COREY TAYLOR Offers First Tease of Solo Material
We're obviously very excited about this new Corey Taylor solo album. Earlier this morning, we learned the Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman would have some guest spots on the album from hip hop stars Tech N9ne and Kid Bookie.
This morning, Taylor shared a short tease of the first single's music video, and we get about a riff's worth of material.

The video also looks to feature the Cherry Bombs, a dance troupe run by Taylor's wife, Alicia Dove.
The album is tentatively due out this September. All we know otherwise is that Taylor's backing band is guitarists Christian Martucci (Stone Sour) and Zach Throne, bassist Jason Christopher (Prong), and drummer Dustin Schoenhofer (Walls of Jericho).
In a previous interview, Taylor noted the album will feature about 13 songs, even though the band's plan is to record 25.
“…We did thirteen originals. We recorded seven covers, and then we did six acoustic versions of the originals that we put together. Or [maybe] it’s five. I can never keep that straight. Maybe it’s six [covers] and six [acoustic versions] — I can’t remember. All I know is that we did an insane amount of work in two and a half weeks — something that we thought was gonna take two months — and we destroyed it. We were doing a song a day. And we got done, and we were, like, ‘Eh, okay. What are we gonna do now?’ Everything has come together so quickly that it’s crazy.”
