A release schedule is not yet known for the follow-up to 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter. The only preview fans have came back on Halloween with the surprise release of “All Out Life.”

Taylor told Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 show on Apple Music at the time the album is “…going to be one of the darkest chapters in Slipknot’s history.  It’s that good…it’s gonna be talking about a lot of things that people are going to need in their life right now.”
