(PCM) It has finally happened! We have been waiting for awhile for the amazing collaboration between TECH N9NE and Slipknot/Stone Sour’s Corey Taylor and now it is here with the incredible new track “Wither”!
TECH N9NE will drop his highly anticipated new album “Special Effects” on May 4th via Strange Music.
Corey Taylor has often publicly praised Tech and his approach to both hip-hop and heavy music. “Working with Tech was a no-brainer,” states Taylor. “When I heard the music for ‘Wither’, I knew the two of us would make something dark and crazy. The slow burn in the music is awesome- his band is great and the performance is incredible. People are gonna s**t!”
TECH N9NE is no stranger to the music of SLIPKNOT, having been a dedicated fan for over a decade. “This collaboration is a total dream come true, because I’ve been a Maggot (what SLIPKNOT affectionately calls their fans) since ’99. This song we did together is such a dynamic rollercoaster ride! It starts off calm and cool and then f**kin’ gets loud and extremely mean and crazy! It’s perfect!”
The release of this track not only anticipates the release of Special Effects, but Tech’s upcoming performance at heavy rock and metal festival Rock On The Range on Sunday, May 17th in Columbus, OH at MAPFRE Stadium. This follows Tech’s other recent rock festival performances at SLIPKNOT’s very own KNOTFEST and Monster Energy’s Aftershock Festival, solidifying Tech as a crossover artist to contend with.
Aside from “Wither”, Special Effects has birthed buzzing singles “Aw Yeah (interVENTion),” “Dyin’ Flyin’,” “Hood Go Crazy,” (feat. 2 Chainz and B.o.B.), and most recently, “Speedom” featuring arguably one of the world’s most famous rappers, Eminem.
TECH N9NE is currently touring on his Special Effects Tour 2015, which wraps up in Wichita on June 3. The tour also features indie-rap mainstay Chris Webby, along with label mates Krizz Kaliko and MURS, Flint, Michigan metal band King 810 and Jamaican rap-phenom ZUSE.
