Slipnot are preparing to kick off a European tour next week when they hit the stage at the Rockfest on June 7 at Hyyvinkaa Airfield in Hyvinaa, Finland. Hopefully, singer Corey Taylor will be ready to rock by then. The singer revealed on Wednesday (May 29) that he suffered a most unfortunate accident while warming up his voice in rehearsal recently. 

"Working on my '87 Dokken high notes this morning," he tweeted. "Fucked around and blew out the left testicle. Careful on re-entry, kids." 

The band is slated to release its latest album, We Are Not Your Kind, on Aug. 9; a spokesperson could not be reached for comment at press time to confirm the injury or discuss whether it will impact any upcoming shows. Taylor's fiancee, Alice Dove, assured fans that her intended is just fine in a tweet a short time later.

As news outlets began to pick up the story over the past few days Taylor seemed shocked that his mishap was news, finally taking some comfort on Thursday (May 30) when Dokken warned him to "be careful Corey!"
