During a recent live performance, band singer Corey Taylor addressed rumors of a “Slipknot break up.” Some break up rumors have been floating around the internet, with folks making assumptions based off the title of the new Slipknot album, THE END, SO FAR. Per this title, there are some people that believe this could be alluding to the band breaking up – however, this is not the case.
Taylor addressed these rumors of a “Slipknot break up” by telling the crowd that the title of the new album “represents the end of one moment and the beginning of the rest of our fucking lives.”
This is everything Corey Taylor had to say:
“I’ll tell you what, some of you might have heard the news that Slipknot has a new album coming out very, very soon. The name of that album is called THE END, SO FAR. And for those doomsday motherfuckers who think that Slipknot are gonna break up, that is not the case. This simply represents the end of one moment and the beginning of the rest of our fucking lives. Do you understand what I’m fucking saying to you out there?”

Along with the announcement of the new Slipknot album, THE END, SO FAR, the band released a new single titled “The Dying Song (Time To Sing).” In other Corey Taylor related news, the Slipknot singer recently shared how he feels about artists who claim to not listen to their own music.
