During a recent conversation on Kerrang Radio, Stone Sour and Slipknot’s lead vocalist, Corey Taylor, talked about his upcoming shows with Slipknot while hinting that their fans should start getting ready for some ‘massive‘ stuff that they’re planning.
Corey Taylor joined Slipknot back in 1997 and since then he has been climbing the ladder of fame as their lead vocalist. Taylor is often referred to as Slipknot’s ‘Number Eight‘ as the band follows a numbering scheme for all of its eight members, and it is said that Corey wanted number eight because it symbolizes infinity.
Besides his successful career with Slipknot, Corey recently started pursuing a career as a solo artist. On October 2, 2020, he released his debut solo album ‘CMFT,’ and approximately a month ago, he released the video for the third track ‘Samantha‘s Gone‘ of his new album which was highly appreciated by his fans.
In a recent interview, Corey Taylor expressed that although he’s been working on his solo career, this doesn’t in any way mean that he’s done with Slipknot. As you may recall. Slipknot had to reschedule their tour dates back in 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Some months ago, the band announced their updated tour dates and during his recent interview, Corey said that they haven‘t been canceled.
Fans were glad to hear this news as they had started getting anxious due to the cancelation of numerous concerts by other bands. Corey Taylor went on the excite his fans even more by saying aside from preparing for their upcoming tour, Slipknot also has ‘some stuff brewing’ and although he can’t talk about them yet, he said that it’s going to be ‘massive‘ and said that they’re going to announce more details in a month or so.
Here’s what Corey Taylor said in his recent interview:
“Slipknot is booked to tour America end of September. We are booked to go out, and we haven’t heard anything yet that it’s different. And we talk to Live Nation every week, we’re up to date on all of the different restrictions, not only in the States – but federally.
We’re, obviously, keeping an eye on everything and kind of going from there. Other than that, right now, there’s some stuff brewing that I can’t talk about – but it’s massive. I can say this: you will hear about it probably in the next month or so, let’s put it that way.”
