Joey Jordison seemingly can't shutup about Slipknot. Not that we are complaining or anything. After the death of bassist Paul Gray, Jordison was the first to confirm that there would be a new Slipknot album in 2012. Now, in a recent interview with Billboard magazine, Joey revealed that the band has already begun writing a new record saying:
"It's already in motion. It's definitely exciting. It's a little emotional, of course, but I think it's going to be really, really cool and I think it's gonna be a really, really great record because everyone's really involved in the process."
Woah. They have quite the head start on a rumored Summer 2012 release. Could the album be coming out sonner than expected?
Joey also revealed the band's planned stage setup now that Gray is gone with Billboard reporting:
Jordison says Slipknot will remain an octet, with no replacement for Gray. On stage, however, "we'll have a bass player that's right next to me, to the right behind the stage, to lock in with me. But there's no one right now who will go on stage."
