SLIPKNOT's JOEY JORDISON: New Stuff Is "Pretty F**king Brutal"

SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison recently spoke to Rolling Stone magazine about the group's forthcoming third full-length album, which the band will begin work on early next year for a late 2003 release through Roadrunner Records.
According to Jordinson, SLIPKNOT have amassed material left over from the Iowa sessions as well as a host of new songs. "It's pretty fucking brutal still," he said. "If you like 'People = Shit', you're gonna like our new stuff. SLIPKNOT has the SLAYER mentality: You know exactly what you're getting into when you buy our fucking record."
In the same article, Joey refused to dispel the rumors that the next album will be SLIPKNOT's last.
"The thing with this band is it's so extreme and it's so special and it's something you can't keep recreating over and over," he said. "We're not a formulated band. We have our certain thing that we do. Each album is a progression from the last -- something's heavier, or there's something a little more twisted or atmospheric about the new one than the last. But there's gonna be a limit to how far we can go with it. It might be two more albums, maybe three, maybe one, I don't know."
Meanwhile, in the current issue of Britain's Metal Hammer magazine, SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn "The Clown" Crahan revealed that he may soon be helping ONE MINUTE SILENCE frontman Brian "Yap" Barry with an upcoming spoken-word album that he singer has planned. "Me and Yap are good friends and I'd like to do some things with him, get on a tour bus, me and Yap, and may bring the MURDERDOLLS [SLIPKNOT/STATIC-X supergroup] and just go up and down the [UK] causing mayhem."
On whether all of these side projects (i.e. STONE SOUR, MURDERDOLLS, Crahan/Yap] would cast a question mark over the integrity of the band, Shawn commented: "I can't talk for anyone else ? it's not my place to ? but they'll know if what they do is affecting SLIPKNOT. And if they do, they'll have to fuckin' answer to The Clown, because The Clown is always straight-up and will tell it to your face the way it is. If I've got a problem with someone or something, I'll fuckin' let them know. That's why everyone hates me.";jsessionid=PMCEGIGNKEKK?storyId=186

No Primer Is An Island
Primer 55 have now parted ways with their label Island Records, a statement was issued by band guitarist Bobby Burns on the matter and is as follows:
"FREE AT LAST! I'm happy to finally say that P55 has now parted ways with Island records, for good, and for ever. This would bum most bands out to hear this kind of news but I'm happy as fuck and I feel like a big weight has been lifted off my shoulders... I'm free, and I feel free. Here's the bad news, this site will be shut down at some point in the next few weeks so I'll be trying to find another way for us to hang out and talk with each other.. P55 will now be on a VERY long hiatus until we all sit and figure out what we need or should be doing with our lives.. I on the other hand will be putting my heart and soul back into BEAUTIFUL for the rest of the year I'm sure. I live for music and must continue to make music and I will. But anyways, stay close to the site over the next few days as I will be posting as much info and news for you all as I can..
The tour ended in Brookfield Ohio the night before last, had some fun onstage with the Color Red dudes then headed home, where I sit in front of my computer right now.
Burns also posted the following update on his aforementioned forthcoming new project Beautiful:
"Hey, got back to work on BEAUTIFUL today so I have to say it was a good day. Like Ive said before I ended up throwing out all the original stuff I had at first and started over fresh.. Some of the new song titles are : ECHO / WHAT IS COOL? / EYE TO EYE / DOWN / AT THE END OF THE DAY / PLAYING THE CLOWN / CRAZY FOR NOW / and fuck it, I can't think of the rest... Anyways, it's going great.. I'll keep you all posted and should be up soon... So check in from time to time..."

Mindless Self Indulgence have announced an October 08th release date through Uppity Cracker for their forthcoming live EP, "Alienating Our Audience".

Also included on the disc will be an enhanced portion consisting of 2 videos from the bands side project The Left Rights. Speaking of which, the Left Rights, an alter-ego group of Mindless Self Indulgence, will be releasing their debut album through Uppity Cracker on September 24th. The effort is said to consist of material "too bizarre" to be released under the Mindless Self Indulgence moniker. As a result of both releases, Mindless Self Indulgence will be having a release party show at the Irving Plaza in New York City, NY on October 08th. The group are expected to debut a wealth of never before played material during the show.
