In a recent interview with NME, Slipknot DJ Sid Wilson revealed that the band will be entering the studio in early 2013 to record the follow up to their 2008 album "All Hope Is Gone".
"We’ve got Mayhem Festival this summer and, after we break for winter and Stone Sour are done with their tour, we’ll be back in the kitchen with Slipknot. Actually before Stone Sour finish touring we’ll be in the studio preparing for Corey’s return, keeping the irons hot. It’ll be tough, it won’t be easy, Slipknot‘s the biggest thing in all of our lives, but we’re always going to come back to it. We’re going to get it done. I’m excited and I’m ready to do it. I’m sick of hearing people talk, it’s time for action. When we come together, it’s badass; we need to harness that energy of the live shows. When we come together like we always do, it’s going to be brutal."
The new album will be the band’s first recorded material without bassist Paul Gray, who passed away in 2010.
