SLIPKNOT REVEAL NEXT SINGLE, RELEASE DATE FOR NEW ALBUM

posted on 08 Aug 2014

There’s more Slipknot material to come in the not too distant future. Vocalist Corey Taylor was interviewed on the ‘BBC Radio 1 Rock Show‘ last night and spoke a lot on the bands forthcoming plans. He mentioned that they are eyeing an October release for their new album right around ‘Knotfest‘ and are currently finishing up the mixes for it.

Percussionist M. Shawn Crahan handled the artwork for the release while a new single titled “Devil In I” will have a video for it shot and released in the coming weeks. Touring plans this year include the US and Japan with world touring to commence in early 2015.

Speaking on “The Negative One” and the new album, Taylor offered:

“People don’t know what to expect from us and that’s kinda the way we like it. the great thing is that—I was telling this to somebody the other day—”The Negative One” isn’t our single. That was just a gift for the fans, like we wanted them to hear a piece of the album. The single comes out in a few weeks and it’s completely different. It’s more melodic, but it’s dark, it’s powerful man, its something different, people are going to lose their minds when they hear that.”

He later continued to discuss the track:

“It’s got the spirit. The thing I love is that everyone’s reactions are very, very similar. They love the fact that there’s new Slipknot out. They also love the fact that it feels like old school meets new school. Like you can feel the original craziness of the early stuff but you can tell that the evolution has happened. And that’s kind of what we were shooting for, ya know? Remember I said I wanted the album to feel like a cross between “Iowa” and “Vol. 3” and I think we did that. Wait till you hear the whole album, because this story is so deep and so honest and so crazy that people are going to lose their minds when they hear it.”

Taylor also addressed the skepticism the band faced after the passing of bassist Paul Gray and the departure of drummer Joey Jordison from the lineup. While replacements have yet to be announced,Taylor offered:

“It’s kind of the double-edged sword of word of mouth isn’t it? One of the best and worst things that you can have is people talking about your band. They’re gonna talk about all the great things, but at the same time speculation can become “fact” over time.

It’s… ya know, certain people are the ones who are described as the ‘main songwriters’ or this guy started the band or that guy started the band. To the point where people forget the truth. They forget what the facts are. So this is kind of a great way for us to basically just shut everyone up, get everyone excited, and to get them talking about positive things now with the band. It’s been a hell of a ride. This last four years have been insane. Whether it’s losing Paul or parting ways with Joe, bands have gone through it before, other bands besides us. It’s one of those occasions where you either rise to the occasion or fall by the wayside and I think we all pulled together and we rose the occasion.”

In the meantime, the band released a digital single for “The Negative One” today, August 5th through iTunes
