It’s the New Year, and like many of us, Corey Taylor is making his New Year’s resolutions. So, what’s on Taylor’s mind? The Stone Sour and Slipknot frontman tells the magazine Kerrang! that he will “stop engaging trolls about politics on Twitter” for his 2018 New Year’s resolution.

Taylor, who has always been a well-spoken guy, actually wrote a book on politics, “America 51,” last year, and he often expresses his political views on Twitter. Taylor is exercising his right of freedom of speech, but some of his followers have tried to snap back at him on Twitter. It sounds like Taylor is determined to look the other way in 2018.

In the Kerrang! interview, Taylor concludes, “If something that you believe is right turns out to be wrong, you have to embrace that – you can’t just reject that out of spite. I’m one of the most wrong people on the planet, and I also have one of the biggest fucking mouths, so it’s one of the biggest lessons I’ve had to learn. It’s going to make you a better person to be on the better side of facts than the worst side of fiction.”

In other news, Taylor will remain busy with music in 2018. Stone Sour just wrapped up a very successful 2017 with a new album, the chart-topping “Hydrograd,” and plenty of tour dates. The band has a new batch of tour dates on target for this year, as well as some festival appearances, including Rock on the Range in Columbus, Ohio, in May. Meanwhile, Taylor’s other band, Slipknot, will likely stay quiet in 2018.
