Corey Taylor's debut solo album CMFT is due out in October.
The musician recently told Kerrang! that he had enough for even more material in the future, too, excitedly revealing, “My future’s not set anymore. I do know that I’ve got material for two other albums. I’ve been sitting on a lot of stuff for a long, long time, so I’m definitely prepared for it, and I’ve already got it mapped out how I will do it.”
He continued of how he sees the next few years panning out: “Once everything starts to fire back up – knock on wood – it’s probably going to be another year of touring with Slipknot, just to cover our bases and make sure we get around the world, and get to the fans. And I’m not going to hold that up, because I know the fans have been waiting for a long time for us to get there.
“The plan is to do a couple of things here and there virtually with [the solo album] before everything kind of fires up with Slipknot, go out and do the next year with Slipknot, and then, after that’s done, I’m taking a break from Slipknot and Stone Sour. I’m gonna do more solo stuff – maybe even go in and record CMFT2. Ostensibly that’s the plan. And then really tour, and then be able to tour on two albums.”
