Slipknot are getting to work on a new album, Corey Taylor has revealed.
The musician has been chatting to bandmate Clown – real name Shawn Crahan – and is excited about the ‘pretty rad’ stuff he’s going to come up with.
Speaking on That Jamieson Show, Corey shared: ‘I was just talking to Clown the other day about what we should…cause we’re obviously thinking about what the next album could be like.
‘And he’s in this trippy place, dude, which is rad. I love it when he’s in this crazy mindset, because I know I’m gonna hear stuff that I’ve never heard before.’
He went on: ‘He’s so goddamn creative, and that inspires Jim (Root). And all the tumblers really start to fall. So it’s pretty rad. I can’t wait.’
It will be the follow up to last year’s We Are Not Your Kind, their sixth studio album, which earned them their first number one album in the UK in 18 years.
The band ended Ed Sheeran’s four-week run at the top spot with his No 6 Collaborations Project.
At the time Clown called We Are Not Your Kind ‘a masterpiece’.
He told NME: ‘I’m so proud of us for where we allowed ourselves to go, because it’s so personal. This is our life, so why shouldn’t we give it? We’re not going to hide it any more. We’re a lot better at speaking as a band about our ailments and maybe even our insecurities.
‘We’re older, we’re able to let it out more and speak to one another about what needs to be. And right now it’s just a pleasure touring and playing shows, being around the fans. It’s the best time in Slipknot ever.’
Their last number one album in the UK was Iowa in 2001.
The masked rockers were forced to cancel their 2020 Knotfest summer tour due to the coronavirus pandemic, which included a date at Milton Keynes’ National Bowl.
‘The band looks forward to performing for its fans again, and will do so when everyone’s safety can be assured’, they said in statement at the time.
