It looks like the wait is almost over: Slipknot will be unveiling their new masks soon! Well, that’s what their record label Roadrunner Records say anyway.

Following a cryptic Instagram post from frontman Corey Taylor, Roadrunner tweeted “New @slipknot masks incoming…” along with the same ghostly white image, which we presume is a distorted version of Corey’s new mask… or E.T. lost a fight with some PVA glue the middle of some thick fog. Basically there’s a creepy looking eye, and that’s more than enough to get us excited because it’s been almost five years since the last mask change for .5: The Gray Chapter.

While the identity of Slipknot‘s new bassist and drummer remains under wraps, band frontman Corey Taylor has revealed that both will be wearing a similar mask. Taylor told Full Metal Jackie:

“We wanted to make something that still looked unified but still stayed with the spirit of what the band is all about. Instead of trying to find something that was individualistic, we designed — well, Clown designed a mask that the drummer and the bass player will both wear. On one hand they get a mask but at the same time, it’s not the individual mask that we in the band use.

We knew that any attempt to do anything like that might be taken as disrespectful, but at the same time it’s part of the way of moving, getting past the hardest steps, which is just moving on. So, we decided that we would come up with a mask that works for both the bassist and the drummer and that’s what they’ll wear on stage.”

Speaking on whether or not making the bands new album “.5: The Gray Chapter” was an uncomfortable experience given the passing of bassist Paul Gray and departure of drummer Joey JordisonTaylor replied:

“I don’t know if it was uncomfortable, but the big difference was that it was the first album that we were doing without Paul, without Joe, and you know when you find yourself in a situation like that you either fall back on your heels or you rise to the occasion and you ask yourself how can we kind of fill in those blanks and still make the kind of music we want to listen to?

So I think that the biggest thing for us was to just fill in some really big shoes. Luckily we really rose to the occasion and really kind of went above and beyond as far as musically. I’m loving this new album. I mean just as not only as a person who’s inSlipknot but just as a fan of music like this. I really love what we’ve done on this album.”
