COREY TAYLOR Shoots Down Rumor That SLIPKNOT Is Quitting After ‘The End, So Far’ Album
Corey Taylor denied the rumor that NOOSE will separate after the release of the band’s next album.
Since NOOSE announced the title of his next LP, “The End, So Far”earlier this week, speculation swirled that the name refers to the fact that the LP will mark the end of the band’s recording career.
taylorwho turned 48 last December, responded to the rumor during NOOSEthe concert last Thursday (July 21) at rock hills festival in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. The singer told the crowd (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “I’ll tell you what, some of you may have heard the news that NOOSE has a new album coming out very, very soon. The name of this album is called “The End, So Far”. And for those apocalyptic motherfuckers who think that NOOSE will break, that is to say not the case. It just represents the end of a moment and the beginning of the rest of our fucking lives. Do you understand what I am telling you over there?”
In the old days, taylor repeatedly hinted that he would quit NOOSE if he felt he was not capable of reaching a certain level. During an appearance in 2016 in an episode of the “Someone who is not me” podcast, taylor He was asked if he thinks he’ll ever decide he’s “tired of touring”. taylor replied, “You know, honestly, if you had asked me a year ago, I would have said no. As willful as my will is, I’m just beaten, man. I mean, I might as well be 60 NOOSE years, for Christ’s sake.”
He continued: “I don’t know if I would retire. I might walk away from NOOSE at some point, just because of the way the music is, and that sense of energy, I don’t know if I might be able to do this in my 50s. And I would never want the band to feel like they were holding them back, because I just couldn’t physically do it. So that means I wouldn’t give up music completely; I would probably walk away from NOOSE.”
In a 2019 interview with the “Marshall Podcast”, taylor referred to possible retirement, saying, “It’s when you stop caring about it that you should quit. Period. Because you’re not doing it for the same reasons you started doing it in the first place. .
“I talk to fans all the time and they’re like, ‘What’s your motivation for doing this?’ love making music, i love making music , creating it.
“Money is going to come and go. If I wanted to make money, there’s a whole host of different jobs I could do just to make money. It’s not about that, it there’s something deeper. I’m glad I can make money doing this, but it’s not about that for me, it’s about the next one.”
When asked if there were times when he lost sight of this track, Corey said, “Only when I was drinking. And it wasn’t because of the music. Like, I was still attached to the music, but I was so out of myself that it took me out of me- same, so I can’t even include that because it wasn’t me at the time. I also know that one of the things that I realized that really encouraged me on the path to sobriety was seeing how bad my voice sounded, how bad my creative level was. It was a huge piece in me, to call it a day on that shit.”
In a 2018 interview with Musical universe, taylor was asked about his band mate Shawn “Clown” Crahanevaluation that the next NOOSE the album could be Clownis the last. “We all say that,” Taylor explained. “I’ve said this in the past. We’ve always said – and it’s not in a negative way – we’ve always said that when we get to the point where we physically can’t do NOOSE the way we want to do it, let’s stop. And for some of us, the years spent in NOOSE took [their] ring. Cold mornings kick my ass. My neck, my knees, my hips… [DJ] sid [Wilson] broke every fucking bone in his body. Clown, he’s had his share of health and so forth and physical issues. We’ve all had an injury in this group – from our necks to our retinas. And honestly, if it was her decision, I wouldn’t NOOSE without him, absolutely not.”
He continued: “There’s a certain mentality that goes into NOOSE, and it started. It has always been the vision of this group, for NOOSE, and without that, it collapses. So yeah, if he left, that would be it for me too. And I say that, honestly, in a very positive way, because none of us would want to continue doing it from a half-assed point of view. Nobody wants to go 50% on a NOOSE album.”
NOOSEthe seventh studio album by, “The End, So Far”will be released on September 30 via Roadrunner folders. What’s next in 2019 “We are not your type”This will be the band’s last album with Roadrunner after first signing with the rock and metal label in 1998.
