Corey Taylor's double middle fingers not towards you ... it's towards the ghosts
Corey Taylor is a busy dude. It seems more likely he’ll put out a new book before he puts out a new Slipknot album. The Slipknot/Stone Sour front man says that his next book will be about ghosts. Earlier this year he put out a book about being a sinner titled Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument about Born Bad or Damaged Good. The working titled for his new book about ghosts is A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven. Taylor says the book will be about his experiences with ghosts, which he claims will freak people out. There’s no expected release date for the new book yet, but we are expecting the second House of Gold and Bones album next year with a comic book released shortly thereafter. Plus there’s talks of a movie based on that concept album.
Tour details today
Flyleaf and Drowning Pool have hooked up to announce a new tour. The tour will be in February and March, but exact details of dates and cities have not yet been released. That’s expected out today. Flyleaf just released a new album but immediately changed singers. Drowning Pool also recently changed singers. They’re now on their 4th or 5th singer … I don’t know. I lose count.
Bloody goth metal show
If you’ve ever wanted to see a blood bath outside of a live Gwar show, this may be just what you need. Cradle of Filth, the super-goth metal band from the UK, is coming to the US with a date in Chicago at the House of Blues March 21st. They’ll be with The Faceless, Decapitated and The Agonist which sounds like a fun night of family entertainment.
Video game music
System of a Down front man Serj Tankian is taking a crack at writing the score for a video game. Tankian will be the composer for the music of the game Morning Star, which will be out Spring of 2013.
