Slipknot's Shawn Crahan has confirmed that the band are planning to head back into the studio to record another album.
The group’s future has been uncertain since the death of founding member and bassist Paul Gray last year.
When asked about the future of the band by Kerrang! Crahan said: ''There's plans [to make another record] but that's a way off. No-one will push it, because it's going to be a big one. It'll be closer to 'Iowa', but it'll be sadder and crazier. And really thought provoking, it could even be conceptual".
We're still taking some time to reflect on our brother [Gray]. Everybody needs to be collecting thoughts so they can get it out and no-one has really had time to collect thoughts yet. But we're the fucking 'Knot. And when we come out, you'll know your band is done.''
Slipknot are set to release a 10th anniversary edition of their 2001 album 'Iowa' on October 31.
