adding, "I don't think the world will be ready for this album." The group's yet-to-be-titled fourth effort will follow up 2004's "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)", with Taylor calling it a "very dark" cross between that and its 2001 sophomore CD, "Iowa". Taylor described the new record as having "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."

New images on SLIPKNOT's official web site have hinted at a change in the masks and costumes that are a trademark of the Iowa-based nine-piece. Taylor described the new outfits as "evolved," adding that they are "very dark and will fit in everything image-wise that we're making with this album."

SLIPKNOT will co-headline this summer's Rockstar Energy Mayhem tour with DISTURBED, beginning on July 9 in Seattle.
