Slipknot’s Corey Taylor On U.S. Presidential Election: “Anyone But Trump Is Better”


Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor was interviewed by Rolling Stone Australia and among other things, shared his thoughts on the impending U.S. presidential election and the next Stone Sour album. In regards to the election, he stated:

“…I have faith that come November people will make the right decision. Does that mean that Hillary Clinton is the right decision? No, I’m not saying that. Honestly, I had my horse tied up with Bernie [Sanders]. However, anyone but Trump is better in my fuckin’ opinion, and I think the majority of people know it. I’ve lost some fans over this. I’ve had people come at me on social media and on the radio because of the way I feel and I’m like, what is happening?”

As for Stone Sour‘s progress with their new album, he offered:

“We just demoed 18 songs and it is fucking killer. Every drop of it is really, really fucking good, so we are going in [the studio] in January to record the new album, hopefully get the album out by mid-to-late [U.S.] spring, and we’ll start touring before that. And I’m here to tell you, it’s the best fucking material we’ve ever had. And I’m really fucking excited about it.”
