Corey Taylor Posts Knee Surgery Update, Will Perform with Slipknot This Week


Great news, everyone: Corey Taylor’s double knee surgery last Friday was successful, meaning there’s reason enough for MetalSucks to continue operating!

In a series of Instagram posts over the weekend (embedded below), The Most Important Human to Ever Exist touted the procedure’s success, promising to make his planned performances later this week with Slipknot on Jimmy Kimmel Live and his solo show (with his “& Friends” band) in Garden Grove, CA. He also showed close-ups of the bandages covering the surgical scars on his swollen knees, proving that even Gods amongst men bleed (and wait).

The Kimmel performance on Friday, May 17th will see the official unveiling of Slipknot’s masks for their upcoming album cycle. The appearance will be extremely exciting for Slipknot fans but even more so for your MetalSucks editors, who are now assured many eons more of Slipknot coverage to keep the lights on at the MS Mansion.

Slipknot’s new album will come out on August 9th, with rumors circulating it will be titled We Are Not Your Kind. Slipknot will tour the U.S. later this summer with Volbeat, Behemoth and Gojira. Dates below:
