SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor will be hosting a concert at The Val Air Ballroom in West Des Moines, Iowa on Saturday, July 15, featuring FACECAGE (Iowa), MINDRITE (Iowa), BLACK FLOOD DIESEL (Minnesota), NARCOTIC SELF (Nebraska), BROKEN IMAGE (Colorado) and SIDEWISE (Kansas)FACECAGE is an Iowa-based metal band described by Taylor as containing "the heaviness of SEPULTURA, the groove of [BLACK] SABBATH, the dark melodies of the Midwest and the drive of one hundred bands from either coast." The group's third release, entitled "III", was produced by Corey and will be the first to be issued through Taylor's new Iowa-based label. Last summer, Taylor was approached by longtime friend and collaborator Denny Harvey about the possibility of producing FACECAGE's next album. Harvey and his (515) Management Group have managed FACECAGE since 2003. Said Harvey: "Corey has been a friend and confidant to FACECAGE for some time and he was ecstatic to be a part of this. He has watched FACECAGE go from playing clubs and paying their dues to becoming a Midwestern success story. This is really the next step for the band and a chance for them to work together, something Corey has been interested in for awhile now." FACECAGE has independently released two albums so far: "Facecage" (2001) and "II" (2004).
