A new year doesn’t mean the schedule suddenly eases up for Corey Taylor. In fact, the ubiquitous rocker detailed his sweeping plans for 2022 in a new tweet.
“Big Shit Coming, 2022 edition,” Taylor said, before listing “ZvN updates, the SK album, secret ‘coming home’ plans etc. Stay tuned!” and Franklin D. Roosevelt’s hilarious quote “Hold On To Your Butts”.
Slipknot’s news shouldn’t come as a surprise, as the band have spoken frequently about their work on a new album over the past few months. Last month, Taylor himself revealed that he had four songs left to sing for the new album and that things were on track for a spring 2022 release. The band also gave their first glimpse of the new music. last fall with the release of “The Chapeltown Rag”.
“The goal is to get it ready for mixing in January so that we can release it two or three months later,” Taylor told HardDrive Radio host Lou Brutus.
As for Zombie vs. Ninja, the Slipknot frontman started talking about his immersion in the world of cinema early last year. After announcing in February that he had completed work on five film scripts, in March the singer began sharing details about Zombie vs. Ninja that seemed to be his main goal.
Speaking to Frightmare HQ, Taylor called the film a “gonzo horror comedy,” adding, “It’s the kind of fucking movie I’ve always loved, and it’s the kind of movie that I always wanted to do. “
As for Taylor’s “secret comeback,” that appears to be the least defined project in his update, but one would assume Taylor would be planning something in Iowa for later this year. As for what it could be, Taylor could involve any of his bands, his solo work or even his books and film work. Stay tuned to see how this one plays out.
