COREY TAYLOR On SLIPKNOT's New Stage Show: 'It's Been Challenging Because Of My Knee Surgery'

SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor was interviewed by Rika Brune of SRF 3 at this year's Greenfield Festival, which is taking place June 13-15 in Interlaken, Switzerland. You can now watch the chat below.

Speaking about SLIPKNOT's new stage show, Taylor said: "It's been challenging because of my knee surgery. But at the same time, every show has kind of gotten better and better. And the new setup is so cool that it makes you want to run around it. It's a completely different setup than we've ever done in the past. There's crazy video screens going on, there's treadmills, there's fire — all kinds of crazy cool stuff going on. It makes me wanna run around and check it out, to be honest. Anything that encourages me to kind of go around and do more, I think, is really good."

Taylor underwent surgery on both knees last month and recovered in time to appear with SLIPKNOT on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on May 17. He also played a solo show two days later in Garden Grove, California.

SLIPKNOT played its first full concert in two and a half years on June 7 at Rockfest in Hyvinkää, Finland.

The band's European tour will run through a July 5 appearance at the Resurrection Fest in Spain. It will be followed by the "Knotfest Roadshow" headline tour of North America. VOLBEAT, GOJIRA and BEHEMOTH will join as special guests on all dates. Produced by Live Nation, the 29-city outing will kick off July 26 in Mountain View, California at Shoreline Amphitheater and continue through September 8 where it will conclude with a performance at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, Texas.

The group's sixth studio album, "We Are Not Your Kind", will arrive on August 9. It has been preceded by the release of a new single, "Unsainted".
