Slipknot has been in the studio knocking out a new album over the past year. According to vocalist Corey Taylor in an interview with The Eddie Trunk Podcast, the band is just about finished and only needs to track a few more songs. Taylor then goes on to reveal Slipknot will release a new single "in the next month or so" prior to announcing the record.
"Actually, it's pretty much done. I'd say it's probably about eighty percent done. We're finishing up some music, [and] I've got a couple more songs to sing. However, I will say this – don't be surprised if in the next month or so you hear something new."
When asked what the single will sound like, Taylor said it's "more of a 'let's bludgeon everybody and remind them why we're still Slipknot' kind of vibe." Taylor added the single will be a part of the new album, and will "remind people why they love Slipknot."
Taylor previously also chimed in about the new material, saying the new stuff has "made me start thinking outside my own box and challenging myself." The new album will be Slipknot's final effort for Roadrunner, and the band is hoping to have it out by the end of the year.
