Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor confirmed during the band’s Cincinnati show on June 1 that they will release new music very soon, but they can’t give an exact date yet.
‘We Are Not Your Kind‘ is the sixth and latest studio album of Slipknot, released on August 9, 2019. Four singles preceded the album, ‘Unsainted,’ ‘Solway Firth,’ ‘Birth of the Cruel,’ and ‘Nero Forte.’ The record generally received highly positive reviews from music critics and fans. They particularly praised the album for its well-crafted melodies and experimental style.
Because two years have passed since their latest release, Slipknot fans have been excitedly waiting for a new album to arrive. The band didn’t want to keep them waiting too long and started to work on the new record in 2021. Corey Taylor announced last March that they were mixing the new album at the time. The singer confirmed that they entirely recorded it and looked forward to sharing it with the fans, hopefully by the summer of 2022.
The group’s first single from the upcoming album, ‘The Chapeltown Rag,’ arrived on November 5, 2021. During a June 1 show at Heritage Bank Center in Cincinnati, Corey Taylor announced that they don’t have an exact date yet, but the new album will be arriving very soon. Thus, the fans won’t have to wait too long for it.
As reported, here is how Corey Taylor confirmed new Slipknot music:
“Now, we don’t have an exact date on it, but I’m here to tell you, you’re not going to be waiting very, very f*cking long. God damn it, I promise you, you will have new f*cking Slipknot music very f*cking soon.”
