Currently tearing up the US on their Knotfest Roadshow, the ’Knot will return with new music “in the next month or so”, according to frontman Corey Taylor.
Speaking on The Eddie Trunk Podcast, Taylor told the host that the band’s follow-up to We Are Not Your Kind is “pretty much done… probably about 80 per cent done.“
“We’re finishing up some music, [and] I’ve got a couple more songs to sing,” Taylor disclosed. “However, I will say this: don’t be surprised if in the next month or so you hear something new.”
Asked if this would be a “well-in-advance single kind of vibe”, Taylor responded “more of a ‘Let’s bludgeon everybody and remind them why we’re still Slipknot’ kind of vibe.”
“This will be the release before we get to the single,” he added. “A little teaser to give people a taste. Kind of like what we did with All Out Life, but in the way that we didn’t put All Out Life on the album, this will actually be on the album, and it’s… I’m pretty stoked man, it’s going to remind people why they love Slipknot.”
