Slipknot returned to the stage in September for its 2021 Roadshow, which included a performance at the Rocklahoma festival, following an 18-month hiatus. Killswitch Engage and Fever 333 were among the bands who performed on the band's most recent Knotfest Roadshow.
We Are Not Your Kind, the band's most recent studio album, was released in August of this year. Corey Taylor, the band's frontman, recently confirmed that their new album will be released this year.
“Big Shit Coming, 2022 edition,” Taylor wrote on Twitter, before announcing that a new Slipknot album would be released this year. Hold On To Your Butts” is a quote that he shared after that.
Updates on his gonzo comedy/horror film Zombie Versus Ninja and “secret ‘homecoming' plans,” according to Taylor, were also promised.
In a previous interview, Taylor stated that Slipknot's upcoming seventh studio album is “really good.”
“I'm overjoyed with it. I'm beyond thrilled.” “I actually like this one more than ‘We Are Not Your Kind,' and I really liked ‘We Are Not Your Kind,' so that's saying something.”
Following his COVID diagnosis, Taylor revealed in August that he had only three songs left to record after the diagnosis initially “screwed” things up. When asked about the record's release date, he stated that he hoped it would be mixed at the start of this year and released “two or three months later.”
