Slipknot have announced a European tour for July and August 2022. 

The news follows the recent announcements that the band would headline Chicago's Riot Fest in September and also play Knotfest dates in South America this December.

In June Slipknot announced six rescheduled European dates after their 2021 tour was postponed due to Covid. They now have 13 dates in total for their 2022 We Are Not Your Kind European tour, which you can view in full below. 

Earlier this year the band also revealed that they were working on the follow-up to 2019's We Are Not Your Kind. Shawn 'Clown' Crahan compared the new music to their seminal second album Iowa in an interview with Metal Hammer, while frontman Corey Taylor revealed details of the new music while speaking to Consequence

“It’s an expansion of where we were at on We Are Not Your Kind,’ the singer stated. “This band has always prided itself on expanding boundaries, expanding our musical vision.

“There’s a couple of songs on here that people are gonna be, like… There’s definitely some pit openers that are gonna fucking freak people out.”

The album title and release date are yet to be announced. See the full tour dates for Slipknot's 2022 European tour below.
