SLIPKNOT's SID WILSON Is 'Laying The Last' Of His Parts Down For New Album

SLIPKNOT DJ Sid Wilson is wrapping up the recording sessions for the band's new album.

Wilson checked in via Instagram yesterday, saying that he was "lounging out" in the SLIPKNOT studios "laying the last" of his parts down. "So, it's getting closer, y'all," he added.

Due on August 9, SLIPKNOT's upcoming disc will include the song "All Out Life", which was released last October. The track's accompanying video was directed by the band's own M. Shawn Crahan.

SLIPKNOT's sixth album is once again being recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Greg Fidelman, who engineered and mixed SLIPKNOT's 2004 album "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)" and helmed 2014's ".5: The Gray Chapter".

Singer Corey Taylor recently said that "All Out Life" is not representative of the type of music fans can expect to hear on SLIPKNOT's long-awaited new LP. "Honestly, it's probably, to me, the lightest tune on the album," he told 95.5 KLOS's Full Metal Jackie. "I mean, it's a great tune, it's a heavy tune, but it's not a good representation of the darkness that is involved with the music. We are taking some really cool risks musically. We're dipping into some evil we haven't played with in a long time, let's put it that way. It's got little hints of everything we've ever done, but it's got some of the heaviest stuff we've ever done as well."

Taylor told the Des Moines Register that he wrote "All Out Life" in part because he didn't see others using music as a force to "take a hard look at what you believe."

He explained: "People are way too pissed about the wrong things and not pissed enough about the right things. "[The song sets] the tone for getting people to stand up and go, 'We're not gonna allow this. We're not gonna allow people to run us down for religious beliefs, for the color we are, for what we stand for. For who we chose to love.' All of these things. There's nobody doing it, man. Everybody's too worried about their pockets. Everybody's too worried about their paychecks.

"That was me, basically, drawing a line in the sand and going, 'Guess what? You don't get to do this anymore,'" he added.

Some of SLIPKNOT's new album will also deal with Taylor's depression that led to a divorce and forced him to "figure out who I was" without relapsing into substance abuse.

"All I was doing was giving and I found myself absolutely, completely tapped," he told the Des Moines Register. "You could see it in my skin. You could see it in my eyes. That's basically the journey I'm going to take people on this album … show them what happens to depression when you have no chemicals to fall back on."

SLIPKNOT's "Knotfest Roadshow" headline tour will take place in North America this summer. VOLBEAT, GOJIRA and BEHEMOTH will join as special guests on all dates.

Produced by Live Nation, the 29-city outing will kick off July 26 in Mountain View, California at Shoreline Amphitheater and continue through September 8 where it will conclude with a performance at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, Texas.
