As Slipknot continue writing material for what will be their 6th studio album, Shawn “Clown” Crahan says “this could be it for me”
Shawn “Clown” Crahan says that Slipknot’s sixth studio album could well be his last.
He, along with guitarist Jim Root and drummer Jay Weinberg have been writing new material while frontman Corey Taylor concentrates on Stone Sour.
Crahan told Metal Hammer in October that they had “seven or eight” full songs ready – and in a new interview on The Jasta Show, the percussionist reports that he’s been in a reflective mood, and adds: “this could be it for me.”
Crahan says (via Metal Injection): “I just spent four months thinking about my life and where I’m at right now because I’m at a real honest place of admitting what I don’t want to be.
“A lot of it is bringing all this emotion to art and music. And honestly, this music that we’re writing right now is the proof of looking inward and being able to put the first foot down and say, ‘We’re gonna do something for ourselves and write.’
“So we’ve been writing and this music is coming out. I feel weird things are coming but it’s always like that for the guys like us – we get involved in our records and the sky all of a sudden changes.”
