Slipknot’s Clown might be retiring

Slipknot’s Clown might be retiring
The news that Slipknot are working on album 6 has been tempered by their Clown suggesting he might retire sooner rather than later.
Shawn Crahan, who dons the mask in question, was speaking on The Jasta Show when he got into what it’s like working at the moment, and it gets very heavy.
“I just spent four months thinking about my life and where I’m at now because I’m at a real honest place of admitting of what I don’t want to be… A lot of it is bringing all this emotion to art and music. And honestly, this music that we’re writing right now is just like the proof of looking inward and being able to put the first foot down and say, ‘We’re gonna do something for ourselves and write’… So we’ve been writing and this music is coming out… I feel weird things are coming but it’s always like that for the guys like us, we get involved in our records and sky all of the sudden changes.”
Which is all great, but then he says this: “And we got some stuff man. I feel like this could be it for me. We’re all getting older. I never like telling anyone like, ‘Hey this is it!’ Because I don’t have to, fuck everyone… But like I’ve said, I’ve been reflecting and there’s a lot of hard things that I could say about friends, brothers… We’re good, but it’s a big world. I’ve done enough work, I’ve produced and done remixes and art and performed, I’ve done enough where while I was in it none of it was registered… This could be it for me. I’ve done enough work.”
