Knotfest Roadshow is back. Following the inaugural 2019 run, which featured openers Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth, Slipknot have announced the tour's latest edition: a 2020 run that will include support from special guest A Day to Remember, Underoath and Code Orange. See dates below.
Frontman Corey Taylor enthused, "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."
The support acts are equally, if not more, excited about the jaunt with A Day to Remember guitarist Neil Westfall adding, "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 keyboardist Chris Dudley commented, "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."
Finally, Code Orange vocalist, drummer and ringleader Jami Morgan said, "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."
