There are two notable pieces of news that emerged from camp Slipknot recently. First, the band’s frontman Corey Taylor underwent spinal surgery after being unexpectedly hospitalized. Second, the band will have to postpone tour dates that were scheduled with Marilyn Manson and Of Mice & Men. Here’s the official statement that was issued by Corey in regards to this:

“Regretfully, I’m sending this to our fans to inform you that we will be postponing the first couple of weeks of our upcoming U.S tour. Unfortunately, I had to undergo an unplanned spinal surgery. I am recovering nicely, and all went well! I need a little recovery time before hitting the stage. We will start the summer tour in Nashville on June 28 and continue as previously scheduled. An update on the rescheduled dates will be available in the next few days. I hope you all understand and thanks for always having my back!”
