Slipknot’s New Record is “98 Percent Done”


The week before news broke that original Slipknot member Joey Jordison had left the band (or was fired, we never really got a true answer to what happened), guitarist Jim Root has posted a picture of himself int he studio with the simple hashtag, #slipknot2014.

Now, frontman Corey Taylor is confirming what had already been said previously; that a new album is in the works. The thing that make this different is that during an interview with Loudwire, Taylor confirmed that the new record is “98 percent done.” In the same interview, he teased that there will be “big things to hear soon.”

How soon, that we are not sure of.

Read an excerpt from the interview below or you can head on over to Loudwire and check out the full interview where you can read about what’s the difference between touring with Stone Sour opposed to Slipknot, how crazy thee Slipknot fanbase are and of course about the new record.

Corey, tell us about the progress and where things are at with the new Slipknot album.

The album is done. Oh yes. I’d say 98 percent done. I’m in the process of heading to the studio to give a listen, see if there’s anything we need to touch up. But yeah, it is very close. The next step is the mix, and we’re going to try to get it out very soon. There will be big announcements soon. Big things to hear, soon. That’s really all I can say about it. I know we’re anything, if not diligent to our plan. The plan is to just slowly but surely get people to lose their minds for the next couple of months with just little stuff here and there leaked.

Slipknot’s last album was 2008’s All Hope Is Gone which was recorded before the untimely death of Paul Gray and of course well before Jordison’s departure.
