We are having this conversation three years before I thought we would. According to Billboard.com Slipknot is preparing to enter the studio in early 2011 to record their follow up to 2008’s All Hope Is Gone. This is a shock because of the sudden death of founding bassist Paul Grey in May 2010. I thought we would get another new Stone Sour album before a new Slipknot album but that will not be the case. Drummer Joey Jordison gives us some details on what Slipknot is going to be. The band is currently creating demos for material and hope to spend the first half of 2011 in studio. The band will be only 8 members and there are no plans to replace Grey. The band will tour with a bassist that will be off stage similar to what Korn has done with rhythm guitarists.
With Stone Sour, Murderdolls, Syd Wilson’s solo album, and the Black Dots of Death, I just assumed that the members of Slipknot would be busy but apparently they want to get back and make some metal. I am excited and anxious for the new music to start flowing
