L’adorilust. Forever. And Ever.

A post shared by Corey Taylor (@coreytaylor) on

Fans asked Dove how he proposed, and she shared the story on Twitter.

“After breakfast at home, as I put the salsa back in the fridge I shut the door and he was standing there with a ring. Got down on one knee, and I immediately started crying on the floor with him. In our kitchen. In our sweats nothing fancy. It was fucking perfect,” she wrote.

The couple went public about their relationship in May 2018, but Dove also just shared the story of how they met on Twitter.

Congrats to Taylor and Dove on the exciting news!

In other news, Slipknot dropped a teaser about their upcoming album with a heavily distorted vocal clip that fans think contain lyrics from the album. You can hear that for yourself below. 

Taylor has previously said the new album contains the band’s heaviest song yet.He also added that the band’s at their “most ambitious, our most experimental” on the forthcoming album.

The album still doesn’t have a name, but we do know it’s set to drop Aug. 9, and if the band continue teasers like this, we’ll be watching closely.
