The co-founder, percussionist and background vocalist of the heavy metal band Slipknot, Clown, opened up Slipknot’s coronavirus process and stated that the band works on the new album amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
Recently, the 51-year-old musician appeared on Slipknot’s YouTube channel to talk about the band and share their future plans. With the interview, Slipknot star made fans happy by revealing some good news about the band.
Speaking about the band’s coronavirus process, Clown said that the band spends their free time to write new music. He also touched coronavirus’s positive sides and expressed that it removed the pressure. Clown also added his words that they’re doing that because they want to, not about someone’s pressure.
“Right now is kind of an interesting time, Clown said. “We’re taking this time to write some new music. So for the last week, we’ve been just having a good time, eating a lot of food and writing God music. So we’re having a good time.
“Since everybody’s taken a lot of time off, we thought we’d utilize it by getting together and do what we probably do best, which is write music.
“So it’s been good, because there’s no pressure. It’s not like we have to. We’re doing it ’cause we want to. And it’s just been a blessing, because boredom can set in.
“And I know all of us in the world are going crazy, so we’re really lucky to be able to be together and do what we love most.”
Slipknot released its latest studio album just before the coronavirus pandemic. The band titled the sixth album ‘We Are Not Your Kind,’ which was released on August 9th, 2019.
