In the past days, Shawn “Clown” Craham has announced that they will start working on the new album. Jim Root and Clown will meet to write new songs. From these explanations, we thought Slipknot would record a new album. But it was not exactly like that.
On Twitter, Corey Taylor said the band will not enter the studio in the next 2 years. He said:
“Not really. That just means they’re gonna start writing music. We won’t go in the studio for 2 years.”
