The New Slipknot Has Cover Art and Title, Still On for This Spring, Says Corey Taylor

0

Back in December, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor announced that the band’s new album would be coming out in spring of 2022, to which we said, Pffff, hokay, pal, we’ll be excited to review it in summer of 2023. But now, Corey has revealed that the album has a title and cover art, and is still on for this season.

Speaking to Eddie Trunk, who at this point is like a Corey Taylor charmer of sorts, the singer said [transcribed by Blabbermouth],

“The record is actually in the process of being mixed right now. Everything is finished, so it’s just being mixed right now, which is rad news. So it’s probably gonna take…I think it’s probably gonna be another three months.

“The artwork’s done. We just came up with the title. I’m not gonna tell you it right now. But we’re really stoked. So hopefully three months from now — well, less than that — we’ll get the single out, and then three months from now we’ll get the album out.”

“It’s really killer, man. It’s darker than [2019’s] We Are Not Your Kind, but there’s a ton of melody. I’ve been telling everybody that it’s like a heavier version of [2004’s] Vol. 3. It’s got so many textures and layers. The heavy stuff has attack but the melodic stuff you can just sink your teeth in; there’s a lot of great melodies and hooks. I’m really, really excited for people to hear it.”

Well, there you have it — Corey thinks they can pull it off. What do you think? Before the pandemic, I would’ve said that this felt overly ambitious; now, in this crazy apocalypse we all live in, I don’t even know.
