Slipknot star COREY TAYLOR has launched his own record label to give aspiring new acts in his native Iowa the opportunity to succeed. Taylor's new Des Moines company, Great Big Mouth Records, will debut with local act FACECAGE's new album. The rocker says, "They're a band from here that we're trying to put in the national spotlight. "Basically we're just trying to unify the scene and really bring more attention to the Midwest than there is right now. The record labels are so tentative about flying to the Midwest because it's really hard to get a direct flight anywhere in the area. "Trust me, coming home from many tours, I know the pain - but at the same time there are a lot of great bands here that deserve the attention, deserve the shot. That's what we're trying to do with Great Big Mouth Records."
