PREPARE FOR HELL TOUR FEATURING KORN & KING 810
Slipknot emerged at the tail end of the Twentieth Century and quickly established itself as the most enigmatic, provocative and aggressive collective of the modern era. 1999’s SLIPKNOT stands as a true milestone, named by Metal Hammer as the “Best Debut of the Last 25 Years.” The album fast earned 2x RIAA platinum certification, with each of Slipknot’s following releases – including 4 video albums – all receiving additional platinum in the US and around the world. All told, the band have 11 Platinum and 38 Gold record certifications around the world. Slipknot's fanbase is unwavering and they are global - the band’s most recent studio effort, 2008’s platinum certified ALL HOPE IS GONE, debuted at #1 in seven countries including the U.S.
Surely as iconic as any band in the annals of rock, Slipknot has starred on the cover of innumerable national and international publications, from Rolling Stone, SPIN, and Alternative Press to Guitar World, Revolver and Billboard. What’s more, Slipknot has received myriad honors, awards and nominations, including a GRAMMY AWARD® for “Best Metal Performance” as well as six further GRAMMY nods, multiple Kerrang! Awards, Revolver Golden Gods Awards, NME Awards and Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards as well as nods for both MTV Video Music Awards and MTV Europe Music Awards.
Slipknot has ruled live stages across the planet since their beginning, and currently headline tours and international festivals including Mayhem in the US, the UK’s Download Festival, Brazil’s Monsters of Rock and Rock In Rio, Australia’s Soundwave Festival, and the bands own Ozzfest and Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. 2012 saw the inaugural KNOTFEST draw over 45,000 fans to a pair of daylong festival events headlined and curated by the band.
