COREY TAYLOR Says New SLIPKNOT Album Has Title, Artwork And Is A “Heavier Version Of ‘Vol. 3′”

The follow-up to Slipknot's "We Are Not Your Kind" was recorded in 2021 with producer Joe Barresi.

SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor says that we can expect the band’s new studio album within the next three months.

The follow-up to 2019’s “We Are Not Your Kind” was recorded in 2021 with producer Joe Barresi. Last November, SLIPKNOT released the new single called “The Chapeltown Rag” which gave fans a small sample of what we can expect on the upcoming record.

Corey recently appeared on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk” where he revealed a possible timetable for the new SLIPKNOT album plus some details on the effort’s development . He said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “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 [before it is released]. 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.”

Corey also touched on the musical direction of the new SLIPKNOT material, saying: “It’s really killer, man. It’s darker than ‘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 ‘Vol. 3[: (The Subliminal Verses)]’. 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.”

Last month, SLIPKNOT announced the 2022 edition of their infamous “Knotfest Roadshow” tour. The run will take place over two legs – with the first featuring special guests IN THIS MOMENT and JINJER while the second collection of dates will feature special guests CYPRESS HILL and HO99O9.
