With their seventh studio album nearing completion, Slipknot have unveiled a 40-date Knotfest Roadshow tour for the US and Canada to begin in mid-March.

Split into two legs, March 16 through to April 17, and then May 18 through to June 18, the tour will feature support from In This Moment and Jinjer on the first set of dates, and Cypress Hill and Ho99o9 on the second leg.

Announcing the tour, Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan says: “It feels so good to get back out on the road with our Culture. Get ready for a brand new experience. See you soon.”

“Even with everything going on in the world right now, we’re still extremely excited to come back out in the states, with two different, exciting packages,” adds frontman Corey Taylor. “Whether it’s In This Moment and Jinjer, or Cypress and Ho99o9, we pride ourselves in bringing our fans the epicenter of our music and art. Come celebrate with us, and try to stay as safe as we will be.”

Taylor has previously promised “Big Shit Coming” for the Iowa band in 2022. He has also assured Slipknot fans that they’re in for a treat with the new album, which he says is set to feature “fucking savage heavy shit”.
