    Get ready, Maggots! Slipknot are taking their Knotfest on the road this summer. The band’s “Knotfest Roadshow” 2019 North American tour features a stacked lineup, with Slipknot headlining a bill that includes Volbeat, Gojira, and Behemoth.

    With the tagline, “A Mind-Altering Collision of Music, Art and Culture”, the Knotfest Roadshow will launch July 26th in Mountain View, California, and run through a September 8th stop in The Woodlands, Texas.

    As previously reported, Slipknot will be playing the Iowa State Fair on August 10th in Des Moines. For that show, they’ll be joined by Gojira only.


    Tickets for “Knotfest Roadshow” will go on sale this Friday, March 8th, via Live Nation, with various pre-sales happening earlier. Once tickets sell out, they’ll be available via StubHub.

    Along with the tour announcement, Slipknot have also revealed that their highly anticipated new album will arrive on August 9th. In fact, fans who purchase a pair of tickets to the Knotfest Roadshow will receive a digital copy of the as-yet-untitled disc.

    So far, the only taste of the new album we’ve gotten is the single “All Out Life”, which Slipknot dropped as a Halloween surprise last year. The band has been busy in the studio in recent weeks working on the album.


    Members of Slipknot will be appearing this Thursday (March 7th)  at Los Angeles skate shop Brooklyn Projects for a “Knotfest Roadshow” event, where tickets and exclusive merchandise will be on sale.
