Slipknot Will Record Follow Up To 'All Hope Is Gone'!


Shawn 'Clown' Crahan has confirmed to Kerrang! magazine that Slipknot will record a follow-up to 2008’s ‘All Hope Is Gone,’ but added that it won’t happen right away.

"There’s plans to make another record but that’s a way off, Crahan said. No one will push it, because it’s going to be a big one. It’ll be closer to ‘Iowa’, but it’ll be sadder and crazier and really thought provoking, it could even be conceptual."

Understandably, Crahan added, Slipknot are going to take their time with the project because they’re still dealing with the loss of bassist Paul Gray, who died May 24, 2010, in a hotel in Urbandale, Iowa.

"We’re still taking some time to reflect on our brother," Crahan says. "Everybody needs to be collecting thoughts so they can get it out and no-one has really had time to collect thoughts yet. But we’re the f***ing ‘Knot. And when we come out, you’ll know your band is done."

Slipknot will release a 10th anniversary edition of 2001’s ‘Iowa’ on November 1st 2011.
