Slipknot's 'Clown': "The new album could come out in early 2017"


Slipknot percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan was recently interviewed by Full Metal Jackie. Below you can read an excerpt.

About the release of the next Slipknot album, Crahan said: "I'm not sure, 'cause we're slated to tour the rest of this year and some of next year. So... I mean, it takes six months to make a record... And then marketing and preparation... So, you know, if we're touring the rest of this year and some of next year, it could be as early as the first quarter of 2017. I mean, I'm just giving you actual facts. But we're writing now. We're in the rhythm of writing all the time, which is a very helpful tool, because we love doing that. So it's not a waste of time. It's not anything that won't get used. Usually, if we're writing, it's passion. Whether it's written here on the road or in someone's garage or basement, it's all for the better cause. So, who knows?! Hopefully soon."
