Corey Taylor Confirms Slipknot Are Recording New Album In January
Plenty of people have been wondering when Slipknot will begin recording a follow-up to 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter. Now, Corey Taylor, the band’s singer, has confirmed via Twitter that the band will enter the studio in January.
In a response to a fan claiming that the band would hit the studio in 2020, Corey tweeted the following:
This isn’t the first time Corey has hinted that the band are getting ready to record something extreme. In our recent sit-down with the singer as part of our In Conversation With… series, he said that the new album would be “Iowa-levels heavy.”

If Corey’s tweet is to be believed, we’ll find out whether or not he’s true to his word soon enough. For now, you’ll have to sate your appetite with the band’s latest single, All Out Life, below:
