M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan Talks 20th Anniversary Of Slipknot’s Debut Album & New Album

Slipknot’s M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan was recently interviewed by Lazer 103.3 and he said the group are “putting together a little something something for the 20th anniversary” of their debut album. He also talked a bit about their new album and said they “did things a little bit different this time off.”

Here’s what Clown had to say about the 20th anniversary:

“Basically, we’re celebrating 20 years of the first album and we thought it would be cool to make some art on many different levels for the planet. We’ve been gone long enough and I think it’s time people understand what’s really happening, so we’re putting together a little something something for the 20th anniversary. I can’t go into it too much, but every luxury has a price, so for those who make the journey, I guess those who are the ones who understand.”

Here’s what he had to say about the new album:

“I’ll let the world know this: I get reprimanded a lot for my mouth just for how much I want to deliver because I really don’t care, but I’ll tell you this: A, we’ve been home for two years. B, do your research and figure out how long we really stay home and C, staying home gets boring, so you’ve got to do things. I would imagine that there’s material that’s not only out there, but it’s finished. We did things a little bit different this time off. We made sure we made ourselves happy and making ourselves happy is we live for the song, we live for the stage, we live for the fans, we live for the art, but if it’s going to be a time we can create art, record songs, write songs, jam songs, we do it. So, we’ve learned we’re obsessed with that process. We love chasing vision and art until it’s complete. It takes time. We did ourselves a solid this time around and made sure the whole time off we could create and that’s what we did. It’s been awesome, and I think everybody is going to understand just how wonderful it has been the last two years to take the time off and create.”
