Slipknot Drop New Album Hints at Download Festival
Slipknot have dropped some big hints that they really will release a new album, despite concerns that they'll never record another LP without late bassist Paul Gray. Their last studio album was "All Hope Is Gone" in 2008. Gray died shortly after, putting the band's future plans at a standstill. During their performance at the Download Festival in the UK at the weekend, frontman Corey Taylor said: "Don't be surprised if you see us again real soon," and promised fans can "look forward to special f--king things in the future," according to NME. Speaking about their late bassist during the show, Taylor said: "We were last on this stage four years ago. This band has been through a lot in those four years. Because of the respect for each other, we've kept going, we've kept going for us, we've kept going for you and we've kept going for him [Gray]." The crowd broke the barricade twice during their Download set, forcing the band to stop their performance each time. Backstage, Slipknot percussionist Shawn Crahan shared a controversial view about performing live. "I don't give a f--k about playing for the fans, myself the stage any of it," he told Kerrang in the interview below. "All I care about is playing with my brothers. I hear the f--king guitar, I hear the drum fills, I hear the vocals... I'm f--king happy. This is what I signed up for."
