Corey Taylor will celebrate the release of his new solo record next month with a livestreaming performance.

Taylor will hold what is dubbed “Forum or Against ‘Em” Oct. 2.  The streaming performance will come live from The Forum in Los Angeles, CA.  The concert is in support of his forthcoming album CMFT, which is scheduled for release the same day through Roadrunner Records.

CMFT has produced three singles and companion videos in the form of ‘HWY 666,’ ‘CMFT Must Be Stopped (ft. Tech N9ne & Kid Bookie),’ and ‘Black Blue Eyes.’  Pre-orders for the album are open.

The set list for “Forum or Against ‘Em” is expected to feature songs that Taylor has crafted with Slipknot, Stone Sour and with his own solo project.  According to information provided about the upcoming event, it will be a full concert presentation, complete with pyrotechnics and guest performance by the all-female dance troupe The Cherry Bombs.

Tickets for the pay-per-view event are available.  Ticket bundles are also available.  They feature extras, such as a t-shirt, hoodie, poster, and access to an exclusive acoustic set from Taylor.

Taylor said in a recent interview, he was looking forward to the performance.

“I’ve been saying since the beginning, I’d find a way to bring this music and this band to the people,” he said.  “And I’m honored that the forum let us do just that.  It’s CMFT in its entirety.  It’s songs I’ve shared over the years.  It’s a celebration, and I’m so stoked to party with all of you.”

“Forum or Against ‘Em” is presented through a partnership between Danny Wimmer Presents and Taylor’s management company, 5B Artists + Media.

5B Artists + Media Founder/CEO shared Taylor’s excitement about the upcoming performance as he talked about the event.

“When Corey sent me a text saying FORUM OR AGAINST ‘EM I knew we had something truly special and unique,” he said. “The Forum is one of the most iconic venues in the world and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate his debut solo album!”

Additionally, Danny Wimmer Presents Founder and namesake Danny Wimmer said he was also anticipating the concert.

“To do a rock show on this scale, with an icon like Corey Taylor – while putting some of the behind-the-scenes heroes of the concert industry back to work – is an exciting step into the future,” said Wimmer. “We believe that Pay-Per-View is here to stay and we couldn’t think of anyone better to help us launch our new digital platform than Corey Taylor. He’s a global star, and his music with Slipknot and Stone Sour, as well as our amazing relationship with 5B, has helped to fuel DWP’s growth over the past decade. We can’t wait to get this show started.”
