Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum singer-songwriter, actor, and New York Times best-selling author Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT, STONE SOUR) has released the fourth single, ‘We Are The Rest’, from his upcoming sophomore solo studio album, “CMF2”. The song is a powerful anthem for the outsider, celebrating those who don’t fit in and who are often overlooked, the ones who are never good enough. But it’s also a song about hope, about realizing that we’re not alone and that, if we look for help, we can get through anything.
The song is accompanied by a visualizer that features Taylor performing the song in a dark, industrial setting. The visuals are simple but effective, perfectly capturing the song’s message of resilience and defiance.
The album is a follow-up to Taylor‘s 2020 solo debut, “CMFT”, which featured the hit singles ‘Black Eyes Blue’ and ‘CMFT Must Be Stopped’. “CMF2” is said to be more experimental and eclectic than its predecessor, with Taylor exploring a wider range of sounds and styles.
“My first solo album was kind of where I was coming from. This album is more where we’re going,” Taylor adds. “CMF2” — where Taylor sings and plays lead and rhythm guitar, piano, and mandolin — packs the energy, experimentation, and forthrightness that’s defined a career which has seen him sell more than 12 million albums with his Grammy-winning band SLIPKNOT and several million with chart-toppers STONE SOUR.
The album is already generating a lot of excitement among fans, and ‘We Are The Rest’ is sure to only add to the hype. The song is a powerful and moving anthem that is sure to resonate with anyone who has ever felt like an outsider.
In support of his new album, Taylor has announced his 2023 tour featuring special guests WARGASM, OXYMORRONS and LUNA AURA on select dates. Produced by Live Nation, the 28-city tour kicks off on August 25 at Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, making stops across the U.S in Detroit, Orlando, Dallas and more before the final headline show in Los Angeles at The Wiltern on October 5.
