Earlier this week, the band have also been confirmed to play Rocklahoma 2021, alongside Rob Zombie and Limp Bizkit.

Slipknot’s performance at the festival comes shortly before they return to the road for the 2021 Knotfest Roadshow, which will see them taking in shows across North America.

The 28-date run follows the band’s previously announced Knotfest Iowa hometown show in Des Moines on September 25, with the nu-metal icons set to be supported by Killswitch EngageFever 333 and Code Orange on the new run of dates.

Last week, Slipknot‘s Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan opened up about the progress of the band’s next record, revealing that it could be completed as early as next month.

The latest comments from the masked percussionist come after frontman Corey Taylor previously teased that the band are working on a bunch of “really cool” new material.

Meanwhile, Clown released a new ambient track last week titled ‘Brainwash Love – Feed The Worms Birds’.
