COREY TAYLOR Talks Future Of SLIPKNOT, 'Knotfest' In New Video Interview

KXVO, the CW affiliate in Omaha, Nebraska, conducted an interview with SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor at SLIPKNOT's first-ever Knotfest, an extraordinary two-date metal and hard rock festival which took place on August 17 in Council Bluffs, Iowa and August 18 in Somerset, Wisconsin. You can now watch the chat below.

Asked what kind of bands he would like on future editions of Knotfest, Taylor said, "For me, I would like to keep it… Bands from our generation, or maybe, like, SLAYER would be wonderful to have on the Knotfest shows. Stuff like KORN, maybe, would be great, ROB ZOMBIE — maybe even encourage a WHITE ZOMBIE reunion."

He added, "I'm not sure. There's a lot of great metal bands out there right now and this might be a great platform for them to have their own moment in the sun. So I think as long as we put together a package people really wanna see, I think it will sell itself."

Regarding what he sees in the future for SLIPKNOT, Taylor said, "We're gonna take a break and slowly but surely start putting some music together. Obviously, I have STONE SOUR that's going out for probably about a year and a half, two years with two albums. Joey's [Jordison, drums] got something, Clown's [percussion] got something, everybody's kind of got something that they're doing right now. But in the interim, we'll start putting music together and we'll just kind of see what happens."

He continued, "Obviously, the more we feel together as a band and as a family, the easier it will be to start working on new music. Obviously, without [late SLIPKNOT bassist] Paul [Gray], it's a little bittersweet, but I think the closer we become as a band, the closer we'll be to making a new album. So maybe in a couple years; we'll see. But it's gonna take a little time.”
