Soon, the maggots of the world will be sated via the release of a new Slipknot record.
Frontman Corey Taylor recently hinted at the direction of Slipknot’s next studio album, which the band tentatively intend to get together in January to work on.
“I’m writing some demos. Clown is putting some things together. Joey is doing Scar The Martyr, but he’s a fucking machine. He can write at any time. This band is just loaded with writers,” he said.
“We don’t have a definitive start date, which is fine. That’s okay for us now. When we’re ready to make the album, we will. That’s the mindset. Next year we’re going to get together and start putting the pieces together.”
When asked for a description of the record Slipknot have yet to actually write, Taylor said: “It’ll be a cross between Iowa and Vol. 3 in a lot of ways, while also evolving the way we always have. The stuff I’m writing right now is really dark. The stuff Clown is coming with is fucking beyond. It’s really cool. It’s going to be cool to get the alchemists in the same room and see what happens.”
