Metal band Slipknot will be doing major work towards a new studio album in March, according to singer Corey Taylor. In an interview with Kerrang! (and excerpted by NME), the vocalist states that the band has 17 demos that they will be taking into the studio.
Taylor states, “I can say that, to me – and this is only my opinion – it’s a cross between ‘Iowa’ and ‘Volume 3…’, but that’s honestly just scratching the surface. I think the fans are going to be very, very excited when they hear this stuff.”
He adds, “I’ve written lyrics for everything that we have right now and it’s feeling pretty good. It feels like the story of the band so far, which is a totally different take on what I’ve been used to writing with Slipknot, but I think because of everything we’ve been through, it’s time to tell that story. It’s going to be everything you want in a Slipknot album, and everything you wouldn’t expect.”
Slipknot’s last album was 2008’s All Hope Is Gone, which hit number 1 in the Billboard 200. The band’s bassist, Paul Gray, passed away in 2010 from a drug overdose.
