Slipknot Continues Touring into Fall
Slipknot turns 10 this year and to celebrate they are extending their expansive 2009 tour into the fall. The masked metal marauders will be on tour for three weeks beginning with Seattle, Washington on October 10. The fun will wrap on Halloween as they play the Pearl in Las Vegas.
Released in August, Slipknot’s most recent album “All Hope is Gone” was its first since the release of 2004’s “Vol 3: (The Subliminal Verses)”. On September 8, the band celebrated its 10-year anniversary by releasing a two-disc set highlighting Slipknot’s eponymous debut, 10 additional tracks as well as a live concert and documentary.
Frontman Corey Taylor will be going to work on a solo album at the conclusion of the Slipknot tour. He told Billboard that there were a lot of songs that he wanted to record that don’t match the vibe of either Slipknot or his side band Stone Sour. He described the material as “kind of a cross between the Foo Fighters and Social D, with some Johnny Cash mixed in.” He even implied that country would be part of the mix, drawing from his Iowa roots.
