Slipknot Latest News


Corey Taylor has told Kerrang magazine that the band will begin "major, major work" on its fifth album in March. 17 demos are ready for SLIPKNOT's first CD since 2008's "All Hope Is Gone" and the first since the 2010 death of bassist Paul Gray and December 2013 departure of drummer Joey Jordison, one of the band's founding members and key songwriters.

Regarding the direction of SLIPKNOT's new material, Taylor said: "I can say that, to me - and this is only my opinion - it's a cross between  'Iowa' and  'Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)', but that's honestly just scratching the surface. I think fans are going to be very, very excited when they hear this stuff."

He added: "I've written lyrics for everything that we have right now and it's feeling pretty good. It feels like the story of the band so far, which is a totally different take on what I've been used to writing with SLIPKNOT, but I think, because of everything we've been through, it's time to tell that story. Not just from our point of view, but from everything around us. So, yeah… it's going to be interesting. It's going to be everything you want in a SLIPKNOT album, and everything you wouldn't expect."

Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOTSTONE SOUR) was interviewed on the February 7-9 edition of Full Metal Jackie's nationally syndicated radio show. You can now listen to the chat using the Podbean widget below. An excerpt from the chat follows.

Full Metal JackieCorey, some great songwriters say the creative process is an excruciating and difficult task. Others say they're just fortunate to be channeling some divine inspiration. Which is it for you?

Corey: Well, it's nothing that cool [laughs], you know? I don't know. I think it comes down to what you wanna say. Because I'm kind of lucky in the fact that I can take something that's in my head and write it down, or I can listen to a piece of music that somebody else has written and try to tap into what the music's saying, and just kind of follow that, you know. I mean nine times out of 10, I'm just kind of following where the music takes me. So, I don't know…

During a recent interview with Rock Revolt Magazine, SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor was asked about the band's recent split with drummer Joey Jordison and how Joey's exit will change the group's sound on its next album.

"Honestly, it depends on who we get ," Taylor said (see video below).

Regarding whether SLIPKNOT has any candidates in mind as a possible replacement for Jordison, Taylor said: "A few people." He added: "As soon as we know , the fans will know. And that's how we're keeping it. We're keeping everything really close to the chest right now. I mean, it's out of respect for Joey, and for us. And there's just a host of legal things that we still need to sort out. It's hard - it's really hard - but the only other was shutting the band down, and none of us wanted to do that. So we're gonna push on."

Singer Corey Taylor #8 is turning his full attention to his other band, SLIPKNOT. With Jim Root, guitarist for both groups, back in Los Angeles writing and demoing material, Corey told The Pulse Of Radio where things stand for the long-awaited record. "Me and Jim have been writing a lot of stuff, and it's really starting to kind of shape up really… I mean, we've got a nice chunk, and now we just kind of need to, you know, shape everything to that SLIPKNOT point of view, that SLIPKNOT way, that SLIPKNOT sound."

He added: "There's an excitement that we haven't felt in a while."

The new SLIPKNOT album will be its first since 2008's "All Hope Is Gone" and the first since the 2010 death of bassist Paul Gray and the recent dismissal of drummer Joey Jordison.

Jim Root told The Pulse Of Radio late last year - before the news about Joey Jordison broke - that he was feeling the urgency to make a new SLIPKNOT album. "You know, we haven't done a record since Paul's been gone and it's been pushing six years. And there's a lot of people in SLIPKNOT and a lot of fans and me myself kind of feel like it's time for that hurdle to be overcome. And for me, that's really like my number one priority and the most important thing for me right now."
