Slipknot have placed a cryptic new billboard in Indio, California, near the site of this month’s Coachella and last October’s Power Trip festivals.

The advertisement, which has been spotted and shared by the nu metal band’s fans on Reddit, contains the Slipknot logo, plus the phrases “ONE NIGHT ONLY” and “LONG MAY YOU DIE”.

The billboard also features a URL,, which is a website about the Iowan nine-piece presented in the style of early internet blogs. contains all of Slipknot’s currently announced live dates, as well as the track listing of the band’s 1999 debut album.

A full bio detailing the history of the Slipknot album is available on the site, too.

Slipknot will be touring Europe towards the end of the year to celebrate their debut’s 25th anniversary and perform it in its entirety.

Before that, the band will be playing a number of North and South American festivals in the spring and the autumn, starting at Sick New World, Las Vegas, on April 27.

Slipknot’s 2024 shows will be their first since 2013 without long-time drummer Jay Weinberg, following his dismissal in November.

The band have posted cryptic social media posts teasing the identity of Weinberg’s replacement.

Although Slipknot’s new drummer hasn’t been officially named, fans speculate that it may be former Sepultura member Eloy Casagrande.

Casagrande abruptly left Sepultura mere days before the start of their ongoing farewell tour in February.

The full list of Slipknot’s 2024 tour dates is available below.
