During a recent interview with Billboard, Corey Taylor offered an update on the new Slipknot album. He says he has written lyrics for almost all the music his bandmates have sent him and that they are hoping to release the effort in 2019.
Here’s Taylor’s full statement:
“The guys are writing tons of music and I’ve written lyrics to almost all of it and we’re going to start trying to put together demos here and there with the time off that I have and really try to get ahead of the curve as far as what happens next. I know that we’re gonna try and put an album out next year — however, that is all speculation.
The best way to make God laugh is to announce your plans out loud. So I’m just going with the flow. The plan right now is next year but that is a huge plan because we still haven’t narrowed anything down, so we will definitely see what happens.”
