Corey Taylor Is Working On A Movie Script And Another Book
Jonathan Weiner

It's been quite the 12 months for Corey Taylor. Not only did he get married and start work on his solo record, but Slipknot went and released a new album! The 5K-rated We Are Not Your Kind reached Number One in the UK charts and has barely left the Kerrang! stereo ever since.

Oh, and they headlined Download. And took Knotfest on tour across the United States. And... well, you get the picture. So surely next year Corey is going to put his feet up and chill out a bit, right?


Alongside more touring with Slipknot (they're hitting the UK in January, setting sail on a cruise, launching the inaugural Knotfest UK, and more besides), the vocalist has even more plans of world domination.

“I’m starting to get material together for a solo album that I’m going to record in 2021," Corey tells Kerrang!. "I’ve got about 26 songs written for it. It’s going to be the best '90s album ever. That’s the only way I can really describe it. Some of it is a reflection of being sick and tired of this nutless rock’n’roll I’ve seen lately that is real soft. I like my rock’n’roll to kick me in the fucking nuts. That’s just me though, I’m a fucking dick!

"Other than that, I wrote a script for a horror movie that I’m really stoked about. And I just broke the skin on book five, so I’m working on that as well. I’ve got a lot of things going on, but I’m also making sure there’s plenty of time for my family, my marriage and home. God knows, you never know how much time you’re gonna get there."

So expect to see a lot of Corey Taylor in the near future, whether it's onstage, on screen or on paper.
