Slipknot plot Knotfest Roadshow with ADTR, Underoath, Code Orange
Slipknot might have just unveiled the sickest lineup of all time for their second Knotfest Roadshow. Kicking off in May, the 17-show tour is bringing along A Day To Remember, Underoath and Code Orange.
It seems that Slipknot really love touring. They're currently on a massive European tour, from which they'll head to Asia. Then, they'll play Sonic Temple Music and Arts Festival in May before rocking metal fans to the core with 2020's Knotfest Roadshow. Then a few more festivals, Knotfest at Sea, and Knotfest UK.
Slipknot's Corey Taylor spoke on what Knotfest means this year.
“We set a precedent last year – Knotfest is a showcase where you never know what to expect. This year is no exception, Taylor says. "The bands we have represent all corners of our musical world, just like we do. And they’re exciting as hell. I can’t wait to watch and enjoy them along with the rest of the fans.”
Only adding to the hype, Underoath's Chris Dudley commented on playing with Slipknot.
"When Slipknot asks you to come along for a summer of insanity, there are exactly zero questions to ask," Dudley says. "You say yes. This is absolutely going to be one for the books....and we’re ready."
Tickets for Knotfest Roadshow are expected to be in massive demand, given the limited cities and the popularity of everyone involved so don't expect them to be available long. As usual, Slipknot has numerous VIP packages for extra experiences and goodies. All Vip info is available here. Tickets go on sale starting Feb. 7 at 10 a.m. local time here.
