There’s Slipknot news aplenty this morning.
Weird. Of all the days there’d be heavy Slipknot news, it’s gotta be my birthday.
The ‘Knot has revealed the dates for their North American “Prepare For Hell” tour, promoted exclusively by Live Nation.
It is set to kick off immediately following the band’s previously announced Knotfest in late October.
The tour — in support of the forthcoming .5: The Gray Chapter album — will feature very special guests Korn and another band we dare not speak of here.
The tour will kick off October 29 in El Paso, Texas, and traversing North America through December 7.
So, I guess Slipknot’s a bigger band than Korn? I wouldn’t have thought so, but I guess it’s true.
“We’ve been waiting a long time for this,” stated Corey Taylor. “Not only do we get to tour with friends who we respect, we’ve also chosen a band that represents the fury of the future. Slipknot is coming to your town. And hell’s coming with us.”
