Corey Taylor presents Forum Or Against ‘Em

 To celebrate the release day of his first-ever solo album, GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter, Corey Taylor has announced that he and his band will make history on October 2nd with Forum Or Against ‘Em, a global streaming event of epic proportions shot at iconic Los Angeles venue, The Forum. Tickets for this historic pay-per-view streaming event are on sale now from watch.thecoreytaylor.com Fans can also purchase ticket bundles that include a t-shirt, hoodie, poster, and access to watch an exclusive Corey Taylor acoustic set. A limited number of one-on-one video chats with Corey Taylor are also available with some bundles.

 Forum Or Against ‘Em will be a full arena production complete with a visual feast of pyrotechnics, a stacked setlist featuring all tracks from CMFT, select fan-favorite cuts from Taylor’s Slipknot and Stone Sour catalogs, a handful of covers, and an incendiary guest performance from rock n’ roll girl-gang dance squad, The Cherry Bombs.

Special event merch and bundles will be available during the stream. Kicking off the event’s festivities will be a special pre-show event hosted by presenter/journalist, Beez that will feature exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.

Speaking about his upcoming streaming extravaganza, Corey Taylor tells us “I’ve been saying since the beginning I’d find a way to bring this music and this band to the people. 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.”

In the rapidly evolving sphere of streamed events, Forum Or Against ‘Em is set to be an industry first, as Corey Taylor and his management team at 5B Artists + Media partner with Danny Wimmer Presents, the largest independent festival producer in the United States, to put on this one-of-a-kind, pay-per-view concert experience. In utilizing The Forum for this special steaming event, the team is not only able to put together a world-class rock extravaganza with a massive arena production, in total, they are also providing work to approximately 80 event staff.  


Speaking on this groundbreaking partnership, 5B Artist & Media Founder and CEO, Cory Brennan says “When Corey sent me a text saying FORUM OR AGAINST ‘EM I knew we had something truly special and unique. 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!”


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,” says Danny Wimmer, Founder of Danny Wimmer Presents. “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.


Taylor’s debut solo album, CMFT, is set for release on October 2nd via Roadrunner Records. Taylor recently released a music video for “Black Eyes Blue,” which has entered the Top 10 at Active Rock Radio, surpassing previous first-week chart numbers from both Slipknot and Stone Sour. 

Pre-orders for CMFT are available now with limited edition vinyl and merch bundles available at www.thecoreytaylor.com

You can usually find me traveling, queuing, or at barricade for a band. I am most likely doing all three things in a day. If I'm not at a concert you can also find me digging through crates for that coveted black disc of vinyl.
