In a recent interview with Kerrang! magazine, Slipknot percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan stated that the band will be recording another album: “No one will push it, because it’s going to be a big one. It’ll be closer to ‘Iowa’, but it’ll be sadder and crazier. And really thought provoking, it could even be conceptual. We’re still taking some time to reflect on our brother [Paul Gray]. Everybody needs to be collecting thoughts so they can get it out and no one has really had time to collect thoughts yet. But we’re the fucking ‘KNOT. And when we come out, you’ll know your band is done.”
However, singer Corey Taylor has many times said that he is unsure if the band will record another album. In fact, speaking to the same magazine in August, Taylor said, “It’s still too soon. At least that’s how I feel. I’m not ready to make a Slipknot album.”
Guys, no offense, but you all need to get your story straight within your own camp before releasing conflicting stories. I’m all for a new Slipknot album but I need to see every member have the same energy and conviction as the other. Take your time, collect your thoughts, grieve, do what you need to do. Then come back and show me what you all can do. I know you’ve got it in you.
