So, there is talk, and so far just talk, about a new Slipknot album. Yes the follow up to ".5: The Gray Chapter" may finally be on the way! The talk has come from percussionist, Clown, and Guitarist Jim Root. Clown told Rolling Stone that he plans to sit down with Root to start writing new music as early as February. This will be a bit of a change for Clown, as he has been busy directing movies for the better part of the year.
Clown and Root's announcement comes not long after we got some details from Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor. He said during the Gray Chapter tour that the band would take a few years off to do their own things after the tour, but that the next album could be a double concept album. Taylor tied up his statement by measuring his goals to that of Pink Floyd's The Wall or Prince's Purple Rain with an album and a movie.
Well, it's been a few years, Corey Taylor has collaborated with seemingly every band on the planet recently, and one of their members is now a feature film director, so new music from Slipknot could be right around the corner!
