Slipknot Embarks on the Sophomore Knotfest Tour
Iowan alt-metal behemoth Slipknot is back and hitting the road on the second-ever Knotfest Roadshow. Bringing sonic carnage to venues across North America this summer, the revered outfit is bringing along fellow hard-rocking bands A Day To Remember, Underoath, and Code Orange along for the riotous ride.
Formed in 1995, the nine-member hellraising ensemble quickly grabbed attention and headlines with their unapologetically aggressive shock rock and intense, high-energy live shows. Fusing together heavy, nu, alternative and groove metal, their fuzzy angst-ridden and politically furious social commentaries speak to nihilist in all of us. On stage, the band takes their metal agenda to theatrical heights by donning industrial jumpsuits and distorted Halloween masks, expertly balancing the art of the theatre macabre with visual and sonic spectacle. Wear comfy shoes, because there's bound to be a mosh or two on the horizon.
