It seems that 2019 should probably be renamed “The Year of the Maggot” because Slipknot are coming out in full force.
The band set the world afire by announcing that they are headed into the studio in the early part of the year to record a new album, but it seems that some of the guys have been sitting on a new album for some time.
Clown tells Metal Hammer:
“Is it Slipknot? No, it’s not Slipknot. Is it four members of Slipknot? Yes. It’s four members of Slipknot. Is it music being written at the same time as All Hope Is Gone? Absolutely.
Well, now my ears are perked up…
“There’s a big collection of music, it’s fucking really amazing. It’s so amazing it had to be held back to wait for the right time, it’s been 10 years. It wasn’t going to be one of those things to loosely go out and confuse everyone, and piss everyone off.
“I’m not going to put music out to spite people – we do things the right way in this camp. The right way is that sooner or later, people need to be made aware of it because it’s the truth. It happened. We spent time doing it, we worked it every day, we mixed it, we mastered it, there’s artwork. It’s amazing stuff. But it’s all got to be right in the story of Slipknot.”
On top of announcing a new album next year, Slipknot dropped a new song on Halloween titled “All Out Life”. Here’s the video!
