We don't know about you, but around here, September brings to mind tours and massive live shows — probably because it's the only month where summer and fall, the two biggest touring seasons, collide. So, as our thoughts turn to the gigs we've reported on, witnessed and celebrated in recent weeks and months, we thought we'd get our readers — as in, you! — involved as we attempt to pick rock's greatest live band or artist!
Slipknot have released a new video promoting their upcoming Prepare For Hell Tour (with Korn and King 810), and you can check it out below.

Slipknot have premiered a new song, "The Devil in I," and you can hear it below. It's the first official single from their upcoming fifth album. As always, give it a listen and let us know what you think in the comments or on Facebook!
I know what you’re thinking. Slipknot and “acoustic” just don’t go together. But the band, Listopad, disagrees. And you will be glad you do when you check out their acoustic video of Slipknot’s “Before I Forget.” This super cool unplugged take is loaded with energy and angst.
Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour has no problem going acoustic. In fact, he’s played loads of acoustic covers, and we must say, he sounds downright bitchin’. Here Taylor tackles the classic Black Sabbath track “Paranoid.”
Officer Downe, the original graphic novel created by Joe Casey (Man of Action) and artist Chris Burnham, is getting the feature-film treatment with Slipknot's Shawn "Clown" Crahan set to direct the Casey-penned script.
