Although he’s still on the road with Stone Sour, singer Corey Taylor said that he has already begun working on lyrics for Slipknot’s next album, adding that the material will see him at his “most autobiographical” that he has “been in years.” Taylor’s latest comments come six months after Slipknot percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan revealed that the band had “about 27 pieces of work” written for follow-up to 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter. Asked by Musik Universe if he has heard any of the music Crahan has been composing with the other instrumental members of Slipknot, Taylor replied, “Yeah, I have. It’s awesome. That’s all I’m gonna say about it.” The singer said that the new Slipknot LP will “absolutely” arrive next year.
