Rockers Slipknot have slammed rumours that they are on the verge of splitting up, confirming fans can look forward to a new album in 2006.

Drummer and songwriter JOEY JORDISON is currently working on new tracks with guitarist PAUL GRAY, and trivialises the 'rows' which are said to have been key in the band's reported break-up.

He says, "At the moment there are nothing more than riffs.

"I don't know about the rest of guys in the band but as one of the main songwriters I can say that there will definitely be another Slipknot album."
