Slipknot’s Current and Former Frontmen to Share Stage at Stone Sour Show
Slipknot fans may have their heads implode this week in Des Moines when Stone Sour plays at the local club Wooly's. That's because Slipknot's original singer, Anders Colsefni, will take the stage Monday night (Oct. 29) with his current band Painface to open the show for Corey Taylor's hit-making outfit.
Colsefni appeared on the Slipknot's 1996 demo, 'Mate Feed Kill Repeat,' before leaving the band a year later. The group recruited their current vocalist, Taylor, to take over after Colsefni's exit. Taylor is currently rocking with his other band Stone Sour, while Slipknot enjoys a bit a temporary hiatus.
In a posting at Painface's Facebook page, the group revealed, "Due to the amazingly gracious Corey Taylor, Painface has been asked to open for Stone Sour this Monday Oct. 29 at Wooley's. We are excited and proud to be able to support one of our favorite bands and fellow Des Moines musicians. The show is sold out but we hope that you hold up the horns in your heart for us if you can't be there. There will be more information to follow."
In addition to Painface, Blabbermouth reports that Colsefni recently made a guest appearance on Des Moines rock outfit Green Death's latest EP, 'Dawn of the Death,' which arrives digitally Oct. 30.
As for Taylor, Stone Sour is taking up plenty of his time. The band just released the first of their two-part 'House of Gold & Bones' album, and they are also plotting comic book and potential film companion pieces to go with the discs. After the performance at Wooly's, the group will spend most of the rest of the year on tour outside of the U.S.
