We recognize that it takes work to be in this band and when we’re all going for it, there’s an appreciation that maybe before we felt we couldn’t show and the more that we all show that the better it feels as a brotherhood.
“There have been moments where I’ve come so close to walking away from this and I’m really glad that I didn’t to be honest. The payoff has been fantastic, especially now that we’re in this really great place and we are performing at a level that is still top notch.
“And writing music that is still really good and connecting with a whole new generation, which is insane. I don’t think we could have done it with anybody else.”
In 2016, COREY TAYLOR revealed that SLIPKNOT almost broke up after their first album saying
When we really exploded, we had serious talks about breaking up and pulling a Sex Pistols and put a massive album out and then say, ‘Expletive you, we’re outta here!’
“Those were real conversations. I feel like we’ve failed everyone by making Iowa! It was such a great thing to think about. None of this success was expected. On paper we shouldn’t have made it and yet here we are. It’s a weird feeling still.”
SLIPKNOT are currently on tour in Europe in support of their 2019 album We Are Not Your Kind. Their tour lasts until February 24th where they play their final show in Helsinki, Finland. The band will then head to Asia and then back to North America this summer.
