Corey Taylor Working On New Project With Wife Alicia
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor is working with his wife Alicia on a new secret project.
Alicia revealed the couple’s plans on Twitter last night, tweeting: “CT and I have been working on a completely new project together (like we need another hobby) and I CAN’T WAIT to share it with you!”
There’s no word yet on what the project with entail, whether it’s musical or something completely different.
Alicia is a part of alternative, fire-breathing dance troupe Cherry Bombs, who have previously performed at Knotfest and supported Corey on last year’s solo tour.
Corey has been trying his hand at a number of projects as of late. Away from the Slipknot machine, the Great Big Mouth is working on a new horror movie with Tom Savini and has started work on a new book. He’s also been hard at work on his upcoming solo album.
“I’ve got about 26 songs written for it,” he told Kerrang! last year. “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.”

Slipknot were recently forced to cancel their upcoming Asian tour and Knotfest Japan festival due to the coronavirus outbreak.
“In light of global health concerns, Slipknot have decided to postpone their upcoming Asian tour, including Knotfest Japan,” the band said in a statement.
“While decisions like this are not easy, the safety and wellbeing of the band’s fans always comes first. Furthermore in this case, the bands and artists, crew and local employees are also equally affected, and as such, this was the only responsible decision that could be made.
“Slipknot and Knotfest will both return to Asia very soon, and at such time that everyone can be ensured of the best experience possible.”
