Corey Taylor to appear on QI

The hard rock frontman famed for his times in Slipknot and Stone Sour is now adding QI guest to his CV. Corey Taylor will be featured on an upcoming episode of the BBC show alongside comedians Aisling Bea, Alan Davies and Ross Noble, and the shows new host Sandi Toksvig who took over from long time host Stephen Fry recently.

The singer once tweeted about his desire to appear on the show as a new years goal back in 2013 and recently appeared on the No such thing as a fish Podcast which is hosted by QI researchers. Aisling Bea tweeted an image of Corey and his new QI friends with the caption “Dear Slipknot fans, we’ve taken your leader and removed his mask.”

QI is currently filming series “N” and we look forward to watching it, especially to see what one of the most charismatic and interesting figures in rock gets up to in his episode. We think he will be an interesting fit to the show, especially in an episode alongside someone like the “king of random” Ross Noble.

Corey Taylor Announces One-Off UK Solo Show

Corey Taylor has announced details of a one-off UK solo show.

The Slipknot / Stone Sour frontman is set to headline London’s KOKO on May 8 with tickets going on sale at 9am this Friday (April 22) – You can purchase tickets through Live Nation or Ticketmaster.

Talking about the show Corey said: “Everyone’s been asking me when I was going to come back to the UK and do some acoustic stuff- honestly, it’s not because I didn’t want to!! So since I’m going to be there doing some stuff in May, I decided we’d make one happen!! And I cannot WAIT!!”

This is certainly something us at Rebellious Noise have been talking about happening for a while, and to say we’re a tad excited would be an understatement!

Download to become first major UK festival to go cashless

It has been announced via the official Download Festival website that this year festival goers will be experiencing a whole new concept that will aim at cutting those annoying festival queues and to better security. The announcement comes after a flurry of rumours on the matter, which has been taken both positively and negatively by festival goers. But, I am sure that we can all agree that festival queues suck.

The scheme will involve festival goers topping up their new Dog tag wristbands with spending money that can then be used on everything from Hot Dogs to Lamb…of God merch. The new payment system will work across the whole festival and wristbands won’t limit those who feel a bit trigger happy with their cash either, as there will be several ways to top up your virtual purse. The festival will be full of top up points and the opportunity to top up via the Download website and Download app with the announcement of free Wi-Fi for festival goers.

This should save a lot of time currently being wasted in queues being put into more mosh pit time. Now all we need is something to cut the toilet queues.

For more information, head to:

Download Festival takes place at Donington Park between June 12th – 14th.

Slipknot Guitarist, Mick Thompson, Stabbed in Head!

Slipknot guitarist Mick Thomson and his brother Andrew were transported to a hospital Wednesday (March 11) when they both suffered injuries in an early morning knife fight.

According to the Des Moines Register, Clive police reported that Mick and his brother Andrew were fighting and armed with knives in a skirmish that spilled over onto the front yard of a home on Northwest 129th Street at 4:25AM. When officers arrived, they found the brothers believed to be intoxicated with serious but non-life threatening stab wounds. The guitarist was reportedly stabbed in the back of his head.

The brothers were transported in separate ambulances to the hospital and no charges had been filed against either sibling at press time. It is not known how Thomson’s injury will affect Slipknot going forward, though the band is currently on a break from the road.

Slipknot have been touring in support of their #5: The Gray Chapter album and will resume their touring April 25 at the Fort Rock Festival in Fort Myers, Florida. The spring is filled with festival appearances as the band is also booked for Welcome to Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Northern Invasion and Rock on the Range.

The band heads to Europe for a brief run through Europe’s major festivals before returning stateside and launching the “Prepare for Hell” tour with Lamb of God, Bullet for My Valentine and Motionless in White this summer.

We will of course keep you posted should we find out any further information.

Jim Root Reveals he was fired from Stone Sour… Over The Phone!

Slipknot’s Jim Root has revealed that he was fired from Stone Sour over the phone…

Earlier in the year, the former Stone Sour guitarist sat out of the band’s North American headline tour to concentrate on writing music for Slipknot’s .5: The Gray Chapter – but then it was confirmed in May that Jim would no longer be part of Stone Sour at all.

Now, the Slipknot axe-man has revealed that he found out the news over the phone, as well as stating that he still hasn’t spoken to certain members of Stone Sour. Jim tells Australia’s Music Feeds: “I’ve said that to friends and everything but I still haven’t talked to certain guys in that band either, so I really don’t know what they were thinking or a hundred percent of the reason why they made the decision that they made. I mean, it was basically put to me over a phone call and I thought that was pretty lame.”

Jim has made it clear that all is well with Slipknot, though, as the Iowan metal titans gear up to release their fifth full-length – the follow-up to 2008′s All Hope Is Gone. “Life in the Slipknot camp is pretty damn good right now,” he says. “I used to be really hesitant and reluctant and resistant to say such things [laughs].”

The ‘Knot’s new record, .5: The Gray Chapter, is out on October 20 via RoadRunner Records.

Slipknot create huge buzz with release of new track ‘The Negative One’

After teasing us for a number of weeks now, Slipknot have finally released their new single, their first in six years and the first since the death of Bassist Paul Gray and the departure of Drummer Joey Jordison.
Despite ‘The Negative One’ being the first song without Paul and Joey the band still got a monumental buzz going with a series of cryptic teasers. Speaking to BBC Radio, vocalist Corey Taylor offered up info on ‘The Negative One.’ Stating “People don’t know what to expect from us and that’s kinda the way we like it. The great thing is that … The Negative One’ isn’t our single, Taylor says. “That was just a gift for the fans, like we wanted them to hear a piece of the album. The single comes out in a few weeks and it’s completely different. It’s more melodic, but it’s dark, it’s powerful man, it’s something different, people are going to lose their minds when they hear that.” Corey goes on to say, “It’s got the spirit. The thing I love is that everyone’s reactions are very, very similar. They love the fact that there’s new Slipknot out. They also love the fact that it feels like old school meets new school. Like you can feel the original craziness of the early stuff but you can tell that the evolution has happened. And that’s kind of what we were shooting for, ya know? Remember I said I wanted the album to feel like a cross between ‘Iowa’ and ‘Vol. 3′ and I think we did that. Wait till you hear the whole album, because this story is so deep and so honest and so crazy that people are going to lose their minds when they hear it.”
Slipknot’s video for ‘The Negative One,’ which was directed by percussionist Shawn Crahan, is creepy as hell. Mixed with dark imagery and a terrifying female character, the visual element adds to the full experience of ‘The Negative One.’ After weeks of Slipknot’s visual teases, we finally know where they came from!
You can see the unnerving video and listen to the track at the bands official website
