Slipknot announce the Knotfest Roadshow - and reveal new album release date

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

The 29-date run is described as “a mind-altering collision of music, art and culture.” Not only will Slipknot be headlining, but they’ve also revealed today that they’ll be joined on the road by Gojira, Behemoth and Volbeat.

The Roadshow will kick off at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, on July 26 and wrap up at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion at The Woodlands, Texas, on September 8.

Tickets will go on general sale this coming Friday (March 8) from 10am local time.

The band have an off day on August 9 – and it’s also been confirmed this afternoon that that’s exactly when their highly anticipated new studio album will be released.

Slipknot have given no further details aside from the release date, but it's expected to feature All Out Life, which the band revealed last Halloween.

Additional album details will be released in the coming weeks.

Each pair of tickets purchased online will come with a digital copy of the new album, with further details available from Slipknot’s website.

On Friday last week, Slipknot teased today’s announcement by launching the website www.wearenotyourkind.com.

Before their North American Roadshow, Slipknot will play across Europe – a run of shows that includes a headline set at the UK’s Download festival.
