Corey Taylor, frontman for Noisecreep favorites Slipknot and Stone Sour, is embarking on a solo tour this fall.

The idea for the tour sprang from an intimate set of UK gigs that Taylor recently played to launch his bestselling book 'Seven Deadly Sins,' as well as his speaking engagement at Oxford University this summer. Taylor will perform originals and some choice covers acoustically, read selections from the book, and take questions from the audience. Billed as "An Evening With Corey Taylor," these shows will be a rare opportunity for many fans to interact with Taylor in this intimate a setting, and vice versa.

"I had so much fun doing this type of show in England that I just HAD to bring it to the States", says Taylor. "Its gonna be one part Henry Rollins, one part Johnny Cash and probably a little heavy on the Monty Python. Its everything I love to do; singing, comedy and talkin' smack. Hopefully the audience enjoys it as much as I do."

Taylor's book, 'Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good,' is an outrageous manifesto on the nature of sin, offered in Taylor's unique and informed voice. The tome is now available in audio form, read by Taylor himself and featuring an action-packed ending not included in the print version. 'Seven Deadly Sins' has spent 4 weeks on the New York Times bestsellers list, and 5 weeks on the Times of London's bestseller list.
