News - SLIPKNOT To Release New Music In 2013?
By: Georges Abi Fadel
Slipknot have a busy slate for 2012. They will be spending the summer on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival, and are planning some international touring as well. But the thing everybody wants is new music from the band. Frontman Corey Taylor has confirmed that there will eventually be a new album, and Clown has hinted at it in the past as well. Today, we have more concrete info from Clown. He recently spoke to Kerrang magazine in the UK, and mentioned what plans the band have beyond this Summer's touring:“After [Mayhem Fest], we’ll probably take some time off,” he said.
“It could be a month, it could be a couple of months, maybe even a year… After that time, I’ll be over the immediate grieving process for Paul [Gray, bassist who died in an accidental overdose in 2010]. I’ll never be alright with it, but that’s going to be enough time to get focused.”
As for what we can expect the sound of the album to be, Clown already has a vision:
“The next album, it’s going to be serious. I feel that it will be a lot like Iowa, but it'll be ‘for’ things, rather than ‘against’ them,” he said, “Iowa was against everything, even ourselves. But this next record, this will be for ourselves, for Paul, for his family.”
Sounds like there will be some angry music in the works in 2013. This is great news for Slipknot fans! I can't wait to hear what they have up their sleeves.
