Showing no signs of slowing, Slipknot plans to enter the studio sometime in the first half of 2011.

“It’s already in motion,” says Jordison who as of late cancelled his band Murderdolls‘ Violent Night, Deadly Night tour set to begin December 3, due to “an unforeseeable family emergency,” tells “It’s definitely exciting. It’s a little emotional, of course, but I think it’s going to be really, really cool and I think it’s gonna be a really, really great record because everyone’s really involved in the process.”

Joey states that he and his bandmates are going over songs for the follow-up to 2008’s “All Hope is Gone,” and he expects Slipknot to enter the studio mid-2011. “It’s going to be a little interesting,” he admits, “but I think it’s gonna be a healing process for all of us. Slipknot is not going anywhere. We’re a family, and losing a family member sucks. You can’t help that, but you need to move on, and I think that what we’re gonna do might be the most powerful thing that we’ve ever created.”

Slipknot will not replace late bassist Paul Gray, who passed away in May of 2010. On stage,  “we’ll have a bass player that’s right next to me, to the right behind the stage, to lock in with me. But there’s no one right now who will go on stage.”
