Experience the latest release from Corey Taylor’s highly anticipated CMF2 album, featuring the second single. Additionally, SLIPKNOT’s charismatic frontman has just unveiled a set of tour dates scheduled for late 2023
Corey Taylor, the renowned frontman of SLIPKNOT, has recently unveiled the second single from his highly anticipated second solo album, “CMF2“. Titled “Post Traumatic Blues,” this track follows the lead-off single “Beyond,” which was released in May. Taylor describes “Post Traumatic Blues” as his personal endeavor to provide people with an insight into the experience of dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Corey says: “Sometimes it’s so hard for people to understand the ups and downs, the severity of the cold and numbness,” he explains, “that I wanted to try and build a bridge lyrically between the ones living with the disease and the ones who are trying to help them.”

Taylor recently spoke with Metal Hammer about “CMF2“, saying: “The worry now is, when people hear CMF2 they’re gonna go, ‘Well what isn’t a solo song?’ The breadth of it is so wide now, because we’ve touched on so much shit. There’s super-heavy riffy stuff, hardcore punk, a piano song that could have been on [1987 U2 album] “The Joshua Tree” – I give no fucks. We’re challenging people – and nobody does that now. Everything’s a fuckin’ dial tone, with the rare exception of, like, 10% of bands out there. If you’re not challenging your listeners, you might as well be flipping burgers.”
