V-Man weighs in on Slipknot releasing singles instead of albums – Jimmy Star’s World – News Block

In November 2022, Slipknot percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan alluded that the band might forgo albums in favor of singles (with frontman Corey Taylor partially fueling the fire days later). Since then, fans have been eager for more clarification on the matter, and thankfully, bassist/keyboardist Alessandro “V-Man” Venturella has now given devotees hope that future LPs are possible.

speaking to hell tv On June 18, 2023 (the same day Slipknot played the festival), V-Man was asked to comment on his bandmates’ comments and the resulting speculation.

He clarified:

I mean, it’s not a thing set in stone. I think it’s more like, now that we’re not with a record label, um, now we can do whatever we want and we’re not bound by certain aspects. You know, we’re in a world right now where it’s trying to get everyone together to make a whole record and the logistics of getting nine people together in one place, somewhere like Los Angeles or something, (to) record a record, it is a great company.

Especially in the current climate and how everything is, where as if we take our time and do the things that we want to, you know, we can put out a single and we can do this here, and I think that’s what (Crahan) was coming up with. .

Albums are still a thing, and we still want to make albums, but I think it was more like, “Hey, times are changing. We can say, ‘Hey guys, here’s a new single. You can have just one,’” you know? And we’re not, like, four years later, here comes an album. We can be a little freer to do what we want.

Your explanation certainly makes sense. Plus, it gives fans a bit more optimism regarding a proper full follow-up for The end, so far (which we named as one of the 50 best rock and metal records of 2022).

As far as Slipknot not being attached to a record label anymore, The end, so far was the band’s final release on Roadrunner Records (who they signed with in 1998 and released all of his studio LPs).

We recently included Slipknot’s “Wait and Bleed,” the lead single from their 1999 self-titled debut album, on our list of bands with multiple music videos for one song. Also, the identity of their new keyboardist may have been exposed last week.

In June, Taylor issued a frivolous challenge to WWE superstar Randy Orton and record player Sid Wilson shared a photo of his first child with Kelly Osbourne.

Of course, Taylor is currently on tour as well. You can check their remaining dates here and buy tickets here.
