SLIPKNOT: Singles Going Steady?

Slipknot percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan says he could see a path where the band could skip making albums and just release singles.

The End, So Far is the final album in the deal they signed with Roadrunner Records so they're free agents. Crahan tells NME, "I always thought, 'What would it be like if Slipknot was big enough that we weren't held to albums?' Let's say Clown could convince you, 'Hey, instead of waiting two years for 12 songs, I'm gonna give you one song every month.' So in reality, I'm shaving a year off for the same thing...

"You have to go with me on this journey, but what I promise you is, there's artwork that goes with it, there's utility that goes with it, it's cheaper than what a normal individual song would be… And it's gone through all the filters -- it's gone through the band, it's gone through Corey Taylor, it's gone through a professional mixer and masterer -- no avenues have been chopped up, it's all business as usual. And we want to do this because I think it's time for you, our fans, to get everything."
