The moment we've all been waiting for is upon us: Slipknot is going back on tour.
Slipknot recently announced that the North American Knotfest Roadshow is coming back in 2020. The heavy metal band will be joined by A Day to Remember, Underoath, and Code Orange. In other words, the glory days of the early aughts' melodramatic rage is about to be f*cking resurrected.
Last year, Knotfest Roadshow drew the largest crowds Slipknot had seen since their 1995 debut, including their peak years of winning a Grammy for Metal Performance of "Before I Forget" and the stunning emotional trips of "Vermillion Part 1," "Part 2," and "Part 3" between 2004 and 2006.
"We set a precedent last year – Knotfest is a showcase where you never know what to expect. This year is no exception," says Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor. "The bands we have represent all corners of our musical world, just like we do. And they're exciting as hell. I can't wait to watch and enjoy them along with the rest of the fans."
Underoath's Chris Dudley adds, "When Slipknot asks you to come along for a summer of insanity, there are exactly zero questions to ask. You say yes. This is absolutely going to be one for the books....and we're ready."
Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 7, at 10:00 AM EST.
