SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor recently told Spain’s Resurrection Fest TV that the band’s follow-up to 2014’s ”.5: The Gray Chapter” album will likely arrive next summer. Saying that 2019 will be ”a big year for SLIPKNOT,” Taylor added that the band’s plans for the coming months include the launch of ”a big world tour.”
”.5: The Gray Chapter” was released following a six-year hiatus during which founding SLIPKNOT bassist Paul Gray died and drummer Joey Jordison was dismissed.
”.5: The Gray Chapter” sold around 132,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores in October 2014 via Roadrunner.
Gray died in 2010 from a drug overdose, while Jordison was let go in December 2013, just before SLIPKNOT began recording the last album.
