Slipknot: “We Have Problems”
Speaking to Undercover News Taylor went on to say: “There’s a lot of negativity in the Slipknot camp right now that is hard to get past, so much pressure has been put on us just from a mask stand point that it is hard to even think about the music anymore because with so many people it is just about the masks. One of the driving points for me to come back and do Stone Sour is because I just want to burn all that down. The masks were never meant to be the issue. The issue is supposed to be the music and it was. And it is to us. So many people, that’s all they care about anymore. It has really become a negative thing. There’s a lot of stuff on the Slipknot agenda that we have to work on before we get back together. But when we do, man, it’s going to be pivotal. It’s going to be huge”.
Corey also went on to clear up any rumours that the ‘Knot were gonna ditch their masks: “Never, ever, ever! Sometimes it’s a burden but it is what we do. When it comes to Slipknot, it will be a whole new phase, a whole new version. I guarantee when we come back it will be brutal. We will definitely be back next year.”
