GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter, actor, and New York Times Best-Selling Author, Corey Taylor has announced new ‘CMFTour’ summer 2021 tour dates. The new headline run will kick-off on August 6th at the House of Blues in Las Vegas, NV and will feature special guests THE CHERRY BOMBS on all dates [tour itinerary below]. Pre-sale tickets are available starting tomorrow, Wednesday June 23rd at 10:00AM PT with all remaining tickets going on sale to the general public on Friday, June 25th at 10:00AM local time. For tickets and more information on the upcoming concerts, please visit www.thecoreytaylor.com.

The new summer dates will see Taylor and his band running through anthems from his critically acclaimed solo debut CMFT, choice cuts from his SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR catalogs, and various covers and surprises. Additionally, girl gang dance squad THE CHERRY BOMBS will kick off each night of the tour with a high octane, high flying performance.

2021 has been as busy as ever for Taylor. Having just wrapped the sold-out spring leg of his ‘CMFTour’, which he documented in a series of ‘Tour Diaries’ for Rolling Stone. Taylor also recently released an inspired new cover of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s “Carry On” and fronted GROUND CONTROL, a supergroup also comprised of Taylor Hawkins [FOO FIGHTERS], Dave Navarro [JANE'S ADDICTION], and Chris Chaney [JANE'S ADDICTION] performing at The Bowie Celebration: Just for One Day in tribute to the late David Bowie.

CMFT remains another milestone for Taylor. Making history, he reached #1 at Active Rock Radio with his powerful single “Black Eyes Blue”. The achievement put Taylor in a class all his own, cementing him as the first artist in the history of the format to reach #1 with three separate projects, following chart-topping efforts from his band’s SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR. CMFT made impressive debuts on charts around the world this month entering at #1 on Billboard’s “Current Hard Rock Albums” chart, while claiming #2 on “Current Rock Albums,” #6 on “Vinyl Albums,” and #9 on the “Top Albums” charts. Furthermore, CMFT landed Top 10 on the official album charts in Australia, Germany, Switzerland and Austria, with Top 20 debuts in the United Kingdom, Finland and Japan (international chart).

Named one of Loudwire’s “Best Rock +Metal Albums of 2020,” CMFT garnered widespread critical applause with FORBES affirming, “Corey Taylor’s singing is undeniably the best it’s ever been. From SLIPKNOT’s last album to his new solo material, Taylor is easily among the best sounding rock singers alive.” Kerrang! raved, “Corey Taylor certainly couldn’t have predicted how important a sense of uninhibited joy would be on his debut solo effort, it’s just what 2020 needs – and, even more importantly, exactly what he delivers.” The Daily Beast attested, “CMFT finds the singer broadening his horizons and showing off his considerable versatility,” while Stereogum noted, “Corey Taylor’s lived several lives in the span that it takes most of us to push through just one, and it’s clear that he cherishes every experience he’s had so far.” New York Magazine added that CMFT “bridges his vast tastes and influences, dabbling in punk rock, metal, reflective acoustic tunes, plaintive piano ballads, and hip-hop, with Taylor’s power-house vocals and introspective lyrics acting as a guide.”

CMFT is highlighted by the singles “Samantha’s Gone”, “Culture Head”, “HWY 666”, “CMFT Must Be Stopped [feat. Tech N9ne & Kid Bookie]”, and the Active Rock radio hit “Black Eyes Blue”. Taylor hit #1 on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Songwriters” chart following the unprecedented debut of “Black Eyes Blue” and “CMFT Must Be Stopped [feat. Tech N9ne & Kid Bookie]”, the latter of which has racked up over 4.5 million YouTube views for its star-studded music video. Furthermore, Taylor debuted the pummeling “Culture Head” during WWE’s NXT broadcast on the USA Network, illuminating yet another facet of CMFT and showcasing the broad spectrum of this fiery and fearless rock ‘n’ roll opus, as Taylor touches on lifelong influences ranging from hard rock to classic rock, punk rock to hip-hop. 14-Time World Champion and EVP of Global Talent Strategy & Development at WWE, Triple H, also shared a WWE exclusive performance of Taylor and his band tearing through the MOTORHEAD classic “Ace of Spades” while “HWY 666” was selected as the theme song for WWE’s Tables, Ladders & Chairs pay-per-view event.

CMFT has been a long time coming for Taylor, with newly written tracks alongside some dating back to his teens. Recorded at Hideout Studio in Las Vegas, with producer Jay Ruston and his band—Christian Martucci [guitar], Zach Throne [guitar], Jason Christopher [bass], and Dustin Robert [drums]— the album traces a wild and exhilarating roadmap through Taylor’s musical psyche.
