Forget a low resolution webcam and a couple of desktop speakers capturing a messy bedroom…To mark the release of his debut solo record CMFT, out this Friday, 2nd October, Corey Taylor has announced not just another live stream, but a live stream extravaganza that’s set to have heads banging and ears ringing all throughout this weekend.
Taking to the stage of LA’s iconic venue The Forum, Corey Taylor, flanked with his full band, will unleash a full production pay-per-view spectacle fit with pyro, stage dances and a whole lot of live energy our souls so desperately crave.
Forum Or Against ‘Em will be a global live streamed event, with Australia allocated the very fresh kick off time of 7am on Saturday, 3rd October. But if you aren’t a morning person, don’t fret, the performance will be on display digitally for 72 hours giving Australian fans plenty of time to get their heads around it – And the long weekend doesn’t won’t hurt either.
The event gives fans plenty to sink their teeth into with an array of ticket bundles offering plenty of curiosities including merch, entry to catch a cheeky solo acoustic performance from Corey, and the chance to speak with him directly with a meet & greet option.
Speaking of the live stream, Taylor states “I’ve been saying since the beginning I’d find a way to bring this music and this band to the people. And I’m honoured that The Forum let us do just that. It’s CMFT in its entirety. It’s songs I’ve shared over the years. It’s a celebration, and I’m so stoked to party with all of you.”
Speaking to his personal history of the venue, and the situation surrounding Forum Or Against Em, Blunt Magazine grabbed a cheeky, and exclusive, Q&A with Corey, which you can catch below, with ticketing info underneath.
Despite having toured the world for decades, and released enough albums to sink a ship whether as part of Slipknot or Stone Sour, CMFT has proven to the world just how little we really knew about the heavy music savant. The rollercoaster ride through the imagination of Taylor sends listeners to all corners of the rock universe, including many places you’d never expect to find Corey Taylor.
As such, it’s tough to put a label on CMFT, but if we had to, we’d label CMFT has a hefty dose of fun; a beat we could all get down to right now.
