Slipknot returned to the stage last September for its 2021 Roadshow after an 18 month break, playing the Rocklahoma festival. The band’s last Knotfest Roadshow included Killswitch Engage and Fever 333 on the line-up.
The band’s latest album ‘We Are Not Your Kind’ was released in August 2019. Frontman Corey Taylor recently confirmed that their new album will arrive this year.
Taking to Twitter, Taylor wrote: “Big Shit Coming, 2022 edition” before saying a new Slipknot album would be released this year. He then shared the quote “Hold On To Your Butts”.
Taylor also promised updates on his gonzo comedy/horror movie Zombie Versus Ninja and “secret ‘homecoming’ plans’”.
Taylor previously stated Slipknot’s upcoming seventh album is “really good“.
“I’m really, really stoked on it. I actually like this one more than I like ‘We Are Not Your Kind’, and I loved ‘We Are Not Your Kind’.”
Last August, Taylor confirmed he had just three songs left to record after his COVID diagnosis initially “screwed” things up. In December, he said he hoped the record would be mixed at the start of this year and then released “two or three months after”.
