Slipknot plans new album
(loudwire) In late August, Slipknot percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan announced that the band would tour the U.S. in 2012, but the entire band has been noncommittal about whether or not they’ll ever release another studio album – until now.
In a new interview with British magazine Kerrang!, Crahan confirms that Slipknot will, indeed, record a follow-up to 2008’s ‘All Hope Is Gone,’ but he added that it won’t happen right away.
"There’s plans [to make another record] but that’s a way off," Crahan said. "No one will push it, because it’s going to be a big one. It’ll be closer to ‘Iowa’, but it’ll be sadder and crazier and really thought provoking, it could even be conceptual."
