Earlier this week, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor defended the COVID-19 safety measures that have been implemented on the band’s ongoing Knotfest Roadshow in the US.

“All the bands are super rad and so stoked to be back on the road,” Taylor said. “And we have such stringent restrictions that everybody is really, really happy about it. We’re doing our best to kind of set the standard so other bands, other tours can kind of come around and follow the example.”

He continued: “Basically, [we’re playing] Live Nation-only venues, which require all staff to be vaccinated. It also means that at the gigs, you can either show a vaccination card or a negative test to come in. And it basically means that you’re masked at all times backstage. If someone pops positive, they’re quarantined and they stay behind.”

Slipknot returned to the stage on September 4 after an 18 month break to play the Rocklahoma festival, where Taylor also debuted his new mask.

The band’s last album ‘We Are Not Your Kind’ was released in August 2019 and Corey Taylor recently confirmed that new music would be arriving soon. The band will be hitting the road next year for a series of tour dates in Europe.
