During a yesterday’s appearance (May 22) on We Are Hear‘s “Raise Your Horns With Lzzy Hale,” SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor has revealed that he has finished recording his debut solo album.
When asked what he has been working on during coronavirus lockdown, Corey responded: “I secretly recorded my first solo album. I did with the band I’ve been using for my solo shows for years, and just a bunch of people that I’ve been working with forever.
“So it’s Jason [Christopher on bass], Dustin [Schoenhofer] on drums, from WALLS OF JERICHO and countless other things, and [guitarist] Zach Throne, who I’ve been jamming with for a long time, and Tooch [guitarist Christian Martucci], actually, from STONE SOUR. All five of us did it. We went in and we recorded 25 songs in about two and a half weeks, and we did everything live. And it’s dope — really, really cool.”
“All the songs are things that I’ve written over the years but they didn’t really fit with either band,” Corey continued. “So it’s stuff that I’ve just kind of been sitting on. And I realized — I just kind of turned around and I was just, like, ‘Geez, I’ve got all these songs.’
“And I’ve been kind of talking about doing a solo album anyway, and I was just, like, ‘This is the perfect time to do it.’ And picking those guys was the perfect combo, ’cause we all just love the same kinds of music — the same kinds of rock, the same kinds of punk, the same kinds of metal, the same kinds of everything — and we all were able to incorporate those influences into everything.”
