M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan Says Slipknot Are “Hoping” To Finish Their New Album “By The End Of July”

During a recent interview with Minneapolis’ 93X, M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan further discussed Slipknot’s upcoming album. The percussionist says the band are “hoping to be done [with the record] by the end of July.”

Clown said the following:

“I believe that this album is… It’s God music, man. It’s the center of the beast for me. This is a whole other element.

We as a band have been trying to facilitate certain ideas in recording and songwriting. Songwriting isn’t always just giving our fans ‘Psychosocial’s and ‘Surfacing’s — without saying it, sometimes we can write those songs in our sleep; it’s so in us. It’s what we don’t know and what we don’t know how to pull out is what is the love for humanity. I wanna make a difference.

I don’t do a lot of charity because I believe what I’m doing onstage is my charity. It’s bringing everyone together for a night.

I just think what we’re doing now is really… There’s a lot of things going on. One, we’re getting off our label [after the release of new LP]. And I feel free. It’s got nothing to do with what’s next. It’s just got to do with, ‘Get the hell away from me.'”

He went on to say that the effort will “hopefully” be released this year. He also added:

“We still have a lot of time to complete this. We’re hoping to be done by the end of July.”
