Corey Taylor on Slipknot album
The next Slipknot album won't go into production for at least two years, says frontman Corey Taylor.
He's responded to speculation after bandmate Shawn "Clown" Crahan revealed that he and Jim Root were planning to start writing for the follow-up to .5: The Gray Chapter in February.
Last year Clown suggested that the band's sixth full-length release might arrive in 2017.
Asked about whether the latest development means an album is coming soon, Taylor tweets: "Not really. That just means they're gonna start writing music. We won?t go in the studio for two years."
