Corey Taylor has said his band Slipknot are planning a tour with other masked bands, including Mudvayne and GWAR.

Slipknot are to start work on their next record following the recent departure of drummer Joey Jordison. The founder member quit the band in December, raising questions about their future, but frontman Corey Taylor subsequently denied that the band were splitting up.

Explaining how he would extend the tour roster to also include Mushroomhead, Taylor told Live-Metal, "Honestly now, especially now since [GWAR vocalist Dave] Brockie’s dead— that was one of the guys that I really wanted to tour with. It was GWAR, [Slipknot], Mushroomhead and Mudvayne. I really wanted to put that together. So trust me. Hopefully sooner than later we will see what happens."

He added: "I'd love to put that together and just see what fucking happens - Slipknot, Mushroomhead, Gwar and Mudvayne. I can say it’s on my radar and it’s one of the things I want to do, like for real."

The US metal outfit are currently working on their next studio album with Taylor confirming earlier this year that the band have 17 demos to take into the studio.

When Jordison parted ways with the group he cited "personal reasons" as his motivation, and subsequently released a statement in which he claimed he did not "abandon" the group.
