Congratulations are in order for SLIPKNOT guitarist Mick Thomson and his girlfriend Stacy Riley, who got married yesterday (Friday, October 5).
SLIPKNOT wrapped up their headlining stint on this year's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in early August and headlined its own festival, Knotfest, later that same month in Pacific Junction, Iowa and in Somerset, Wisconsin.
SLIPKNOT's greatest-hits package, "Antennas To Hell", sold more than 16,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 18 on The Billboard 200 chart. The set consists of 19 songs from the band's four major label studio albums, as well as live performances of "The Heretic Anthem" and "Purity", plus a remix of "My Plague". A 17-track bonus disc, "(sic)nesses: Live At The Download Festival 2009", is also included in the package.
The collection is the first release from SLIPKNOT since the passing of bassist Paul Gray in 2010.
SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor recently confirmed that the group has been "putting together demos" for its fifth major label album, which it expects to begin recording within the next couple of years.
