“You’re Making Me Hate You” is the new book by one of Lou’s favorite human beings, Slipknot and Stone Sour lead singer, Corey Taylor.
Corey is embarking on a solo tour that will include readings from the book along with music. He’s also invited Lou to host a special event.
On Wednesday July 8th, Bryant Park in New York City will feature Corey and Lou as part of their venerable Word for Word author series.
No one is quite sure exactly what these two have cooked up for the event but, rest assured, it will be different.
Attendance for this even is free and runs from 12:30pm to 1:45pm.

UPDATE: The event was sick! Thanks to all!
The Lou Brutus holiday card for 2014 has been unveiled.
Once again, the artwork has been created by Lou’s longtime partner in artistic crime Alan MacBain of The Alan MacBain Cartoon Company.
This year the theme is Guardians of the Holiday with Lou and his beloved Darla the Wonder Dog joined by a bevy of rock star friends in a scene from the Guardians of the Galaxy film poster.
Brutus takes the Star Lord postion while Lzzy Hale of Halestorm is Gamora, Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch is Drax the Destroyer and Jim Root of Slipknot stands in as Groot. A snarling Darla fires a laser a la Rocket Raccoon.
The cards are only sent out to friends and family of Lou’s. However, a very small amount of them will be made available to fans through LB’s social networks. Keep your eyes on the official Lou Brutus Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Good Luck!
Even acting as host at Knotfest wasn’t enough for LB of his favorite band, so he’s mades the rounds at various stops around the country on the Prepare for Hell Tour featuring Slipknot, KoRn and King 810.
Lou has posted dozens of shots from backstage and onstage via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. He also had a portrait shot done with the band in Baltimore MD by Rob Fortenberry Photography. You can see a few small examples below. However, we urge you to follow Brutus on his socials for lots more!
It was an incredible weekend of rock as Slipknot, Lou’s favorite band, returned to the concert stage with a vengeance and over 50,000 fans in tow for Knotfest in San Bernardino, CA.
The trip was insane for LB as he interviewed dozens of artists backstage including Slipknot, Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, In This Moment, Nothing More, Otep, Miss May I, Killswitch Engage, Avatar, HellYeah and many others. He was also honored to be onstage announcer and host of the world wide webcast, seen by millions of Maggots around the planet.
While backstage, Lou was also guest on the Roadrunner Records podcast with Mark Abramson. You can give it a listen here. We expect LB to guest again on it early in 2015.
Brutus extends his sincere thanks to Slipknot, 5B Management, Roadrunner Records, John Reese and the crew at GTV. Massive props also go to Rob Fortenberry Photography for shadowing Lou throughout the event and getting incredible images!
It will be the sickest event of the year: Knotfest!
Lou has been invited to co-host the event onstage so look for him the weekend of October 25 and 26 with Slipknot, Five Finger Death Punch, Nothing More, Hatebreed, Volbeat, Killswitch Engage, Miss May I, and many others.
He’ll also be in the photo pits so look for images online throughout the weekend via Lou on Facebook, Twitter, and Vine.
You’re insane if you miss this. Ticket info here.
