Last year, Joey Jordison locked himself in the studio and began writing new material and eventually came out of the studio with 40 songs written. With the Slipknot machine not starting back up again any time soon, Joey decided to form a new band which we went into detail about recently.
Today, Joey has new comments about the band and how it came together.
In a new interview with Metal Hammer magazine, and revealed that the band was formed out of necessity after all the music he had written:
“I’d been working on new Slipknot material since the end of the All Hope Is Gone tour cycle but I ended up with so much stuff I had to take a step back and stop working on it,” he explains. “The time wasn’t right. But I came up with a bunch of material that was really killer and heavy and started taking some of it in a different direction. I started focusing on a lot of the post-punk and industrial stuff that I’ve always loved and started putting super heavy and brutal guitars over the top of it. That’s how it started. It’s taken me a couple of years to get to this point, but I can honestly say this is the most satisfied I’ve ever been in the studio. I can’t wait for everyone to hear this shit.”
“I’ve done the bulk of the work in the studio but now I’ve got Jed [Simon, Strapping Young Lad] and Kris [Norris, Darkest Hour] to play lead guitar on everything,” he adds. “Chris [Vrenna, Nine Inch Nails] is doing the keyboards and synths and all that stuff and I have an unknown guy on vocals. His name’s Henry and he’s super talented and a great vocalist. I didn’t want someone from a known band singing in this band, because then it just becomes some supergroup thing and that’s not what this is.”
Personally, I am really intrigued to hear what comes about from this, are you?
