Slipknot is set to make a long awaited return to UK arenas in January 2015 with their ‘Prepare For Hell’ tour.
Frontman Corey Taylor muses: “The UK has always been very special for us. 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 on October 20.
