Speaking to Billboard, Corey Taylor shared some insight as to when fans can expect a new Slipknot album.
“The guys are writing tons of music and I’ve written lyrics to almost all of it,” Taylor began, “and we’re going to start trying to put together demos here and there with the time off that I have and really try to get ahead of the curve as far as what happens next.
He continued adding:
“I know that we’re gonna try and put an album out next year – however, that is all speculation. The best way to make God laugh is to announce your plans out loud. So I’m just going with the flow.”
“The plan right now is next year but that is a huge plan because we still haven’t narrowed anything down, so we will definitely see what happens.”
Slipknot’s next release will serve as their first follow up to 2014’s ‘Chapter 5: The Gray Chapter.’
