Corey Taylor Says He’s up for the Challenge on the new Slipknot Album, his CMFT solo tour and KNOTFEST 2021!
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor recently commented on the progress with Slipknot's seventh studio album.
"It was something that we just kind of started kicking around, obviously, in quarantine. And Clown hit me up — he was, like, 'Hey, we're gonna start working on some music. Are you down?' I was, like, 'Absolutely. Start sending me some stuff, and we'll start figuring it out.' So they started putting together some rad music, man — really cool stuff that made me start thinking outside my own box and challenging myself. And it was cool, 'cause I got excited again about exploring some different stuff and not just being so driven in my own thing but thinking outside, trying to tell other people's stories again. And that's kind of where I'm going with this new Slipknot album — trying to tell other people's stories and not just my own. And it's feeling pretty rad, man. I can't wait for people to hear it." - Corey Taylor Speaking with Des Moines Iowa's Lazer 103.3
