Slipknot will kick off their European summer tour (opens in new tab) today (June 7) when they take to that stage at Rockfest in Finland.

It’s the start of the band’s touring cycle in support of their new studio album We Are Not Your Kind (opens in new tab), which will arrive on August 9 through Roadrunner Records.

Following their Rockfest performance, they’ll head to Germany for an appearance on Saturday at Hamburg’s Rock Im Park. Then, on Sunday, Slipknot will headline Nurburg’s Rock Am Ring – and you’ll be able to watch the whole set live.

The band revealed the news on social media, with the set due to get under way at 9.45pm GMT, 4.45pm ET and 1.45pm PT.

It’ll be available to watch through Slipknot’s official website or you can bookmark this page and tune in right here.

Slipknot revealed their new masks in their video for Unsainted last month and later performed a blistering two-song set on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.

Speaking about the follow-up to 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter, guitarist Jim Root said: “This is the most time we’ve had to write a record and work stuff out together. One of my inspirations this time around was those artists that recorded full length albums – not just songs.  

“While the industry is moving toward singles, Slipknot wanted to make an album experience, front to back.”
