“You’re Making Me Hate You: A Cantankerous Look At The Common Misconception That Humans Have Any Common Sense Left”, the new book from SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor, will be released on July 7 via Da Capo Press, a member of the Perseus Books Group.
Taylor will promote the book with a combination of bookstore events and a solo tour which will be one-of-a-kind shows featuring readings from the book, acoustic performance, and audience discussion.
A clip of Taylor rehearsing a cover version of the LIVE song “Lightning Crashes” for the upcoming tour can be seen below.
During an appearance on the Nerdist podcast, Taylor stated about “You’re Making Me Hate You”: “It’s fucking brutal. It’s just me basically trashing everyone.”
Taylor said that his original title — which the publisher refused to allow him to use — was “You’re Making Me Hate You (Or How Justin Bieber Sucked A Million Dicks To Make His Money)”.
Taylor‘s last book, “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven”, was published in the summer of 2013 and landed at No. 23 on the New York Times “Hardcover Non-Fiction” best sellers list.
His first book, 2011’s “Seven Deadly Sins: Settling The Argument Between Born Bad And Damaged Good”, also made the list at No. 26.
The singer told The Pulse Of Radio in 2013 that his third book would be a collection of columns he’d written over the past decade for U.K. magazine Rock Sound. It is not clear whether this is that book. Taylor also said he plans to write a novel.
Solo tour rehearsals have begun….
