Singer Corey Taylor said that Slipknot still strives to present the best show possible to its fans: “We want to give so much to the people, you know. I mean we, you know, we grew up seeing the bands that really gave you 110 percent, really gave you their money’s worth, and we want to continue that. And that’s why we take everything so seriously and we work for utter perfection.”

The summer jaunt follows a brief spring run that Slipknot will launch on April 25th at the Fort Rock festival in Fort Myers, Florida, ending on May 16th in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The band is supporting its latest album, .5: The Gray Chapter, which came out in October.
