What they’re saying:
Joey Jordison spoke positively about a new album to Billboard in Nov 2010:

“It’s already in motion. It’s definitely exciting. It’s a little emotional, of course, but I think it’s going to be really, really cool and I think it’s gonna be a really, really great record because everyone’s really involved in the process.”

However, a couple of days later Corey Taylor tweeted this and this:

“Before anyone gets the wrong idea, let me be clear. I have NO PLANS to make a new Slipknot album any time soon. Shows? Maybe. Album? No.”

“As for Joey’s comments, he took that on himself to say that in print. I can think of 5 people in this band who haven’t written/heard a thing”

Plus there was this interview with guitarist Mick Thompson in January 2011 at NAMM:

Thrash Hits verdict:
It goes without saying that we would all love a new Slipknot album to accompany the band’s shows but judging by the conflicting comments, it doesn’t look like all the band members are pulling in the same direction so a new album is looking unlikely. Ultimately, we know very little. However, we all know how quickly people in bands can change their minds so who knows? One question is: How could Joey have said that the new album was already in motion if it really wasn’t?
