Shawn 'Clown' Crahan Discusses Upcoming Slipknot Tour


Slipknot percussionist Shawn 'Clown' Crahan says he is feeling refreshed and ready to go for an album and touring cycle in the New Year.

"We're all ready to go. Everybody is so excited," he said in an interview Kerrang! Magazine.

Clown told Kerrang!that he is having the best time of his life in Slipknot. "I'm blessed to be here, and I still have a band and art form that I love more than anything. They're my friends. We've lost some, we've gained some, but we're all still here and we've learned a lot. The music is on fire, the art, I feel, means something to people - and it hasn't always felt that way for me," he added.

"A lot of that is just me slowing down: relaxing, and trying to have a better time, and having a little fun. But I'm still me and I'm still Clown, and I'm getting older. I don't see the worst in a lot of the things I used to fight for. I'm just in a good place, and I want to come out on top for myself," said the co-founder of the Grammy Award-winning heavy metal band.

Slipknot's follow-up to the 2014 album, .5: The Gray Chapter, is due to be released later this year.

The band has scheduled several festival dates in June and July.
