SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR Singer COREY TAYLOR To Release 'You're Making Me Hate You' Book In June

Da Capo Press, a member of the Perseus Books Group, has set a June 30, 2015 release date for "You're Making Me Hate You: An Uncommon Guide To Common Sense", the new book from SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor.

Official book description: "In the tradition of the late great George Carlin, New York Times bestselling author and lead singer of SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR Corey Taylor sounds off in hilarious fashion about the many vagaries of modern life that piss him off.

"Whether it's people's rude behavior in restaurants and malls, the many indignities of air travel, eye-searingly terrible fashion choices, dangerously clueless drivers, and — most of all — the sorry state of much modern music, Taylor's humor and insight cover civil society's seeming decline — sparing no one along the way, least of all himself.

"Holding nothing back and delivered in Taylor's inimitable voice, 'You're Making Me Hate You' is a cathartic critique of the strange world in which we find ourselves."

During a recent appearance on the Nerdist podcast, Taylor stated about "You're Making Me Hate You": "It's fucking brutal. It's just me basically trashing everyone. I submitted subtitle for it — 'cause they make me put subtitles on 'em — and they're, like, 'You're gonna get sued for that.' And I'm, like, 'Well, that's the one I want.' And they're, like, 'No. This time we're putting our foot down. You can't use that one.' It was basically, like… I can't even say it. They're gonna get so mad at me. It was 'You're Making Me Hate You (Or How Justin Bieber Sucked A Million Dicks To Make His Money)'. And they wouldn't let me fucking use it. With an asterisk, obviously. And then at the bottom, 'Obviously, I don't know if it's true, but this is what I believe.' And they wouldn't let me do it. Anyway… I'll leave it in. Fuck it. I don't give a shit."

Taylor's last book, "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven", in July 2013 landed at No. 23 on the New York Times "Hardcover Non-fiction" best sellers list, three positions higher than his first memoir, 2011's "Seven Deadly Sins".

Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio last year that his next book may be a collection of columns he's written over the past 12 years for U.K. magazine Rock Sound, while his fourth book may be his first attempt at a novel.
