.6: THE NEXT CHAP­TER

Kerrang! (UK) - - Kerrang! (uk) -

Corey’s at­ten­tion is on STONE SOUR this year, but what about SLIPKNOT? We go in­side The Nine’s fu­ture plans… When K! last caught up with a mem­ber of Slipknot aside from Corey – one Shawn ‘Clown’ Cra­han – the band’s beat­ing heart warned us: “It’s not go­ing to be easy in 2018. But I tell you what, you want to look out for Clown in 2019, be­cause you’re not go­ing to like him. You’re not go­ing to un­der­stand him…” And though Corey is very much fo­cused on his non-masked group for 2018, it looks as though the Iowa he­roes are nev­er­the­less on course for a 2019 fol­low-up to .5: The Gray Chap­ter.

The vo­cal­ist has re­vealed that he’s al­ready heard sev­eral ’Knot demos, and the mu­sic is “ev­ery­thing I wanted it to be”. The front­man has writ­ten some “re­ally dark” lyrics to three new Slipknot tracks, adding that it’s “prob­a­bly the most au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal I’ve been in years”. So a new Slipknot LP will be in the works next year, with the band set to “fin­ish writ­ing it, record it and be ready to go on the road.” Lovely stuff. More news as soon as we have it…
