Ex-Slipknot Drummer Joey Jordison Says He Has A “Ton” Of Unreleased Demos For The Band

During a recent interview with Metal Hammer, former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison revealed that he still has a “ton” of unreleased demos for the band. He went on to say that they may or may not ever be heard and that he does not plan to use them for any of his other bands.

Jordison said the following:

“I have a ton of Slipknot demos that I have at home. Maybe some day they’ll surface, maybe they’ll never be heard, but I don’t translate them to any other band, they still stay in the Slipknot safe. I won’t use them for anyone else besides Slipknot, if that ever happens again.”

He also added the following when asked if he still writes material in the style of Slipknot:

“It depends. I play guitar all the time and I’m constantly thinking of songs.

I sleep music. I wake up and there’s a riff in my head, every step I take there’s a riff, a beat, or something. That’s the way a musician is. You’re isolated in a weird way because music is haunting you as much as it’s loving you. It’s non-stop.

Every time I pick up a guitar, I come up with different riffs, all different bands I’ve been in, sometimes there is a song or riff that could only belong with Slipknot and I just can’t use it for anything else, regardless of whatever happened.

It just stays in the bank and I can’t use it for anything else, I just won’t do it.”

Slipknot Are Now Selling Replicas Of The Masks & Jumpsuits From Their “All Out Life” Music Video

Slipknot Premiere Music Video For New Song “All Out Life”

Slipknot have premiered a new video for their new song “All Out Life.” This track will appear on the band’s upcoming album, which is expected to be released in summer 2019.

Corey Taylor said the following about the song:

“‘All Out Life‘ is a song that is trying to do 2 things: bring everyone together, but also remind everyone that the past is not something to be discarded with disdain. People are so eager to find the Next Big Thing sometimes that they shit all over the bands and artists that have come before, thus making the past feel disposable, like a dirty thing. Fuck that: why should we pay attention to your mediocre future when you can’t be bothered to celebrate an amazing past? I’d rather listen to a guaranteed hit than a forced miss. ‘All Out Life‘ is the anthem that reminds people that it’s not the date on the music- it’s the staying power.”

M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan added:

“Right now is a very exciting time for Slipknot. We’ve been working on new music for the last two years, and ‘All Out Life,’ the song and the video, is just one of many concepts in the works. It’s a fitting taste to get you to the next thing. Get ready for what’s to come. We challenge you to All Out Life.”

Taylor also discussed the track further on Zane Lowe‘s Beats 1 Radio show:

“Everybody talks about toxic masculinity and toxic fandom these days. For me, it’s more about this toxic idea that unless something came out 10 minutes ago, it’s not any good, and that bothers me. It’s, like, I love new music, but at the same time, don’t turn your back on the music that’s been. Don’t turn your back on the people that worked to make a platform for you to have a platform in the first place, so for me, it’s really about… It’s a rallying cry for everyone.

It’s about all of us getting together and saying, ‘You know what? Let’s not talk about old. Let’s not talk about new. Let’s talk about what is. Let’s talk about what’s good, what’s real, and get behind that and start embracing things that matter because there’s history there and not just because it’s the next best thing.’”

He also talked a bit about the changes in the band’s new music:

“What felt different was the amount of positivity that we all had in the room, man. It feels like the last couple years, we’ve all really been able to let go of a lot of negative energy, a lot of pessimistic energy, a lot of things that we were holding onto, maybe like that negative, selfish energy, that I had, that everybody in the band had, that was keeping us from coming back together.

I’m kind of looking at the world through clearer eyes, but I’m also just now starting to make peace with the fact that there are dark pieces in my chapters that I’ve had to relinquish. I’ve had to kind of let go of and be, like, ‘Look, if it wasn’t for all of these dark things happening to me, I wouldn’t be the guy I am right now,’ and so, this has made me have to deal with the fact that I am an addict.

It made me deal with the fact that I’m in my 40s, and I’ve got kids, and I need to take care of them. It’s allowed me to get out of my own way and enjoy life. You know, and get out of my own head and enjoy the things that I have. It doesn’t mean that it’s the death of desire or anything like that, but it’s allowed me to really take advantage of the time that I have right now, and like the person who I am.”

It’s worth noting that a press release also mentioned that the band have actually been teasing the song for weeks via Touche:

“The song’s presence was first alluded to weeks ago – and regularly, since – in a digital campaign for a web app “Touche,” which featured the tagline ‘Welcome to your all out life!’ The app made no mention of Slipknot, and was a trojan horse, ultimately, set up by the band as a commentary on the public’s willingness to hand over their privacy in exchange for worthless, temporary engagement. Some fans, as expected, rooted out the band’s involvement and took to chat rooms and forums to compare notes and revel in the campaign.”

Slipknot’s Corey Taylor: “I Think We’ve Written Our Heaviest Song – One Of Them Anyway – On This New Album”

During a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Corey Taylor further discussed the new Slipknot album. According to him, the effort may even include one of their heaviest songs to date.

Taylor said the following:

“The way we’ve been describing it is, ‘What if the guys who made ‘Iowa‘ matured? What if the kids who made ‘Iowa‘ grew up?’ That’s kind of the way we’re looking at it because some of this shit is so heavy – but there’s melody, there’s really cool melancholic melody going on.”

“Some of this shit is just so hard and dirty fast. It’s fucking really good. It’s also us at our most ambitious, our most experimental, also us doing what we fucking do best which is basically when everybody thinks they’ve got us figured out, we just smack them in the face with everything we’ve got.”

He later added:

“At a time when most bands are slowing down, I think we’ve written our heaviest song – one of them anyway – on this new album. It’s going to be fucking crazy. People are going to shit their pants when they hear it.”

The group have already demoed 20 tracks for the album and a summer 2019 release is expected.
