SLIPKNOT drummer Jay Weinberg says that the band has already begun thinking about its seventh studio album.
SLIPKNOT‘s next disc will be the follow-up to “We Are Not Your Kind”, which entered the Billboard chart at No. 1 marking the band’s third consecutive No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.
Asked by the official SLIPKNOT fanclub Outside The 9 if he and his bandmates have started to plan their next effort, Weinberg said (see video below): “Yes. I can say yes. We’re musicians. That’s what we do — we write and create music, and we’ve created songs that we’ve announced that is SLIPKNOT‘s sixth album. But we’re constantly in a creative mode. So once we finish album number six, yeah, I think our attention definitely turns to, of course, touring and playing music in support of this new album that we’ve created and that we’re really excited to share. But just as artists who want to keep pushing forward and charting new territory and keep making art that we’re really proud of, of course we’re thinking about the next record. So, we’ll see. Who knows what that’s gonna be like, when that’s gonna be, but, yeah, we’re always thinking about new music and what the next album is gonna be like.”
“We Are Not Your Kind” entered the Billboard chart at No. 1, marking SLIPKNOT‘s third consecutive No. 1 album on the Billboard 200. Furthermore, the album made an impact worldwide with No. 1 debuts in the United States, United Kingdom, Mexico, Australia, Canada, Japan, Ireland, Belgium, Portugal and Finland, as well as Top 5 debuts in Germany, France, Norway, Italy, Austria, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Poland, Spain and New Zealand.
“We Are Not Your Kind” is highlighted by “Solway Firth”, “Birth Of The Cruel” and the LP’s lead single, “Unsainted”. Each has come with an M. Shawn Crahan-directed official music video, and each has trended worldwide on YouTube (all videos, not just music) — “Unsainted”at No. 1 worldwide for a full 24 hours. Combined, the band has amassed over 58 million views in only two months.
