The band’s last UK show was their triumphant headline set at Download Festival.

“The message tonight is clear,” wrote NME in our review. “Anyone who has ever thought this band was a joke, a novelty or not metal enough: hear them fucking roar. They literally cannot and will not be destroyed.”

In other Slipknot news, one fan believes that they have finally solved the mystery of the identity of new member Tortilla Face.

Meanwhile, Shawn “Clown” Crahan has revealed that the band are planning to release 11 unheard outtake songs from their album ‘All Hope Is Gone’ in the next couple of years.
