They've been covering their dads' band's songs

The sons of Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor and Shawn ‘The Clown’ Crahan have started a band together.

Griffin Taylor and Simon Crahan have posted videos of their group online, including cover’s of their dads’ band.

Crahan drums in the group, while Taylor fronts them. They are joined by bassist Jeremiah Pugh and guitarist Cole Espeland.


Two videos of the four jamming have appeared online. In the first, they cover Slipknot’s ‘Dead Memories’, while the second sees them tackle ‘The Devil In I’. Watch both of those below.

Earlier this year, Shawn Crahan revealed why the band no longer want to play alongside the likes of Foo Fighters at festivals. “I ask myself, does Slipknot want to play next to the Foo Fighters?,” he said. “The answer is no, because my kids don’t want me to do that.”

“If we play alongside the Foo Fighters we are going to get new fans, I agree with that. I love that. But I’m worried about the kid that won’t come to the show, because we’re playing with the Foo Fighters. He wants to know why we’re not playing with Nine Inch Nails. Those kids tell all of us what they want.”

He added that he didn’t need new fans, but the fans with “anxiety, parents are getting divorced, social problems, gender problems.”


Meanwhile, Corey Taylor has given an update on progress of the band’s long-awaited new album. “The guys are writing tons of music and I’ve written lyrics to almost all of it,” he told Billboard. “We’re going to start trying to put together demos here and there with the time off that I have and really try to get ahead of the curve as far as what happens next.”
