The multi-platinum, Grammy-Award-winning, masked beast that is SLIPKNOT is set to make a long awaited return to the UK & Ireland this January 2015 with their arresting ‘Prepare For Hell’ tour. Check out their wonderfully shocking video for ‘The Devil In I’ .
SLIPKNOT’s frontman Corey Taylor explains: “It has always been very special for us over there. In a lot of ways, it’s where this insanity began. So, for this tour, we decided to try and hit as many places as we could – not only England, but Scotland and Wales as well. Technically Ireland is Europe, but we’re going there too. We’re coming back for the people who started this for us: that would be YOU. Prepare yourselves… Hell is coming.”The incendiary band’s first new music in over six years, the fiercely anticipated, ‘.5: The Gray Chapter’ is set for release this Friday October 17th in Ireland and can be pre-ordered at iTunes, via the Warner Music Ireland Store and as a limited Exclusive CD + T-Shirt Box from HMV and Xtra-vision HERE.Special guests on the tour are SLIPKNOT’s longtime friends and musical brothers, KORN. An opening band will be confirmed in due course.
