Joey Jordison Says He’s Always Writing New Music for Slipknot

Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison is gearing up for the release of the self-titled debut of Scar the Martyr, his side project. But the skinsman is always working on Slipknot material.

He offered an update about the progress of the follow up to 2008’s ‘All Hope Is Gone,’ saying that there is no dearth of material or nor is there a lack of desire. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. He is in a creative boon and it could lead to a double album.

“Whenever I pick up a guitar and I’m not doing anything, I’m always writing riffs,” he told ArtistDirect. “That’s all we’re doing. We’ve all got a s—tload of riffs. We’re always writing.” That’s good news for the maggots.

The band has always taken healthy hiatuses in between albums, with the members doing other things and satisfying creative urges before coming back as a stronger and more brutal unit. But with the 2010 death of bassist and songwriter Paul Gray, the gap between Slipknot albums has widened, understandably so. That doesn’t mean the Iowa wrecking crew is idle.

Jordison continued, “Even though we haven’t gotten together, there’s plenty of material there. We talk to each other all the time on our cell phones and all of that when we’re on tour in different spots of the world. We’re all working. It hasn’t found its time yet. We’re continuing to write though. We’re always writing. We’re going to have so much s–t it might have to be a double record.”
