Video: Blonde-Haired Corey Taylor Performs Slipknot’s “Wait and Bleed” Unmasked for the First Time


Corey Taylor, The Best Part of Waking Up™, is on tour with his solo band at the moment performing a bunch of songs from last year’s release, CMFT, with a handful of Slipknot and Stone Sour tunes sprinkled in. Since Corey performs unmasked during his solo shows, the internet is freaking out over the fact that he played Slipknot’s 1999 hit “Wait and Bleed” unmasked for the first time ever at a show last week in North Dakota. Could we verify such a claim? Of course we could. Do we care enough to put in the effort? No way! If the internet says so, it must be true. And nothing involving Sir Taylor himself is ever worth doubting.

More interesting than the performance itself: Corey Taylor is blonde now! THIS is the hard-hitting news we truly care about fact-checking. And yes, we can see it: his hair is, in fact, blonde in the clip. You can give it a watch below.

Slipknot have been working on a new album this year and are eyeing late 2021 or early 2022 for a release. They will go on a massive North American tour with Killswitch Engage, Fever 333 and Code Orange later this year unless Covid has other plans. Dates:
