Holy smokes, folks. Barely two months into 2020 and we may have just been hit with the absolute best tour package of not just the year but maybe the decade.
In support of last year’s album We Are Not Your Kind, metal legends Slipknot have just revealed a second leg to their Knotfest Roadshow.
While last year’s package included bands like Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth, this year Slipknot is turning the tables as they will be taking out A Day To Remember, Underoath and Code Orange.
Let us repeat that in case you didn’t hear us: SLIPKNOT WILL BE TOURING WITH A DAY TO REMEMBER, UNDEROATH AND CODE ORANGE!
Talking about this incredibly exciting announcement, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor said, “We set a precedent last year – Knotfest is a showcase where you never know what to expect. This year is no exception. 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.”
Adding to this, A Day To Remember guitarist Neil Westfall commented, “We are stoked to share the stage with a band that has defined heavy music for an entire generation. This tour will be one of the best live shows this year.”
Underoath’s Chris Dudley added, “When Slipknot asks you to come along for a summer of insanity, there are exactly zero questions to ask. You say yes. This is absolutely going to be one for the books….and we’re ready.”
And lastly, Code Orange drummer/vocalist Jami Morgan states, “We’re very grateful to get the opportunity to do a full tour with Slipknot on the Knotfest Roadshow. Slipknot is one of the bands that we have had at the top of our list to be able to open for and hopefully be exposed to their amazing, cultural crowd that’s been around for a really long time. We’re very much looking forward to showing some new people what we can do.”
