It looks like Slipknot may release a new full-length album in 2021, which will act as the follow-up to 2019’s ‘We Are Not Your Kind’.

In an interview with with Scott Bowling as part of the YouTube channel Good Company, vocalist Corey Taylor shared that the band are looking at putting out a new album “maybe next year”.

“The plan right now with Slipknot is to try and a) finish up the touring next year, and b) we’re thinking about kind of putting another album out maybe next year, but I don’t know. I don’t know what the plan is yet. I just know that we all kind of feel like there’s unfinished business and we wanna finish that out before we do anything. But I know that we were talking about doing it, ’cause we only have one album left on our contract.”

This news also comes a short while after the band’s percussionist and creative visionary M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan confirmed that they had been using some of the downtime during the pandemic to work on material.

“Since everybody’s taken a lot of time off, we thought we’d utilize it by getting together and do what we probably do best, which is write music. So it’s been good, because there’s no pressure. It’s not like we have to. We’re doing it ’cause we want to, and it’s just been a blessing, because boredom can set in. And I know all of us in the world are going crazy, so we’re really lucky to be able to be together and do what we love most.”

He spoke of this during a recent signing session for the band’s newly released whisky brand, No. 9 Iowa Whiskey, which you can watch below.
