Slipknot Won't Start Work On New Album Until 2013
Although Slipknot percussionist Shawn Crahan is guaranteeing that his band will be working on a new album, he also said that fans are going to have to wait a while. Crahan spoke to Kerrang! magazine in advance of Slipknot's upcoming tours Australia later this month and a summer U.S. trek that ends in August. "After that, we'll probably take some time off," he said. "It could be a month, it could be a couple of months, maybe even a year... After that time, I'll be over the immediate grieving process for Paul [Gray, the band's bassist who died in 2010]. I'll never be alright with it, but that's going to be enough time to get focused." Regarding the possible sound of the new album, Crahan compared it to 2001's "Iowa". "The next album, it's going to be serious. I feel that it will be a lot like 'Iowa', but it'll be 'for' things, rather than 'against' them," he said, Iowa was against everything, even ourselves. But this next record, this will be for ourselves, for Paul, for his family." Thanks for the report to Bryan Wawzenek, Gibson.com.
