Slipknot's Corey Taylor confirms that the band is working on the followup to 2019's We Are Not Your Kind album. He said that the other members started working on new music and sent it on to him, telling Des Moines radio station Lazer 103.3, “That made me start thinking outside my own box and challenging myself. And it was cool, 'cause I got excited again about exploring some different stuff and not just being so driven in my own thing but thinking outside, trying to tell other people's stories again. And that's kind of where I'm going with this new Slipknot album — trying to tell other people's stories and not just my own. And it's feeling pretty rad, man. I can't wait for people to hear it.”
Taylor also touched on the subject of the band's ever-evolving masks and what fans can expect to see on the next tour saying, “I can tell you that the mask I'm working on is very disturbing. It's gonna be hard to look at. And it'll probably be my favorite mask that I've ever put together. It's little bits and pieces of things that have intrigued me, of masks that I've had in the past. And it's gonna have a devil-may-care kind of terror to it, let's put it that way.”
Fans will be able to check out Corey's new mask when Slipknot plays their Knotfest concert in their home state of Iowa on September 25th at the National Balloon Classic Field in Indianola.
