Before that pandemic, Corey Taylor working on his new solo project. His solo album “CMFT,” also released on October 2nd, 2020. In this latest album, Taylor works with Christian Martucci (guitar), Zach Throne (guitar), Jason Christopher (bass), and Dustin Robert (drums) on the record session.

And, in May 2019, SLIPKNOT‘s new costumes were revealed with the band’s appearance on the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” show.

During the interview with “Bertcast” program host Bert Kreischer on his YouTube Channel. Corey Taylor talks about SLIPKNOT’s early days, without mask event and TMZ:

“The first couple of years was rad. But then the more success we got, obviously, it’s human nature, man — the ego starts to come out.

As much as people think it was the reason I put STONE SOUR back together, it’s not. For me, that was about writing music again, ’cause I just wasn’t being able to write music in SLIPKNOT, ’cause I’m just not that good; I’m not as good as those guys are at intricate riffs and shit. I’ve gotten better, but at the time, I wasn’t getting to write music. I just felt unfulfilled. So I put that back together. But the by-product of was now all of a sudden people know I look like.”

Then he continued with TMZ: 

“I get the benefits of fame without the TMZ shit. I don’t get any of that shit. I get to play in front of thousands, millions of people. I get to do cool shit like this, and I can still chill at home. Nobody’s camping outside my fucking house.

All my kids are taken care of. My bills are paid. I have no fucking worries. I love it. It’s the best.”

He also recently said in his latest interview SLIPKNOT’s new album coming next year. Watch the interview below!
