When their frontman Corey Taylor hasn’t been busy slagging off everyone from legendary producer Rick Rubin for being overpaid, to rival Scott Weiland for being lazy producing a Christmas album, Slipknot have been preparing for their return to Australia as part of Soundwave 2012.

The tour will coincide with the 10 year Anniversary of their breakthrough album ‘Iowa’, and now they’ve announced that as well as touring as one of the headliners of Soundwave 2012, the band will lead their unholy army of maggots through the nine circles of hell as they play 2 headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne.

Tickets go on sale Friday 9 December, 10am.
