Corey Taylor Announces Huge Global Livestream, Forum Or Against Em

Watch the cinematic trailer for Corey Taylor’s upcoming Forum Or Against Em livestream.

To coincide with his debut solo album CMFT, Corey Taylor has announced a huge release-day global livestream, Forum Or Against Em.

As per its excellent punny name, the stream will be taking place at Los Angeles’ legendary Forum on October 2, with Corey joined by his bandmates – guitarists Christian Martucci and Zach Throne, bassist Jason Christopher and drummer and Dustin Robert – plus a whooooole load of production. 

The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman is set to run through a bunch of tracks from his extensive back-catalogue, as well as every single song on CMFT. On top of that, rock’n’roll dance troupe Cherry Bombs will open proceedings with a guest performance to warm things up (literally).

I’ve been saying since the beginning I’d find a way to bring this music and this band to the people,” Corey says. And I’m honoured that The Forum let us do just that. It’s CMFT in its entirety. It’s songs I’ve shared over the years. It’s a celebration, and I’m so stoked to party with all of you.”

When Corey sent me a text saying Forum Or Against Em I knew we had something truly special and unique,” adds 5B Artist & Media Founder and CEO, Cory Brennan. The Forum is one of the most iconic venues in the world and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate his debut solo album!”

To do a rock show on this scale, with an icon like Corey Taylor – while putting some of the behind-the-scenes heroes of the concert industry back to work – is an exciting step into the future,” continues Danny Wimmer, Founder of Danny Wimmer Presents. We believe that Pay-Per-View is here to stay and we couldn’t think of anyone better to help us launch our new digital platform than Corey Taylor. He’s a global star, and his music with Slipknot and Stone Sour, as well as our amazing relationship with 5B, has helped to fuel DWP’s growth over the past decade. We can’t wait to get this show started.”

CMFT is due out on October 2, the same day as Forum Or Against Em takes place. Grab your tickets via, and check out the cinematic trailer below:
