Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has performed the band’s iconic track ‘Wait and Bleed’ solo for the first time.
Last year, the Slipknot frontman took a break from the mask-wearing band to release his debut solo album CMFT. Since then, he had stayed clear of the group’s first-ever single released back in 1999, but on Thursday at the Fargo Brewing Company in North Dakota, he gave the song is its ghoulish mask-free debut.
At the series of solo live shows, Taylor has also continued to pay tribute to his former bandmate, Joey Jordison, who died unexpectedly in his sleep on July 26th.
On stage, Taylor has been presenting an image of himself, Jordison and another late bandmate Paul Gray who died of a morphine and fentanyl overdose 11 years ago.
Taylor has also recently spoken out about the dangers of vaccine scepticism. Telling Consequence Heavy: “People act like getting a vaccine is signing a deal with the devil.”
Adding: “It’s been so politicised and spun out of control in these conspiratorial echo chambers that people forget that you can go find all the info you want online to educate yourself about everything about these vaccines.”
