SLIPKNOT DJ Sid Wilson recently told NME that the band is planning to enter the studio next year to begin recording a new album, which will be their first since 2008’s “All Hope Is Gone” and their first recording without bassist Paul Gray, who died almost exactly two years ago.
Asked about the possibility of a new album, Wilson replied:
We’ve got Mayhem Festival this summer and, after we break for winter and Stone Sour are done with their tour, we’ll be back in the kitchen with Slipknot. Actually before Stone Sour finish touring we’ll be in the studio preparing for Corey’s return, keeping the irons hot.
He was also asked how he was feeling about the prospect of recording again, and his response was,
It’ll be tough, it won’t be easy, Slipknot’s the biggest thing in all of our lives, but we’re always going to come back to it. We’re going to get it done. I’m excited and I’m ready to do it.
I’m sick of hearing people talk, it’s time for action. When we come together, it’s badass; we need to harness that energy of the live shows. When we come together like we always do, it’s going to be brutal.
