Slipknot to take ‘a couple of years off again’

Posted by on June 22, 2015

It was six years since All Hope Is Gone when .5: The Gray Chapter came out, notably because of the passing of Slipknot bassist Paul Gray back in 2010. So if you love Slipknot, you better be sure that you catch them during their current tour or you might not see them again for awhile. In a recent interview with RockSverige.se, vocalist Corey Taylor said the band will be taking some time off after their current album cycle.

Said Taylor:

“We’re gonna finish touring and then we’re gonna take a couple of years off again to, kind of, let everything chill. I’m gonna go do my thing, [and] everybody else’s gonna go, kind of, do their thing. I know Clown’s [percussion] got movies that he wants to make, which is very cool. He just wrapped his first feature a couple of months ago, which I’m pretty stoked for him about. So everybody is gonna, kind of, do their thing, and then, in a couple of years, we’ll get back together and see what happens again. Kind of what we used to do… Before we lost [SLIPKNOT bassist] Paul [Gray], that’s what we would do: we would go [pursue other projects] for a while and then we would get back together after a couple of years and say, like, ‘All right. What have we got now?’ So I think that’s what we’re gonna do.”

As of right right now, after a four-date run through South America, Slipknot’s last US date is the Aftershock Festival in late October, so make sure you see them while you still can.  If you can’t see them live, watch their recent music video for “Killpop” which came out earlier this month.
