Corey Taylor Says The New Slipknot Record Is Coming In 2019

Get excited Slipknot fans! In a new interview with Musik Universe, Corey Taylor discussed the band’s new material, and when fans can expect it. Here’s what he had to say on the new music, “It’s impressive, that’s all I’m going to say about that. That’s all I would have wanted it to be. They send me stuff here and there and it’s funny because they tell me they do not want to send me anything until it’s over, so I’m patient and for now I’m have received 6 songs and they are really very good. They’re like that in demos and by demo I mean they’re probably longer than they’ll be at the end, because the goal is to extrapolate an idea as much as possible to cover all the possibilities. Then you have to work on them and turn them into something solid and fluid, and that’s where they are now. I am currently writing the lyrics for 3 of them and it’s dark, very dark. It’s actually, probably the most autobiographical lyrics I’ve written in years. I’ve been through a lot of obstacles in recent years and I’m writing about where I am now instead of writing about where I was. It’s very easy to go back to those things, impulsively, but now I’m writing from the point of view of a man who has grown up and seen a lot. I try to understand things.

On when fans can expect the new record, he answered “Next year. By 2019, we should finish writing, enter the studio and be ready to go back on the road.
