After much hype, including the launch of a series of cryptic videos and a new website complete with a tantalizing countdown clock, Slipknot have announced the release date for their highly anticipated new album, as well as a huge North American "Knotfest Roadshow" tour in support of the record. The LP is set to drop August 9th, with the band scheduled to kick off their newly revealed live dates on July 26th in Mountain View, California; as has been rumored, Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth will play in support. Slipknot were already lined up to play the Iowa State Fair on August 10th, which now turns out to be an even bigger show, coming as it does just a day after the album's release. See the group's North America tour itinerary below; tickets will go on sale for the general public beginning Friday, March 8th at 10:00 a.m. local time at
