Taylor Reacts to Jordison Departure News, and Studio Plans for Halestorm and Chevelle

The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ


Taylor reacts to Jordison departure news


So, what direction will Slipknot be going now that the band is moving on without drummer Joey Jordison? In a recent interview with a radio station out of Minneapolis, front man Corey Taylor says that he can’t really talk about it right now because it’s so fresh and there are a lot of things going on behind the scenes that the public doesn’t know about, so, quote, “legally and respectfully, I can’t say a lot about it.” Taylor says he can confirm that “we have parted ways with Joey and as soon as we can say something, we will, but we’re trying to protect him, trying to protect us, just making sure that we do everything right because that’s what we would expect from ourselves and what we would expect from the fans.” Taylor also says he understands fans are “chomping at the bit” to find out what’s next. As for the next Slipknot album, Taylor says the remaining members are working on new material and getting stuff together. It was revealed late last week that Jordison would not be with the band moving forward. He also hasn’t been part of the current songwriting process, according to reports.


Studio plans for Halestorm and Chevelle


A couple of bands are heading into the studio to start laying down tracks for new albums. Halestorm will be cutting new tracks for their third album. After a full year out on the road supporting their album The Strange Case Of … , the band is taking a brief holiday break and then they’ll get back at it … jumping right into the creative process for their third record. Drummer Arejay Hale says the band will be locking themselves away for all of January to write the album. They’re not starting from scratch, as touring bands often do, they’ve been piecing things together while on the road.


Meanwhile Chevelle are also returning to the studio to lay down some cuts for a new album. In a post to the band’s Facebook page, a video of front man Pete Loeffler jamming on the guitar in the studio. There’s no word on when an new album will be out, but you can expect more videos of the in-studio action. This would be Chevelle’s seventh studio album.
