Today, GRAMMY® Award-winning, multi-platinum singer-songwriter, actor, and New York Times best-selling author, COREY TAYLOR (Slipknot, Stone Sour) releases his long-awaited second solo studio album, CMF2.
CMF2, Taylor’s first album for BMG and the first on his own label imprint, Decibel Cooper Recordings, was produced by Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Steel Panther, Amon Amarth), who also produced Stone Sour’s 2017 Hydrograd, as well as Taylor’s solo debut release, CMFT. The 13-track opus packs the energy, experimentation, and forthrightness that’s defined a career which has seen him sell more than 12 million albums with his GRAMMY® Award-winning band Slipknot and several million with chart-toppers Stone Sour. Throughout CMF2, Taylor sings and plays lead and rhythm guitar, piano, and mandolin.
The official video supporting the anthemic new song ‘We Are The Rest’ was shot out in California’s Mojave Desert. Captured through the lens of director Dale ‘Rage’ Resteghini (Hatebreed, Trivium), the clip finds Taylor and his bandmates situated in a post-apocalyptic, Mad Max meets 90’s punk rock skatepark atmosphere, surrounded by hundreds of raucous audience members.
Watch the official video for ‘We Are The Rest’ below.
Taylor and his band return to UK shores this November for a string of shows around the country and a handful of European dates. Full itinerary and ticket info below.
