Slipknot confirm new album release date and announce KNOTFEST ROADSHOW tour

It's going to be a big summer for Slipknot fans...

Slipknot have confirmed the release date of their hotly-anticipated new album, while also announcing details of the ‘KNOTFEST ROADSHOW’ tour which will hit North America this summer.

Fans of the long-running heavy metal outfit have been eagerly awaiting news about the record, which will follow 2014’s ‘.5: The Gray Chapter’. So far, only the song ‘All Out Life’, which came out back in October, has emerged.

It has now been confirmed that the new album, which is still untitled, will be released on August 9. Additional details about the record will, according to a press release, “be revealed in the coming weeks”.

Volbeat, Gojira, and Behemoth have all been confirmed as the special guests on the 29-date tour, which will take place between July and September (scroll down to see the full schedule)

Tickets for the tour go on general sale this Friday (March 8) at 10am local time here, while premium members of Slipknot’s fan club, ’Outside The 9’, can get advance access to pre-sale tickets from 10am local time tomorrow (March 5).
