Looks like Tool isn’t the only band that’s going to be releasing music next year. In an interview with Metal Injection at the Roskilde Festival last week, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor divulged that the band is starting to work on new music, and will convene next year to start working on it.
We are talking about getting together next year and putting some new music together. Everybody’s getting some demos together right now. I’ve got about four or five songs that I’m working on. Joey’s got a ton of stuff. Clown’s got a bunch of stuff. Jim’s got some stuff, Mick…we all write so it’s going to take a lot time to get the madness under control. But right now that’s the plan, is to get together early next year and start throwing ideas at each other.
It’s been five years since the release of All Hope is Gone, and between a hiatus following the death of founding member Paul Gray, and three albums from Taylor and Jim Root’s band Stone Sour, the band have kept themselves busy in the interim. Slipknot is one of the few metal bands whose albums have all gone at least gold, and even without an album out, they’ve been able to successfully tour. New music from the band in 2014 would catapult them to the short list of “most anticipated in 2014” metal albums.
