COREY TAYLOR On SLIPKNOT’s Plan To Record Double Concept Album
Slipknot singer Corey Taylor confirmed that the band is considering writing and recording a double concept album to follow last year’s “.5: The Gray Chapter”.
“.5: The Gray Chapter” was released in October 2014 – after a six-year hiatus during which founding Slipknot bassist Paul Gray died and original drummer Joey Jordison was fired from the band.
Slipknot percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan recently told BBC Radio 1’s “Rock Show” that he would love to see the band record a double concept album in the vein of Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” and The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”, with a movie to go along with the project.
Slipknot’s “Summer’s Last Stand” tour kicks off on July 24 in West Palm Beach, Florida, wrapping up six weeks later on September 5 in Dallas.
