Slipknot made a surprise appearance at the Revolver Golden Gods last week, and during the proceedings Clown walked the black carpet. How the hell did I miss Clown?! Anyway, he gave some hints as to when we can expect Slipknot to return.
Corey Taylor has said previously that we shouldn't expect anything new from Slipknot, other than a few summer festivals they have lined up, until 2015, but Clown seems to think you'll be hearing from the band sooner.
Loudwire caught up with the percussionist and he said this:
“Slipknot 2014. You can smell it in the air and people can feel it. The energy is out there and you can feel it. People go places we once were and feel it there, but not in full body, and that’s just because we’re returning. You can ask anyone around the world what the culture of the ‘Knot is, who truly knows, and they will tell you that something has changed in the atmosphere.
We’re coming back full force and I haven’t been so excited for a very long time,” says Clown. “I mean, we just got off a tour last summer and it’s only been eight months, but I feel like we’ve got six shows this summer and then after that, everyone is just going to chill a little bit. It’s on. It feels f—ing good.”
So I think he's saying the band will be touring next year? It's really hard to comprehend sometimes. If you are an expect at Clown translation, feel free to chime in below in the comments. Loudwire pressed Clown asking about all the members' side projects and if they will interfere with the band's return and he was quick to respond:
"Hey, everybody in the band’s got their thing man. I won’t tell you who, where, why, what, when, but 2014 [is Slipknot]."
Let's hope he's right.
