SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor recently sat down with Kerrang! and spoke about the band’s plans for the near future.
He said (see video below): “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. And we talk to [concert promoter] 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.”
Corey’s comments come three months after he told “Good Company” that SLIPKNOT is “thinking about putting another album out maybe [in 2021]. But I don’t know. I don’t know what the plan is yet. But I know that we were talking about doing it, ’cause we only have one album left on our contract [with our record label].”
In early 2020, Crahan said that 11 previously unreleased songs were recorded by four members of SLIPKNOT during the sessions for their 2008 LP “All Hope Is Gone” which will arrive at some point during the “We Are Not Your Kind” touring cycle.
