When it rains it pours when it comes to new Slipknot info. Today, the band released their new single, "The Devil In I", confirmed their new album will be called .5: The Gray Chapter and it will be out in October AND they just announced a U.S. tour.

Slipknot will be taking out Korn and King 810 on the Prepare For Hell tour. I know firsthand that Slipknot have been trying to book a tour with Korn for many many years and finally their schedules aligned where it works out for both parties. It's a bit surreal to see Slipknot headlining over Korn as during their peak, Korn were miles ahead of Slipknot, but times they have changed. As for King 810, this is clearly the biggest touring opportunity the band will ever have. Their music has been compared to both Slipknot and Korn so they will be performing to the exact fan base they hope to cater to. Overall, this will be an interesting tour to see live.

Scott Weiland has slated former band Stone Temple Pilots’ collaboration with Chester Bennington, saying it “didn’t work.”

The Linkin Park singer was drafted in last year after STP announced they’d “terminated” their relationship with Weiland, later describing it as “toxic.”

They launched an EP entitled High Rise and more work is planned – but Weiland insists the project was a flop.

He tells iChill: “It sold 35,000 units. That’s kind of unbelievable considering STP sold over 40million, and I’m sure Linkin Park has sold pretty much the same amount. It didn’t work – people weren’t buying into it.”

He won’t rule out a third stint with the band he co-founded, reflecting: “I’ve learned to never say never in this business.”

Last month Weiland talked up a return to Velvet Revolver, saying he wanted an “easy money” reunion and that he’d spoken to his former colleagues about it.

Now he adds: “I heard they’re auditioning new singers again. Maybe I should go to the cattle call. We did make it work and see success.”

Avenged Sevenfold's Johnny Christ says working on the reissue of second album Waking The Fallen has made him take stock of their success.

The bassist recalls handing out free demos around the time they recorded the 2003 record, set for relaunch in the form of Waking The Fallen: Resurrected.

Christ tells Loudwire: "There was a time when we were in a van and handing out CDs at Warped Tour. We had a two-song EP that we were handing out for free, just to promote ourselves. That's a very different thing than where we are at now."

The reissue includes a DVD which features footage of the band with drummer The Rev, who died in 2009. Although seeing his late friend in film still hurts, Christ says the pain is easing with time.

"Any time we see stuff with Jimmy it's bittersweet," the bassist reports. "Little by little we get by a little better each time. Things start to get a little easier; anyone who's lost someone knows that you still feel that way. But you find out that you can celebrate it rather than let it hurt you.

"It’s actually nice to see The Rev, all in black, wearing makeup and everything like that; it's fun to look back and see that youthful time."

Waking The Fallen: Resurrected is released on August 25.
