Over the next couple of years, Slipknot are planning on releasing an album of unheard b-sides from their 'All Hope Is Gone' album recording sessions, according to Shawn 'Clown' Crahan.
Speaking to Loudwire, Clown shared that during the recording of 'All Hope Is Gone', he along with Corey Taylor, Sid Wilson and Jim Root were becoming frustrated with the progress being made in the main studio, so their producer locked them in a second studio together to work on more off-beat "psychadelic" songs together.
“We have a whole other album that four of us wrote when we did ‘All Hope Is Gone’,” Clown shared. “We have 11 songs that we’re gonna release sometime in this album cycle. But it’s never been about just getting it out. It needs to be out when it’s right and by coming out during this album cycle people will even understand more what we’re doing on this album and what first led to it.”
But why now? According to Clown, these more psychadelic tracks will be more palatable to Slipknot fans after the release of the more experimental 'We Are Not Your Kind'. Which just went number one in the UK and US, mind you.
