We haven’t heard from Corey Taylor in the last 12 minutes, so what’s he up to? Apparently planning a once in a lifetime streaming event that will include Slipknot, Stone Sour, and solo stuff… and apparently a whole lot more. Here’s a trailer. And here’s a ticket link.
Icelandic black metal crew Auðn are releasing a new full-length on October 30th titled Vökudraumsins fangi. That will be out through Season of Mist, and a video for the first single, “Ljóstýra”, can be viewed immediately below.
Knotfest at Sea has been postponed indefinitely. The Slipknot festival was set to take place next month, before being rescheduled to August 2021. Now, however, we will cross our fingers and hope that it happens at some point in the future at all.
And here’s the confirmation we were looking for. Ihsahn has announced his next EP, Pharos, drops on September 11th. That will be out through Candlelight Records and you can check out the first single, “Spectre At The Feast”, immediately below.
Not the most surprising thing, but Rocklahoma 2020 has been canceled. The event, scheduled for Memorial Day weekend, made the announcement yesterday. Five Finger Death Punch, Slipknot, and Staind were the planned headliners.
Let’s begin with a tour. Those are always fun and easy. Exist have announced that they will be joining Monotheist and Replacire for a brief tour this coming February. Mostly east coast dates, which is good news for me.
In a huge development from this past weekend, Knotfest Mexico didn’t go so well.Slipknot had to cancel their headlining appearance because fans had broken the barricade directly in front of the stage. In response? Said fans lit stuff on fire. Yay! (And by yay I mean boooo.)
Currents dropped a new music video for “Poverty of Self” a couple days ago. Their second studio album will be out sometime next spring, but you can catch them on a few more European dates through the 7th. Anyway, enjoy the vid.
This is terrible news, but it’s reported that a Slipknot fan died after falling in the mosh pit at the Chicago-area stop on the Knotfest Roadshow. The exact cause is still to be determined, but witnesses noted that he looked totally fine leading up to the incident. Sad, sad stuff.
