Slipknot have announced that they’ll record a studio session for BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show With Daniel P Carter (opens in new tab).
The intimate session will take place this coming Sunday (January 26) in London and there are only 25 pairs of tickets up for grabs. They’re available through the BBC, with the chance to grab them running until 11.59pm tonight (January 21).
Winners will then be notified by January 23.
The performance will come the day after Slipknot’s show at the city's O2 – the last stop on their UK tour in support of We Are Not Your Kind (opens in new tab). The band will then travel to Amsterdam for their remaining shows across mainland Europe.
Earlier this week, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor told the Irish Times why he decided to quit social media six months ago, saying: “It brings out the worst in people. It is social mania. It’s ridiculous.” (opens in new tab)
The Iowa heavyweights recently released a short film titled Pollution which was based around the video for Nero Forte and directed by Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan.
Slipknot will return to the UK on August 22 for Knotfest UK at The National Bowl in Milton Keynes (opens in new tab) for a “mind-altering collision of music, art and culture.”
