COREY TAYLOR: No 'Serious' SLIPKNOT Activity Planned Before 2008

STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor has told that the band's current success means he and guitarist Jim Root won't be able to devote their energy to SLIPKNOT until early 2008. While this seems to contradict percussionist M. Shawn Crahan's claim that the 'KNOT would be writing together next fall or early summer, Taylor said he never planned to do much with the band in 2007.

"I just don't see anything serious happening until the beginning of early 2008," he reiterated. "But that was my plan from the get-go. Between recording and touring for 'Vol 3: The Subliminal Verses', we spent two and a half years, and that period was just so f---in' crazy that you kind of have to give it at least that much equal time to settle down and get the interest back up."

STONE SOUR is planning on filming a video soon for its new single, "Sillyworld". The band plans to hire an animator for the clip, which Taylor hopes will be a cross between PINK FLOYD's "The Wall" and QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE's video for "Go With the Flow". "There will be a little principal photography, but mostly it'll be animated," Taylor said. "We definitely want to do something that fits with the different themes of the song, but at the same time is really cool to watch."

Taylor said that he has a director in mind for "Sillyworld", but the deal hasn't yet been sealed. He added that STONE SOUR won't stop at three singles. While "Sillyworld" is making the rounds in the U.S., "Socio" will be released in Europe, and if the European single and video do well, they will likely be released here in the future. Also, Taylor wants to cap off the "Come What(ever) May" crusade with "Zzyzx Rd.", which should hit radio and video outlets in late 2007.
