After a two-week break While You Were Away is back ready to fill you in on the music news you missed! This week, we’re talking about the new BABYMETAL, plus Slipknot’s long-rumored Look Outside Your Window album, the 2023 edition of Dia De Los Deftones, and more.
Slipknot’s ‘Look Outside Your Window’ may be released next year
In a new interview with NME, Taylor spoke about the rumored record and revealed why it has been delayed for so long.
“I was talking to Clown about it the other day and he goes, ‘One of the reasons it hasn’t come out is because you keep putting shit out, which keeps conflicting with when I want to release it!'” he laughs. “I was like, ‘Fuck dude, why didn’t you tell me?’ He says, ‘Fuck, Taylor – you just got too much shit!’
“It’s sounding like he’s got a release date that he can finally lock in, and I have promised him that I won’t release anything that will ruin that.
“I think it’s going to be next year – finally, man!”

CHVRCHES announce 10th anniversary reissue of debut album
CHVRCHES will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their debut album, The Bones of What You Believe, with a reissue due out October 13th.
The anniversary edition will feature four previously-unheard songs and five live recordings from 2013. Ahead of its release, the band have shared new single “Manhattan.”
“It feels quite strange that Bones is almost a decade old,” vocalist Lauren Mayberry said in a statement. “In some ways, it’s like it just happened, but also like that era was a lifetime ago. We are very grateful to all the fans who gave that album a special place in their heart, and still show us so much kindness today.”
