Slipknot’s M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan was on Minnesota’s radio station 93X and revealed the band is aiming to wrap up their new album by the end July. When speaking about the album, Clown also mentioned that this will be the band’s last record with their longtime label Roadrunner.
“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.'”
When speaking about the release date, he added:
“We still have a lot of time to complete this. We’re hoping to be done by the end of July.”
