Corey Taylor Says Slipknot Are ‘On Hiatus’

Mary Ouellette,

Stone Sour just dropped their ‘House of Gold & Bones Part 1‘ album and singer Corey Taylor is currently working on the second half of the release, so where does that leave his other band, Slipknot? The vocalist says that after touring the U.S. this past summer, things will scale back for the immediate future.

He told Artisan News Service in a video interview (seen below), “We’re doing a couple of shows next year, but that’s about it right now. It’s on hiatus.” Taylor has also been plotting a comic book series and is contemplating turning the two albums into corresponding films.

In other Corey Taylor news, the singer talks about his favorite tattoos in a new video clip, which can be seen below. The vocalist says of his general rule for getting tattoos, “There’s kind of a common theme of balance. You can’t have the good without the bad. You can’t have the light without the dark. For me, it’s been about having two ends of the spectrum.”

Taylor picked the tattoos he has on each forearm as his favorites, with two recognizable celebrities that have served as inspirations getting the ink treatment. To see who they are and hear Taylor’s explanation as to why he got them tattooed, check out the video below.
