Corey Taylor: ‘I’m still on the fence about doing a new Slipknot album’ – video

Singer says he's 'feeling better' about the idea though

Corey Taylor has said he is “still on the fence” about the idea of recording a new Slipknot album.

Taylor has been skeptical over the past year about the possibility of the Iowa metallers recording a fifth studio album without bassist Paul Gray, who passed away last year. The singer was speaking during an online reading and webchat to promote his new book Seven Deadly Sins and said he was “feeling better” about the idea of recording again.

Asked how he felt about making a new Slipknot album, he replied: “I feel better about it, but I’m still kind of on the fence. We’re taking baby steps and we’re going to take our time.”

The frontman added that he really enjoyed the band’s headline set at Sonisphere and thanked everyone who participated in the two minute silence for Gray.

He said: “I did enjoy the show, the whole tour has been great, thank you to everyone who came and everyone who participated in the two minutes of silence for Pauly, he would have been so proud.”
