This, according to Joey Jordison, Slipknot’s pint-sized drummer. The question of whether Iowan metallers Slipknot would carry on after the recent passing of bassist Paul Gray has been on the minds of maggots on a global scale, and until now, Slipknot hasn’t really addressed the matter.
Leave it to Fuse TV’s Mistress Juliya [Edit: She dates Guy from the Red Chord…no shit] to get to the heart of the matter. She interviewed Jordison during a recent stop on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.
When Juliya asked Joey about the possibility of a new album, he said there will be a follow-up to 2008’s All Hope Is Gone; Jordison is spending the summer as Rob Zombie’s kitman on Mayhem. “Absolutely. I just wanna thank all the fans for their support on my loss. But there will be another record for sure,” Joey told Jules.
Well, how can you blame them? Slipknot is one of the biggest bands of the last two decades, and really, there’s no reason why they shouldn’t carry on and keep Gray’s legacy intact and his memory alive. Hell, Avenged Sevenfold did it. And while it may be tough for them to get back into the studio and actually do the recording, they’ll find a way. Of course, with Jordison’s Murderdolls resurrected and Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor busy with Stone Sour, it will be a while before we get that new ‘Knot.
I wanted to put up a picture of Joey Jordison, or even Juliya. But then I found this awesome shot of Kim Kardashian’s badunkadunk. Girls, that’s what a dumper should look like.
