SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor says fans "will lose their minds" when they hear the band's long-awaited new studio album, tentatively due before the end of the year via Roadrunner Records.
Speaking to Kristyn Clark of Pop Culture Madness on the red carpet of last week's "Monster Energy Roast On The Range With Corey Taylor" event in Columbus, Ohio, Corey said about his plans for the rest of 2014: "The rest of the summer is just finishing up a certain album . And that's about it, really. I've got a handful of shows that I'm doing with STONE SOUR in July, and then everything is SLIPKNOT."
Pressed about the direction of the new SLIPKNOT material, Taylor said: "I will say that, at the moment, right now, it feels like a great mesh of 'Iowa' and 'Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)'. You've got the gorgeous melodies and the artistic direction of 'Vol. 3' and then you've got the absolute brutality of 'Iowa'. And I think people are gonna lose their minds when they hear it."
Taylor said in an interview with Front Row Live Entertainment on May 12 that the band's first album in six years is "coming along," adding, "I actually left the studio to come right down here. So it's a matter of time, trust me. It's gonna be rad . . . Everything is going exactly how it needs to go. So it's gonna be really awesome."
Even though SLIPKNOT's last album, "All Hope Is Gone", came out in 2008, Taylor said, "The good thing is we've always been writing, so there's a ton of stuff that we're pretty stoked on. It's exactly what you want it to be."
SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that he has high hopes for the band's next album. "That record is going to be, I predict, one of the most serious things that we will have ever comprehended that we've ever done in our life," he said. "And we pretty much say that on every record, but I really feel that when the time comes, what will be on hand is going to be something almost unimaginable."
The new SLIPKNOT album will be the band's first since the 2010 death of bassist Paul Gray and the late 2013 dismissal of drummer Joey Jordison.
The band is rumored to have recruited drummer Jay Weinberg to play on the new album. Weinberg is the son of Max Weinberg, longtime BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND THE E STREET BAND drummer.
