's Jason Popson
says the band are keen to do a special mask and make-up tour with Slipknot
, Metal Hammer
His thoughts come on the back of Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor
's comments that he would be interested in bringing the artists together for a one-off tour.
Popson tells Alternativenation.net
: "I would love for that to happen - we would love to be a part of anything with them. Years ago, I met Slipknot's Sid Wilson and Paul Gray and we talked about it - we actually laughed about it. "A lot of the media has created some type of friction or feud between us and it's all misguided. We've always respected that band and I think they're phenomenal players. I would love to play with them - I would love the opportunity."
Speaking about the possible four-band tour, Slipknot's Taylor says: "It probably won't happen right away, just because Slipknot's been gone for a while, we have all these changes, and we've a new album coming out. We want to kinda take the first six or seven months and re-establish ourselves."
Slipknot are currently working on a new album which has a tentative release date of late 2014. It will be their first recording since 2008's "All Hope Is Gone
" and the first since the death of bassist and founding member Paul Gray in 2010.
