As various statements from members of Slipknot
seemed to confirm a definite 2014 comeback, drummer Joey Jordison
now expressed uncertainty over the entire matter due to touring plans with his new band Scar the Martyr
While chatting with Metal Insider
, Jordison stressed his intentions of taking his new project out on the road for at least a year following the October 1 release of self-titled debut record.
When asked to explain what does 2014 mean for both Slipknot and Scar the Martyr, Joey commented: "Well, honestly, with all the he-said-she-said crap that goes on in the internet world or interviews or anything like that, I mean, it's been well known that the 'Scar the Martyr' record is now coming out October 1 and I'm going to be on tour for at least a year if not more with that band. That's my plan."
The drummer still gave somewhat of a reassurance to Slipknot fans, saying, "We’ll still do Slipknot shows here and there, but as far as a Slipknot record, we're all just working on material. There is going to be another Slipknot record, I promise. It's just that timing factor, you know? We all have other things that we're doing right now."
The interviewer followed up by asking whether there's a definite time plan for Slipknot, just to have Joey answer "No, no there's not."
Jordison also touched on his Murderdolls stint, saying that although he respects the band's work, they're simply not pushing any boundaries and are not a place where his "heart lies in music.""Not saying anything really negative against the Murderdolls, but, it’s not like we were pushing any boundaries or anything like that,"
he said. "Not knocking the Murderdolls, because it was awesome and I loved that band, but it ran its course, you know? I wanted to get back to doing more music that pushed boundaries more, took more involvement and that was more constructive."
It now seems that 2015 might be the Slipknot year after all. Let us know what you think in the comments.
