Slipknot's Corey Taylor has said that if he doesn't feel the band's summer tour works out the way he wants it to then the band may well be over.

The singer was responding to comments made by drummer Joey Jordison, who said last week: "Slipknot will always exist – with Corey or without him. That's it."

Speaking in an interview with Michigan radio station WGRD Radio, Taylor said: "I’m not going to spoonfeed false hope to the fans: if this tour doesn’t work, the band might be over."



Taylor described the tour as "a baby-step" toward the band's future without bassist Paul Gray, who died in May last year. "I’m telling people how it is," he added. "Until things make sense for me I’m not going to be a cheerleader – the fans would see through it, and I’d feel terrible being that guy."

Jordison, who was speaking at Revolver Magazine's Golden Gods Awards on April 20, said: "As far as I’m concerned, Slipknot’s my baby and I have a bunch of songs written. I’m in rehearsal right now with the guys and it’s completely on fire."

He added: "Honestly, these are going to be some of the most amazing shows we’ve ever done. And I think certain people will wise up after that."

Slipknot headline Sonisphere Festival at Knebworth Park this July.
