Faithful maggots who have been pining away for new Slipknot since the release of ‘All Hope Is Gone’ way back in 2008 are going to have to keep waiting for awhile, because the band has no plans to record.

But fans in the US can take heart knowing that there’s an American tour on the horizon for next year, according to drummer Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan.

In a Facebook post, Crahan promised Slipknot will be “touring by next June in America only.” The shows will represent the band’s first US gigs since the death of bassist Paul Gray, who passed away last year.

“No album yet because it is too soon and there are no songs yet because the band needs to come together to write this next one,” Crahan wrote. “I cannot wait to feel the ideas like choking on color. Everything happens for a reason, so be ready.”
