Slipknot look like they could be back in the studio after the band posted a new photo online.
Shawn Crahan and frontman Corey Taylor has appeared on the band’s Twitter page. It was captioned “2019”, leading fans to speculate they have begun working on a new release for next year.
Corey Taylor gave fans an update on new material earlier this month, saying:
“I know that we’re gonna try and put an album out next year – however, that is all speculation. The best way to make God laugh is to announce your plans out loud. So I’m just going with the flow. The plan right now is next year but that is a huge plan because we still haven’t narrowed anything down, so we will definitely see what happens.”
He also explained that the band had been “writing tons of music” while he had “written lyrics to almost all of it.” “We’re going to start trying to put together demos here and there with the time off that I have and really try to get ahead of the curve as far as what happens next.”

It's been three years since Slipknot's last album .5 The Gray Chapter but the Iowan wrecking machine have kept us satiated with the release of new live movie Day Of The Gusano. Filmed at the band's first-ever show in Mexico City, headlining Knotfest, the historical performance was captured on multiple cameras and directed by Slipknot's purveyor of darkness Shawn Crahan aka Clown.
We caught up with Clown to talk about their Mexican experience and what the future holds for The Knot.
“It’s finances, it’s the right time, it’s wondering about that society. It’s very difficult for kids there to pay for tickets. They have to work months and months and months. So it’s just not easy to pick up and go to Mexico City and do a show.”
“We’ve heard from day one in our career how crazy Mexican people go off at a show, how unified they are. You say ‘jump’ and they all jump, and you can feel it. So we thought, ‘Why not make this show a Knotfest?’ And we documented it, because it was a really special thing.”
“I came in about a month or so early to do press and I hung out with all the promoters – they took me to all the food places. I ate all the authentic stuff. I ate crickets, I ate ants, larvae… I will eat anything you want. I love all that stuff.”
