Corey Taylor of Slipknot has spoke on the new Slipknot album, which Taylor says he will “try and put an album out next year (2019).” Taylor continue to tease fans saying “the guys are writing tons of music and I’ve written lyrics to almost all of it and we’re going to start trying to put together demos here and there with the time off that I have and really try to get ahead of the curve as far as what happens next.”
Slipknot is hoping to have an album out next year (2019), which they are saying is also just speculation. Saying that “The best way to make God laugh is to announce your plans out loud. So I’m just going with the flow. The plan right now is next year but that is a huge plan because we still haven’t narrowed anything down, so we will definitely see what happens.”
“It’s dark — it’s really dark,” talking on Slipknot’s new material that the band is working on. Taylor tells Musik Universe about three new songs, “It’s probably the most autobiographical I’ve been in years. Just for the fact that I’ve been through a lot the last few years and I’ve been sitting on a lot. So I’m writing from the standpoint of where I am now instead of where I was. Which is so easy to tap into sometimes and it’s so easy to just kind of go there almost on impulse. But now, I’m writing it from the standpoint of a man who’s been through a lot — not just a young man, but an older man — and trying to figure things out.”
Slipknot’s touring cycle in support of their latest record ended in November 2016, with Taylor returning to his other band Stone Sour last year (2017). Taylor and Stone Sour are preparing to embark on another string of U.S. tour dates in support of their sixth studio effort, Hydrograd as well as their run with Ozzy Osbourne this year.
