Slipknot Latest News


Corey Taylor says Slipknot fans are blaming him for the band's dismissal of drummer Joey Jordison.

Corey Taylor tells to XFM: "That's the burden of being the frontman. But I'm not the boss. Trust me. It's very much a committee. I help make decisions, but I don't make. But that's the perception. I'm a big boy. I can take it. I have a Hello Kitty pillow that I cry into every night. But that's not the point. It keeps me humble. It keeps me where I need to be. You just kind of have to take it and roll with it. People dog me now, but they'll love me later, and it's just the way it's always been."

"It'll definitely make you sleep on your side of the bed, man. It's pretty ridiculous. You stay as far away from the windows as possible. It gets weird with our fans, man. I mean, it's got to the point where there's almost, like, a Twin Peaks vibe to it. At one point there was a whole message board dedicated to measuring the forehead of one of the models in The Negative One video. I promise, this is true. And I'm reading this, going, 'Wow!'

"I love it, though. I love it. I think it's great. Because, again, I've always said I'd rather have people talking about me, whether it's negative or positive, than not talking at all. Because as long as your name's in that conversation, it's carrying on the legacy. And trust me, I'm one of the most hated dudes right now. You have no idea. The stuff that's coming out of some of these people's mouths. If I took any of it seriously, I wouldn't be on the mic with you right now, I'd be curled up in a foetal position on my bed, sucking on my own thumb, because it's ridiculous."

Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor and percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan gave a revealing interview to Rollingstone.com about the difficult road to their soon-to-be-released new album, “.5: The Gray Chapter“. Crahan revealed that the album’s opening cut “XIX” drove him to tears:

“I don’t usually let people see me cry. It’s too hard. But when I heard what Corey Taylor sang on the song ‘XIX,’ I cried and cried and cried. It hurt so bad.”

Crahan also revealed that the bands new drummer—reportedly Jay Weinberg—went through an initiation of sorts at the hands of the band. Crahan flew him to Des Moines, IA to the grave of the bands late bassist Paul Gray, stating:

“I made him pay his respects and say hello. I told him what we’re gonna do, and we got on a fucking plane and flew to fucking L.A.”

Both Crahan and fellow percussionist Chris Fehn also spent a good time standing in front of the drummer, yelling and flipping him off as he played to initiate him into the outfit. Taylor in particular stated that the process of making the album and the adversity they faced making it has made them more appreciate of each other:

“When we were younger, we took each other for granted. We didn’t allow ourselves to – for want of a better word – love each other. We loved what we did together, but we didn’t allow ourselves to appreciate each other for who we are individually. We learned the hard way that you can paint yourself right out of a picture, if you’re not family. I think that’s the biggest way that we’ve changed. We’ve started listening instead of screaming. We’ve started reaching out and showing appreciation for each other, whereas before we might have been a little too proud, a little too stubborn. Losing Paul shook us to or foundations, but luckily that foundation held. We didn’t realize we were taking our time with Paul for granted. I’ll be damned if I do it with these guys.”

.5: The Gray Chapter” is due in stores October 21st on Roadrunner Recorders.

SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor says that when he first saw the image that became the cover artwork for the band's long-awaited fifth album, ".5: The Gray Chapter", he was "so blown away" that he immediately knew SLIPKNOT had found what it was looking for.

The ".5: The Gray Chapter" was designed by M. Shawn Crahan, better known as Clown, who is the percussionist and founding member of SLIPKNOT. Crahan is also the art director for SLIPKNOT and directed their DVDs, "Disasterpieces", "Voliminal: Inside The Nine", "Of The (sic)", and "(sic)nesses: Live at Download". He has been the creative vision behind the band since their inception.

"The minute I saw that image, I knew that it was the cover," Taylor told Mistress Carrie of the Worcester/Boston, Massachusetts radio station WAAF, "because the great thing about Clown is that… He does all the artwork for us, he comes up with so much of the concepts, and he's really never gotten the amount of credit that I think he deserves. So when he came in, he had some of this fantastic artwork, I was so blown away. But that one image was so striking, and I think it told so many different stories just in that one image. Because it's black and white, but if you look at it, there's so much gray in it without the color gray even being there. I just knew that was our moment, that was our image, that's what we were gonna put up and hold up to the world and say, 'This is our album.' I just knew that was it."
