PiercingMetal Thoughts: Sadly the touring cancellations are no longer new news. I was looking forward to the NYC show and seeing Slipknot decimate the place but in truth, safety is the paramount mission right now. Right now there aren’t any rescheduled dates to share with you but as soon as we learn of anything I will add the updates to our Events Calendar. What do you think about this news? Chime in down below in the comments. See you next time with hopefully a different sort of announcement.
Clearly the guys in Slipknot are not sitting idly by and discussing their past accomplishments over a cigar and a glass of wine and instead keep on pushing their musical envelope with their live concert experiences. You might remember our recent announcement about the “Knotfest At Sea” (click the text for more) and now they have revealed their star-studded crew of Metal bands joining in on this inaugural cruise. Read on.

KORN changed the world with the release of their self-titled debut album. It was a record that would pioneer a movement and blur genres, while the band’s enduring success points to a larger cultural moment. The FADER notes, “There was an unexpected opening in the pop landscape and KORN articulated a generational coming-of-angst for a claustrophobic, self-surveilled consciousness. KORN became the soundtrack for a generation’s arrival as a snarling, thrashing, systemically-restrained freak show.” Since forming, KORN has sold 40 million albums worldwide, collected two GRAMMYS, toured the world countless times, and set many records in the process that will likely never be surpassed. Vocalist Jonathan Davis, guitarists James “Munky” Shaffer and Brian “Head” Welch, bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu, and drummer Ray Luzier, have continued to push the limits of the rock, alternative and metal genres, while remaining a pillar of influence for legions of fans and generations of artists around the globe. The level of KORN’s reach transcends accolades and platinum certifications. They are “a genuine movement in a way bands cannot be now,” attests The Ringer. They represent a new archetype and radical innovation, their ability to transcend genre makes barriers seem irrelevant.
About Faith No More:
Faith No More is Mike Bordin (drums), Roddy Bottum (keyboards), Bill Gould (bass), Jon Hudson (guitar), and Mike Patton (vocals). The San Francisco-born, platinum-selling band have released seven studio albums: We Care A Lot (1985), Introduce Yourself (1987), The Real Thing (1989), Angel Dust (1992), King For A Day… Fool For A Lifetime (1995), Album of the Year (1997) and Sol Invictus (2015). Sol Invictus debuted atop the international sales charts: #2 in Australia, #4 in Germany, and #6 in both the U.S. and UK. Rolling Stone dubbed the 10-song album “triumphant,” the New Yorker called it “a reminder of everything that made Faith No More great in the first place,” and the Los Angeles Times said, “Faith No More has a history of defying expectations, and that’s what it’s doing again with Sol Invictus.”
From the looks of it, it would seem that the chaotic musical enterprise known as Slipknot, is looking to make sure that they entertain as many of the worlds “maggots” as possible. It wasn’t that long ago when they shared the news about the first-ever “Knotfest UK
” (discussed HERE) and then it was the revealed “Knotfest At Sea” (discussed HERE). Now to start your Wednesday off right, the band has announced the return of the Knotfest Roadshow. All of the scoop is for your consumption down below.
The Press Release:
Following the enormous success of 2019’s inaugural KNOTFEST ROADSHOW tour, the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning hard rock band, SLIPKNOT have announced that they will once again be hitting the road this summer to headline the KNOTFEST ROADSHOW 2020 North American tour produced by Live Nation. Joining them and rounding out a killer line-up showcasing the best the world of heavy music has to offer, will be special guests, A Day To Remember, Underoath and Code Orange.
