Corey Taylor has announced a new cover and acoustic EP CMFB…Sides, out February 25th.

Taylor has also been busy working on new Slipknot music. During a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation with Eddie Trunk, Taylor revealed the masked band’s new album is done and in the final mixing stages. The singer also confirmed the album will be out later this year.
When talking about the record’s sound, Taylor said it’s darker and more melodic than We Are Not Your Kind and heavier than Vol. 3. “It’s really killer, man. It’s darker than We Are Not Your Kind, but there’s a ton of melody. I’ve been telling everybody that it’s like a heavier version of Vol. 3. It’s got so many textures and layers. The heavy stuff has attack but the melodic stuff you can just sink your teeth in; there’s a lot of great melodies and hooks. I’m really, really excited for people to hear it.”
