Slipknot singer Corey Taylor was recently a guest of the “Good Company” show and talked about the band’s plans once COVID is under control, “The plan right now with Slipknot is to try and a) finish up the touring next year, and b) we’re thinking about kind of putting another album out maybe next year. But I don’t know. I don’t know what the plan is yet. I just know that we all kind of feel like there’s unfinished business and we wanna finish that out before we do anything. But I know that we were talking about doing it, ’cause we only have one album left on our contract.”
This echoes what you heard percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan say last month, “Since everybody’s taken a lot of time off, we thought we’d utilize it by getting together and do what we probably do best, which is write music. So it’s been good, because there’s no pressure. It’s not like we have to. We’re doing it ’cause we want to. And it’s just been a blessing, because boredom can set in. And I know all of us in the world are going crazy, so we’re really lucky to be able to be together and do what we love most.”
Slipknot’s latest album “We Are Not Your Kind” was released in August 2019 and landed at #1 on Billboard’s 200 chart.
Do you think they can repeat that same kind of success?
