Corey Taylor's new Slipknot mask is the stuff of nightmares. During a recent appearance on Steve-O’s Wild Ride! he said, “My new mask is gonna f**king scare kids! It’s so gnarly, dude. It’s really uncomfortable; it freaked my wife out. She won’t look at it – and she loves crazy sh** like that . . .”
The band members are updating their masks to go along with their new material. Corey said, “With every album, we try to give people something different. We give them the Slipknot stuff that they expect, but we also whip some different stuff up. We’re constantly trying to push the boundaries of where we go, music-wise, and I think because of that people have gotten to the point where they never know what to expect with our album. They know they’re gonna get new masks, they know they’re gonna get new outfits, they know they’re gonna get new art… but they never know, musically, where we’re gonna go – which is rad, man!”
Slipknot's last studio album, We Are Not Your Kind, was released in 2019.
