Slipknot have been a busy band lately, releasing their crazy new track 'All Out Life' while they prepare for the release of their new album and subsequent touring plans in 2019. Now, in a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Clown has said that Corey Taylor, guitarist Jim Root, DJ Sid Wilson and himself recorded a bunch of other material at the same time as their 2008 album All Hope Is Gone, and we could be hearing it pretty soon! According to Clown, he was set up in another studio making different music during the recording sessions. One of these songs 'Til We Die' featured on the digipak release of All Hope Is Gone, but we haven't heard anything else yet.
"There’s a collection of songs that were recorded, 11 I think, I’ve held on to them for 10 years because it hasn’t been right, and I’m going to let you know now that it’s feeling right. Is it Slipknot? No, it’s not Slipknot. Is it four members of Slipknot? Yes. It’s four members of Slipknot. Is it music being written at the same time as All Hope Is Gone? Absolutely.”
"There’s a big collection of music, it’s fucking really amazing. It’s so amazing it had to be held back to wait for the right time, it’s been 10 years. It wasn’t going to be one of those things to loosely go out and confuse everyone, and piss everyone off. I’m not going to put music out to spite people – we do things the right way in this camp. The right way is that sooner or later, people need to be made aware of it because it’s the truth. It happened. We spent time doing it, we worked it every day, we mixed it, we mastered it, there’s artwork. It’s amazing stuff. But it’s all got to be right in the story of Slipknot.”
Who knows what it sounds like or when we'll get it? It's always pretty exciting to have anything new from the world of Slipknot's members though, so colour us interested!
