Corey Taylor feels slightly better about the future of SLIPKNOT

If you've been following all the Slipknot drama since Paul Gray passed, you know that Corey Taylor has been adamant about saying he would first play all the European summer shows the band booked and then ultimately decide if he would continue doing Slipknot or not. Well, the shows have passed and naturally somebody asked him how he felt after performing with the band again. Here is what he had to say at a recent signing for his new book:

"I will say that I am completely open to doing some more touring, but there's a lot of healing [that needs to happen first]," he said.

He added, "First of all, thank you very much for this last tour. That tour was one of the hardest things we've ever had to do, and the amount of respect that you guys showed us, I will never fucking forget it, so thank you so much for it.

"As for the immediate future, we've already talked about maybe doing some touring and what-not. I'm still kind of on the fence about how I feel about making a new album right away. That doesn't mean that I won't be open to it maybe in a couple of years. I mean, it's still fresh for me. And I know I've caught some shit in the press or from some people because I may come off as negative. I'm not being negative — I'm being real. I lost my brother and it doesn't fucking compute to me yet making an album without him, and until I can kind of fucking wrap my head around that, then it will make sense and then we will make another album. So I'm feeling better about the future of SLIPKNOT. We'll just have to wait and fucking see. I will do my very best."

So basically, he is cool with still playing with the band, but feels a little iffy about recording just yet. This is obviously very positive news for Slipknot fans, and if I were a betting man, I'd wager we will see new music from the band within the next 3 or 4 years. [ via Blabbermouth ]
