Slipknot recently wrapped up their joint Prepare for Hell tour with Korn but the masked metal act will continue to support their "devastating" new record .5: The Gray Chapter with a North American trek called Summer's Last Stand, where Corey Taylor and company will hit the nation's amphitheaters with Lamb of God and Bullet for My Valentine in tow. To celebrate their just-announced tour, Slipknot shared a live video of .5's "Custer" filmed live from their Knotfest this past October.
During a Prepare for Hell performance at London's Wembley Arena this January, Korn were joined onstage by members of Slipknot for a surprise cover of Beastie Boys' Ill Communication single "Sabotage." In a Q&A session with fans after announcing Summer's Last Stand, Taylor discussed how the Beasties cover happened.
"Well, me and Jonathan [Davis] did not come up with that idea, actually. That was [Korn bassist] Fieldy's idea," Taylor told fans (via Blabbermouth). "We had been kinda joking about doing something together at one of the shows, and Fieldy was, like, 'Why don't we just do 'Sabotage'?' We all kinda dug it, we got together, we jammed it out, and the rest is history."
The Summer's Last Stand tour will kick off July 24th at West Palm Beach, Florida's Cruzan Amphitheater and loop around the country before concluding September 5th at Dallas' Gexa Energy Pavilion. Tickets for the tour are on sale now.
