Maniacs TV conducted an interview with SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor and percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan during this year’s Soundwave festival in Australia. You can now watch the chat below.
Speaking about SLIPKNOT‘s current live show, Taylor said: “We put together a pretty good show that we’ve been touring all over the world right now. And the cool thing is that we’ve got three different rotating sets that we’ve been playing. Other than that, we’ve been blowing stuff up, we’ve got a giant goathead, and then there’s just us, which is crazy enough as it is.”
As previously reported, SLIPKNOT guitarist Mickeal “Mick” Thomson was charged with disorderly conduct after an incident last month in which he and his brother were involved in a knife fight with each other and arrested. According to the Des Moines Register, a police investigation concluded that both the 41-year-old Thomson and his 35-year-old brother Andrew were responsible for the March 11 confrontation.
The two brothers were both charged with disorderly conduct by fighting or violent behavior in a public place.
The two siblings have declined to press charges against each other.
SLIPKNOT will launch a spring U.S. trek on April 25 in Fort Myers, Florida, ending on May 16 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
SLIPKNOT is touring behind its new album, “.5: The Gray Chapter”, which came out in October 2014 and topped the Billboard album chart six years after the release of its predecessor, “All Hope Is Gone”.
SLIPKNOT recently released a live video for the song “Custer”, shot at 2014’s Knotfest in Devore, California.
