While the fans have been waiting for the upcoming Slipknot album, the band announced the dates and places of their 2021 Knotfest Roadshow US including Killswitch Engage, Fever 333, and Code Orange which will start on September 25, 2021. However, the band members kept giving details about the new album without revealing its title or its release date.
During a new interview with Full Metal Jackie, Corey Taylor talked about the new Slipknot music and stated that anger and passion in their sound will never change, however, considering their old fans are now adults, they have different things to worry about and get angry about. Taylor also mentioned that they are aware of the fact that new and younger fans started to discover their music. Therefore their music must change and be written to satisfy their fans of all ages, countries, and living conditions.
Here’s what Corey Taylor said:
“When you hit a certain age, you realize that the anger and passion are still there, but it’s different things that rile you up and get you ready to rant and rave and go crazy.
It’s been really cool to evolve and mature with our original audience. Our original audience is all adults now and they’re dealing with real problems and adult issues.
The trick has been to write in a way that doesn’t seem like we are just clearly writing for them, but also write in a way that appeals to a younger generation as well, without coming off as phony or forced. It all comes down to writing things that feel like people anywhere can relate to, no matter what walk of life, no matter what color you are, religion, or country.”
Taylor went on:
“To have everyone embrace your message, especially when there’s so much pent up frustration in the world… our thing has been to evolve with the audience, but also make it attainable for a younger, new generation to come in and really feel like there’s something there and to kind of do it all over again. These young kids come in and go, ‘This is my band. This is the one that I want to run with and I want to fight with.’
And that’s been great. We’re still very fortunate to be able to do this and it’s because of things like that.”
