Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor is really amping things up in preparation for the drop of his solo album CMFT next week. The singer has released several singles, not to mention a livestreamed concert from The Forum in Los Angeles on the eve of the record’s release. Now, it’s been revealed that the latest track from CMFT, “Culture Head,” will see its world premiere on tonight’s WWE NXT broadcast.
The track appears to be in keeping with the previous singles from the record — big, digestible radio rock, focused more on classic bravado than Slipknot’s preference towards pre-natal deformity and rusted wheelbarrows. The news was revealed on the Twitter account of WWE wrestled Triple H, who posted a preview of the track and wrote, “From @Slipknot to #CMFT, @CoreyTaylorRock is #NXTLOUD through and through. Now, for the first time ever, hear and see the global premiere of his new song “Culture Head” EXCLUSIVELY on #WWENXT tonight at 8pm ET! #WeAreNXT”

WWE NXT airs tonight on USA at 8pm EST. The event’s press release promises that the show will include the entire new solo record, cover tracks, select Stone Sour and Slipknot fan favorites, a pyro display, and even a set by rock go-go troupe the Cherry Bombs, whose ranks include Corey’s wife Alicia Dove.
“I’ve been saying since the beginning I’d find a way to bring this music and this band to the people,” said Taylor in a statement. “And I’m honored 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.”
Corey Taylor’s livestream, Forum or Against ‘Em, goes down October 2nd. Check out his site for more details, including exclusive merch and chance to have a one-on-one Q&A sesh with the great big mouth himself.
