Yes, Corey Taylor has entered the studio with producer Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Steel Panther) to begin recording the follow-up to 2020’s CMFT. News of the record comes from bassist Eliot Lorango, who confirms the new music is sounding rad.
Taylor previously confirmed he’d be hitting the studio this winter in an interview with Eddie Trunk, adding he’ll also be hitting the road for a “‘rock is back’ kind of tour for the solo stuff.”
“We’re gonna go in and bang it out and get it ready,” Taylor said. “And then once I’m done touring with Slipknot, I’m gonna throw together a really rad, ‘rock is back’ kind of tour for the solo stuff and start bringing out some of the younger—maybe not even some of the younger rock bands, but just some of the bands that don’t get the chance or just don’t get the looks that are afforded to either pop bands and hip-hop bands or people like me who are kind of grandfathered in.
“So I’m gonna try and really kind of fly the rock flag and give some opportunities to some of the younger bands and maybe even just the mid-level bands that just haven’t had a shot. ‘Cause there’s so many great bands out there.”
