Corey Taylor performed the track at his livestreamed concert event Forum or Against ‘Em, which occurred the day of his album’s release.

“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.”

“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,” says Danny Wimmer, the man behind rock festival company Danny Wimmer Presents and one of Taylor’s partners on the event. “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.”
