Slipknot have announced an extensive tour of North America to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut album.

The Iowa nu metal nine-piece will play multiple headline shows and festivals across the US and Canada from August to September, with support coming from metalcore stars Knocked Loose, melodeath favourites Orbit Culture and nu metal up-and-comers Vended.

The full list of dates on the Here Comes The Pain tour is available below.

Tickets to the concerts will be made available via an exclusive Knotfest presale today (April 30) at 12pm ET.

General sale will begin on Friday (May 3) at 10am local time.

Slipknot announced their first US Slipknot celebration show yesterday (April 29), when they revealed they will headline Knotfest Iowa in September.

The bill for the one-day festival, held in The Nine’s hometown of Des Moines, also includes Knocked Loose and Vended, as well as Hatebreed, Poison The Well, Gwar and more.

The North American tour will precede Slipknot’s tour of UK and Europe in December.

Percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan has previously stated that Slipknot will be played live in full during the European shows.

Whether the album will be played in its entirety on the newly announced North American run hasn’t been confirmed.

Here Comes The Pain will mark Slipknot’s first fully fledged tour with new drummer Eloy Casagrande, whom the band officially unveiled as their drummer this morning (April 30).

Casagrande left Brazilian metal veterans Sepultura to join Slipknot in February, replacing Jay Weinberg following his dismissal last November.
