Artist News Gigs & Festivals

Now, we’ve not checked this with every single band member, but we have been given this news by a very reliable source. So fingers crossed this won’t be another “Slipknot are back in the studio recording a new album, oh, actually, they’re not” scenario.

But, yes, Slipknot have announced they will return to the stage next summer and, among other things, will headline the UK date of the metal festival Sonisphere, which will take place from 8-10 Jul at Knebworth. The shows will be their first since the sudden death of bassist Paul Gray earlier this year.
