Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and Jim Root are planning a side project together.
The former Notorious kicked his bandmate out of his other group, Stone Sour, in 2014, but the pair have healed their wounds and are closer than ever as they plan another venture together.
Speaking about the new issue of Metal Hammer, 48-year-old Corey said: “He and I are very different people and we were both going through our own experiences in life. We reconnected, and we really wanted to do something. Talking about the stuff on the side, outside of Slipknot and Stone Sour.
“It’s nice to find your friend again and to realize that you can go back to the people you care about. Honestly, I can’t sit here and say that I wasn’t responsible for some bad feelings. It just come with self-reflection, and the fact that the things that were going on in my life influenced and influenced other people. Once you’ve depended on that, you bridges by showing people can begin to correct that you are really sorry.”
Jim previously admitted that he and Corey would have “murdered each other” if he had lived in Stone Sour.
Speaking in 2019, the 50-year-old guitarist said: “Corey and I are so close now. It’s the best part, I’m leaving Stone Sour. We’d just drive each other crazy by killing each other. I myself Can’t spread it so thin.”
Jim admits, in retrospect, he had an “s**** attitude” towards his bandmates.
He said: “I needed it, this band needed it and Stone Sour definitely needed it. I just didn’t have enough time to do what I love. I think they’re my* **** Were tired of the attitude, that’s for sure.”
Slipknot is set to release their seventh studio album “The End, So Far” on September 30.
The follow-up to 2019’s ‘We’re Not Your Kind’ marks the last of his long-standing deal with Roadrunner Records.
In December, frontman Corey promised fans something special, insisting that he liked the new collection “more” than his previous records.
he said: “[It’s] Really good; I’m really, really hooked on this. I actually like it more than ‘We’re Not Your Kind’, and I like ‘We’re Not Your Kind’. ,
