Slipknot‘s advance press tour for their new album “.5: The Gray Chapter” (out October 21st) has seen a number of new interviews with the band circulating. Frontman Corey Taylor in particular has been making the rounds. First up Taylor shot down the rumors that their new song “The Negative One” was about ousted drummer Joey Jordison. Taylor told Metal Hammer (via MetalSucks):

“Oh my fucking God! People need to fucking unplug every now and again. I did hear some shit about the video for it, like it’s supposed to be Joey, but it’s so fucking funny.”

“Here’s the thing. The album is a story — not in a certain order; it jumps around — but it’s a story of this band for the last four years, from the moment Paul died to the moment we stepped out of the studio. So there are certain songs that deal with, not Joey in particular, but about the tension and trying to deal with the ugliness that we all have in us.

The Negative One” was about me, not about Joey, and that’s why the song says, ‘Your choices are the negative one and me,’ which is the two kinda colliding together. “The Devil In I” is the same, which you’d think would be fucking apparent.

I love the fact that our fans are that passionate, but ‘Judas Priest,’ get out of the fucking basement once in a while! Log off of the fucking Twitter and go smell a flower, and just let yourself get back to a point where you go, ‘Y’know what? That’s a little crazy.”

Taylor also spoke at length with Revolver about the album, some excerpts from that chat can be found below:
