Before Slipknot kick off their massive summer shows, Corey Taylor has some dates of his own this month to start getting people excited for his next solo record.

With the frontman announcing recently that he’s signed to BMG for the release – entitled CMF2 – Corey decided to preview two songs from the album at the first night of his solo tour on May 2. And so, the crowd at Reading’s Santander Arena were the first to hear new tunes We Are The Rest and Beyond – the latter being CMF2’s lead single, Corey confirmed onstage.

Of course, the setlist also consisted of a whole lot of his previous work in both Slipknot and Stone Sour, plus some stuff from his debut solo album CMFT, and covers of John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band’s On The Dark Side and Motörhead’s Ace Of Spades.

Check out fan-shot footage of We Are The Rest:
