Although Slipknot percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan recently said that there were as many as 30 new pieces of music written for the band’s next album, singer Corey Taylor — currently out touring with his other group Stone Sour — says he’s heard about as many of them as you have. Taylor explained to Loudwire, “I haven’t even heard any of this stuff. In true Slipknot fashion, I’m being told through the press that this is all going on. So it is what it is. I can guarantee you that it’s very creative, I can guarantee you that it’s dark. I can guarantee you that it’s going to be unlike anything I’ve ever heard before.” Taylor said that Stone Sour will be touring for another 18 months behind its sixth album, Hydrograd, which came out last June and features the chart-topping single “Song #3.”
