Slipknot's Clown: "We will be touring by next June in America"
Slipknot's Shawn "Clown" Crahan has posted a comment on Facebook concerning the recent rumors that the band are going to be heading out on a U.S. tour next summer. Following the death last year of bassist Paul Gray, the Iowa natives played a series of festivals in Europe this summer and are also set to headline the prestigious Rock in Rio festival next month. Understandably, though, fans in the U.S. have been clamoring to see the group in action. In his remarks Crahan confirmed that a U.S. tour was on the agenda for next year and also revealed that there are no immediate plans for the release of a new record.
This is what Crahan had to say:
“I also wanted to tell everyone straight from my mouth because you may have heard it already anyway, but Slipknot will be touring by next June in America only, but that does not mean things will not change, and as they do I will along with others tell you, our family, first.
"No album yet because it is too soon and there are no songs yet because the band needs to come together to write this next one. I cannot wait to feel the ideas like choking on color. Everything happens for a reason, so be ready.”
