SLIPKNOT So Serious About Writing New Music That Guitarist Jim Root Is Sitting Out The Next STONE SOUR Tour

There might not be a timetable for the release of the next Slipknot record, but it's definitely happening.  It seems the band is kicking "writing mode" into high gear, so much so that guitarist Jim Root had to abstain from his other commitment, touring with Stone Stour in January.

The band posted this statement with the announcement of Jim's absence from touring:

"Everyone involved is okay with the decision and our mutual friend Christian Martucci will be filling in on guitar.

"It was a difficult decision, but as the fans have wanted another Stone Sour tour and Jim had responsibilities to the writing process with Slipknot, we feel this is the best decision where everyone wins."

For Slipknot fans, this has to be really exciting. One of the main reasons writing was delayed this long was because Stone Sour was too busy. This means the band is getting really serious and possibly even have a timetable for release and new tours lined up down the pipe later in 2014. This is pure conjecture on my art, but for Root to sit out a tour means business is about to pick up.

Previously, the band hinted the material is very dark, a mix of Iowa and Vol. 3, and may end up being a double album.
