Corey Taylor will not be touring this year. The Slipknot frontman announced Friday, “ with a heavy heart “, that he was abandoning his next series of concerts to concentrate on his health.

It is a representation of the situation we currently find ourselves in as a nation, country and people”he said about the visual of “ Beyond “. “ The fact that no one accepts that Americans look different, talk different, love differently is completely ridiculous. So this video is a journey from today’s America to today’s America, because like it or not, this is America, man. »
