2012 will be a "strengthening" year for Slipknot says frontman

Wed, 18 January 2012

In a recent interview with Loudwire.com, Slipknot frontman - Corey Taylor, explained that 2012 will be a "strengthening year" for the band.

"I think 2012 will just be more of a strengthening year for us." says the singer when asked what he saw happening for Slipknot in the coming year, he continued to explain, "The 2010 death of bassist Paul Gray is still very fresh for us, even though it’s been a year and a half since his death. It is still something that breaks me down every night. I just know if we try to rush in and make an album that doesn’t feel right, the audience will know. The audience will know that it doesn’t feel right and they’ll know it was forced and they’ll know it isn’t genuine. If anything we have always been as genuine with our audience as possible. That is why I have gone out of my way to say ‘Look, I’m not ready to do it.'"

When the band do start writing a new Slipknot album the singer does know that they'll be doing it to tribute their late band mate. "When we make the album we all know it is going to be for Paul, you know? And I don’t think any of us are ready to open up that much yet. I think we need to take the steps to strengthen ourselves as a band first."
