When speaking with Triple M’s Higgo, Slipknot’s clown, Shawn Crahan, has admitted to being frightened by Koalas.
“They absolutely scare the living death out of me. I’ve never heard a noise come out of an animal like I have a Koala bear… It sounds like its having its head cut off. I’m actually going to try and hold one this time, but I don’t know I’m brave enough.”
Slipknot will be appearing at this year’s Soundwave Festival as well as playing a couple of sideshows while in Australia. A new record from the heavy metal band is expected in 2013.
