With a new tour kicking off in June and a new album slated to drop in August, it’s an exciting time to be a Slipknot fan. (That is, of course, unless the ongoing lawsuit between Chris Fehn and his bandmates hasn’t severely bummed you out!) One of the most exciting aspects of each new Slipknot album is the reveal of their new masks. We’re especially excited to see what FX guru Tom Savini has designed for frontman Corey Taylor.
Unless the band releases some images sooner, we’re likely to get our first look at Slipknot’s 2019 masks when the hard rockers hit Jimmy Kimmel Live on Friday, May 17th as the evening’s musical guests! While we’re anxious to see the new look and hear some new tunes, it’ll be a bummer if the band appears without Fehn, as it’ll be the first time the percussionist has been excluded from the line-up in over two decades.
Are you excited to check out Slipknot on Jimmy Kimmel Live a couple of Fridays from now? Are you stoked about the band’s upcoming tour and album (even if you’re still a bit bummed about the Chris Fehn situation)? Let us know in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
