Rocklahoma in Pryor, Oklahoma was the site of the first Slipknot show in 18 months. At the first show on September, 4 2021, fans got a load of Lead singer, Corey Taylor’s, new mask. A mask that he has been working on for months with horror icon Tom Savini, “Friday The 13th,” “Dawn Of The Dead,” “From Dusk ‘Til Dawn,” “Cool as Hell,” and many more. Take a look at the new mask below. Rocklahoma posted pics of Corey in the mask on their socials. The rest of the band revealed their new masks back in 2019 during their performance on Jimmy Kimmel.
For Taylor and Slipknot, the mask is a part of the art. To them it’s like changing hairstyles for an album and tour cycle. Something for the fans to look forward to. This one did not disappoint.
Back in May Taylor spoke about the masks during a radio interview, he said,
“The mask has been a part of us forever. The mask is king. And for us, especially people like me and Clown and the guys in the band that really allow those masks to evolve, it’s important for it to be a reflection of who we are in that music. And I can tell you that the mask I’m working on is very disturbing. It’s gonna be hard to look at. And it’ll probably be my favorite mask that I’ve ever put together. It’s little bits and pieces of things that have intrigued me, of masks that I’ve had in the past. And it’s gonna have a devil-may-care kind of terror to it, let’s put it that way.”
Slipknot’s “Knotfest Roadshow” is coming. Killswitch Engage, Fever 333, and Code Orange from Pittsburgh, Pa will provide support. The 28 date tour is a Live Nation production. You’ll remember we told you that Live Nation has announced that all Live Nation shows will require proof of vaccination for entry. The first show is at Tinley Park, Illinois on September 28, and wraps up in Arizona in early November.
