Slipknot may be on hiatus as key members work on other projects but Shawn 'Clown' Crahan has revealed that the band has written "about 27 pieces of work" for possible inclusion on their next studio album.

Crahan spoke about the band's new music plans to NME via Teamrock. He revealed, "We have decided to do things differently. Our label had been bought and sold, people who used to give me advice are gone now, we're still standing. We're not going to wait around for Corey Taylor to say that he's ready - no one's going to wait for me to finish directing a movie. The same thing goes if someone wants to go out on tour with someone else.

"Every three or four months we've been getting together and we've been writing for up to 30 days. Currently, we have about 27 pieces of work - about seven or eight are completed. They're not completed songs, that's far from the truth. That's where people start fighting over Corey Taylor not being there or Jim Root wanting to do something else.

"We as artists have demanded that we get together every three or four months and blow our brains out with art. We've been trying to create as much art as possible."

He continued: "Our goal is to get to somewhere where it feels like we could have a double album. Whether or not we'll get to that, I have no idea.

"It's almost an impossible thing to arrive at because you have to have so much music and pick what's right. But I would like to have a double album and I would like to have a concept album.

"I've been speaking to Corey and Jim and we're not just going to 'do it,' we're not going to be contrived. It has to be right, it has to work for all of us."
