During a recent appearance on “95.5 KLOS,” Corey Taylor has offered an update on new SLIPKNOT music, saying the group might have something “conceptual” under their belt.
“I can’t say too much about it, and I can tell you that currently, we’ve compiled a lot of material, me and Clown have talked about something really, really cool if we could pull it off,” Corey said (watch full interview below.) “There’s a chance that it could be conceptual if we can really do it right. The music is brilliant, it expands on what we did with [2019’s] We Are Not Your Kind and kind of blossoms from there.
“But the great thing is ù it’s got not only that, but it’s got everything that you would want from a SLIPKNOT project — there’s the heavy stuff, there’s the dark stuff, there’s the melodic stuff, there’s the weird stuff,” he continued. “We have so many different flavors that we can play with that now, at this point, it’s just us mixing and matching and seeing what excites us.
“So that’s all I can say for right now but I can tell you that it’s really, really good. We’re entering a realm that we’ve never been and that to us is exciting. Especially after all of these years, we pride ourselves on always being able to try and top ourselves, and if we can pull this off, this may be the ultimate top ourselves.”
During a recent appearance on Kerrang! Radio, Corey discussed SLIPKNOT‘s plans for the coming months, and possible return on the road.
“SLIPKNOT is booked to tour America end of September. We are booked to go out. And we haven’t heard anything yet that it’s different,” Corey said. “And we talk to Live Nation every week. We’re up to date on all of the different restrictions, not only in the [various U.S.] states, but federally. We’re, obviously, keeping an eye on everything and kind of going from there. Other than that, right now, there’s some stuff brewing that I can’t talk about, but it’s massive. I can say this: you will hear about it probably in the next month or so, let’s put it that way.”
