Bad news for metal fans! Slipknot has been forced to postpone a few tour dates after frontman Corey Taylor underwent spinal surgery. Scary stuff!

The live shows will now kick off June 28 in Nashville, after previously being scheduled to begin on June 9. Check out the dates here.

Taylor shared the following statement on Facebook:

“Regretfully, I’m sending this to our fans to inform you that we will be postponing the first couple of weeks of our upcoming U.S tour. Unfortunately, I had to undergo an unplanned spinal surgery. I am recovering nicely, and all went well! I need a little recovery time before hitting the stage. We will start the summer tour in Nashville on 6/28 and continue as previously scheduled. An update on the rescheduled dates will be available in the next few days. I hope you all understand and thanks for always having my back! Thank you"

Get well soon, guy! Make sure to watch an original Fuse interview with Taylor below.
