Slipknot’s M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan was recently interviewed on Jamey Jasta’s (Hatebreed) “The Jasta Show.” During the chat, he talked a bit about the band’s next album, and mentioned that he “feel[s] like this could be it for [him].”
Clown said the following:
“I just spent four months thinking about my life and where I’m at now because I’m at a real honest place of admitting of what I don’t want to be.
“A lot of it is bringing all this emotion to art and music. And honestly, this music that we’re writing writing right now is just like the proof of looking inward and being able to put the first foot down and say, ‘We’re gonna do something for ourselves and write.’
“So we’ve been writing and this music is coming out… I feel weird things are coming but it’s always like that for the guys like us, we get involved in our records and sky all of the sudden changes.
“And we got some stuff man. I feel like this could be it for me. We’re all getting older. I never like telling anyone like, ‘Hey this is it!’ Because I don’t have to, fuck everyone.
“But like I’ve said, I’ve been reflecting and there’s a lot of hard things that I could say about friends, brothers… We’re good, but it’s a big world. I’ve done enough work, I’ve produced and done remixes and art and performed, I’ve done enough where while I was in it none of it was registered.”
Clown previously said Slipknot have “over 27 ideas ready to go – seven or eight of them are full songs.” However, new material is not expected anytime soon, due to Corey Taylor’s commitments to Stone Sour.
