Corey Taylor: Slipknot Is “Thinking About Putting Another Album Out” in 2021
In a new interview with Scott Bowling‘s Good Company, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor reveals that the band is considering releasing a new album in 2021.
Asked about the band’s future plans, Taylor said:
“The plan right now with Slipknot is to try and a) finish up the touring next year, and b) we’re thinking about kind of putting another album out maybe next year. But I don’t know. I don’t know what the plan is yet. I just know that we all kind of feel like there’s unfinished business and we wanna finish that out before we do anything. But I know that we were talking about doing it, ’cause we only have one album left on our contract [with our record label].”
That label, of course, is Roadrunner Records.

Earlier this month, Slipknot’s percussionist, Shawn “Clown” Crahan, also said the group had been working on new music:
“Right now is kind of an interesting time. We’re taking this time to write some new music. So for the last week, we’ve been just having a good time, eating a lot of food and writing God music. So we’re having a good time.
“Since everybody’s taken a lot of time off, we thought we’d utilize it by getting together and do what we probably do best, which is write music. So it’s been good, because there’s no pressure. It’s not like we have to. We’re doing it ’cause we want to. And it’s just been a blessing, because boredom can set in. And I know all of us in the world.”
Slipknot’s most recent album, We Are Not Your Kind, was released last year. It debuted at #1 on the charts in the U.S., the U.K., and Australia. It was the band’s third consecutive #1 showing in the U.S., following All Hope is Gone (2008) and .5: The Gray Chapter (2014).
