Slipknot have announced that they’ll head out on tour across North America this summer on the Knotfest Roadshow.

The 17-date run will see Slipknot hitting the road with A Day To Remember, Underoath and Code Orange. The Roadshow will kick off in Syracuse, New York on May 30 and wrap up in The Woodlands, Texas, on June 25.

Frontman Corey Taylor says: “We set a precedent last year – Knotfest is a showcase where you never know what to expect. This year is no exception. 

"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."

A Day To Remember guitarist Neil Westfall adds: “We are stoked to share the stage with a band that has defined heavy music for an entire generation. This tour will be one of the best live shows this year.” 

Underoath’s Chris Dudley says: “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.”

Code Orange's Jami Morgan adds: “We’re very grateful to get the opportunity to do a full tour with Slipknot on the Knotfest Roadshow. Slipknot is one of the bands that we have had at the top of our list to be able to open for and hopefully be exposed to their amazing, cultural crowd that’s been around for a really long time. We’re very much looking forward to showing some new people what we can do.”
