Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor recently shed some light on the issue of the group’s new bassist and drummer, specifically the masks they’ll be wearing.
“On one hand they get a mask but at the same time, it’s not the individual mask that we in the band use. We knew that any attempt to do anything like that might be taken as disrespectful, but at the same time it’s part of the way of moving, getting past the hardest steps, which is just moving on.
“So, we decided that we would come up with a mask that works for both the bassist and the drummer and that’s what they’ll wear on stage,” the singer concluded.
Speaking of masks, the entire band is set to take on a fresh set. Check out a glimpse of Corey’s new mask here.
As for the new album, “.5: The Gray Chapter” is due on October 21 via Roadrunner featuring 14 new songs, as well as two bonus tracks. Details here.
