Hear SLIPKNOT's COREY TAYLOR roar on new solo song "Post Traumatic Blues"

Singer leans into heavier side on latest 'CMF2' single

Get Corey Taylor's new solo album, CMF2, on vinyl and CD at Revolver's shop.

For Slipknot fans who find Corey Taylor's solo music just a little too soft most of the time, the singer's latest eponymously released single might scratch your particular itch a bit better.

The follow-up to May's "Beyond" opens with a chugging, churning riff and a guttural roar right out of the 'Knot playbook. What follows splits the difference between the aggro metal of Taylor's main band and the more hard-rock inclinations of his solo output, setting bellowed, concussive verses against an anthemic upbeat chorus.

The song arrived today (July 11th) accompanied by a fun, newsprint-stylized music video. Watch and listen above.

"'Post Traumatic Blues' is my attempt to describe for people what it's like to deal with PTSD," Taylor commented. "Sometimes it's so hard for people to understand the ups and downs, the severity of the cold and numbness, 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's upcoming solo album, CMF2 — the follow-up to 2020's CMFT — is due out September 15th via the singer's own label imprint, Decibel Cooper Recordings. You can pre-order it on CD and vinyl — including limited-edition color vinyl — here.
