Shawn "Clown" Crahan of Slipknot unveiled new details regarding the band's massively anticipated studio entrance, further pinpointing the date and expressing a positive attitude. "Went out on the lake today for awhile to try to get some negativity out of the brain," Clown casually kicked off via Facebook. "All these birds were flying off the water over my head. So peaceful and beautiful." The percussionist then steadily reached the topic of music, pumping up the fans' expectations. "The new mask is coming out killer for all those who are getting one," he noted. "You'll be getting a lot of goodies. I'm writing the best music of my life. I can't wait to put it up on my page just so all of you can see who else I am, but as usual only if you care." After confirming that the new website is scheduled for launch in the near future and sharing his excitement over upcoming shows in South America and Mexico City, Crahan finally discussed studio plans. "We'll get settled in to a studio sometime in January or so and starting cutting out the pain," he said. "I got an artist studio where there will be lots if photo stuff but also a very cool recording studio. I'm going through all my stuff and getting rid of some serious stuff. Check my site to see. I have to write, record and play live with new art all around us. End of story. Amen" Following drummer Joey Jordison's uncertainty over Slipknot's 2014 comeback plans, Clown's announcement dropped as just the kind of info fans were yearning to hear.
