Meanwhile, Slipknot recently spoke to NME about getting to work on their next album.


“I will give you this – we have decided to do things differently,” Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan told NME. “Our label had been bought and sold, people who used to give me advice are gone now, we’re still standing. We’re not going to wait around for Corey Taylor to say that he’s ready, no one’s going to wait for me to finish directing a movie, the same thing goes if someone wants to go out on tour with someone else.”

He added: “The future is very exciting because it’s the sixth record. The number ‘six’, besides being my personal number in Slipknot, is biblically, in computers, in maths, in whatever – the number six is a very important and structured number.”
