While Corey Taylor focuses on Stone Sour’s new album, the rest of the Slipknot guys are already working towards their next record. In a new interview with WRIF’s Meltdown, Clown had this to say on the current status of the band: “Well, we’re writing as a band and with Corey as well. Yes, we’re off, and we’re off for a long while. It’s much needed as we’d been touring for three years. Corey’s doing what he does which is Stone Sour, which is awesome, and we’re writing. We’re beginning to write some music for Slipknot for the new record. He’s aware of it, so while we’re writing, he’s getting songs. We’re not just gonna sit around because we’ve done that for 20 years – we just feel like writing. We had so much fun writing .5: The Gray Chapter, and people that started writing together during this album cycle never wrote together in 15 years, so things are a little bit different, and it’s amazing and it’s fun. We have a lot of stuff already that we wrote out on the road for the last three years. We have songs that we’ve written that are amazing.”
