keeping a low profile over the past few years, drummer Joey Jordison
was left with more spare time to dedicate to his personal music projects. One of such projects is now taking shape featuring Jed Simon
of Strapping Young Lad
and Darkest Hour
guitarist Kris Norris
Without revealing too many details, Jordison has posted several studio session photos, with additional information yet to come. The news is so far met with nothing but unanimous praise from the fans eager to hear some new material.
As far as the new Slipknot record goes, it is still uncertain when will the band finally regroup in the studio or start working on the 2008's "All Hope is Gone"
follow-up. Judging by the recent comments from singer Corey Taylor
, new record is about "two years away."
Speaking of Taylor, the frontman has recently confirmed he will be hosting an exclusive Reddit AMA
. Set to take place on April 25 at 5 p.m. ET, the Corey Taylor edition of the popular Q&A series will feature the vocalist answering questions regarding his latest work with Stone Sour
, Dave Grohl collaboration
or any other topic that might come along.
