SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor was interviewed by 97.1 The Eagle's Cindy Scull at this year's BFD festival, which was held May 28 at the Starplex Pavilion in Dallas, Texas. You can now watch the chat below.
Asked about the current status of SLIPKNOT, Taylor said: "We're not really doing anything right now. I know we're kind of slowly starting to write some music. Other than that, we're just kind of taking some time off. Clown's gonna direct some movies, Sid's gonna do some stuff… We're all kind of doing our own thing… But that's it. I mean, really. Next year is everybody kind of doing their own thing, and then probably after that, we will slowly but surely start to get together to do some SLIPKNOT stuff."
SLIPKNOT's touring cycle in support of its latest album, 2014's ".5: The Gray Chapter", ended in November, with Taylor returning to his other band STONE SOUR this year.
".5: The Gray Chapter" was released following a six-year hiatus during which founding SLIPKNOT bassist Paul Gray died and drummer Joey Jordison was dismissed.
One of last gigs of "The Gray Chapter" touring cycle saw SLIPKNOT performing its 2001 second LP, "Iowa", live in its entirety for the first time during the band's set at their annual Knotfest.
".5: The Gray Chapter" sold around 132,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores in October 2014 via Roadrunner.
Gray died in 2010 from a drug overdose, while Jordison was let go in December 2013, just before SLIPKNOT began recording the last album.
