Slipknot have been confirmed as one of the headliners of Sonisphere 2011 Kerrang! can reveal.
Sonisphere, which will be the band's first show together since the tragic death of bassist Paul Gray in May, is set to take place at Knebworth Park between July 8 - 10 next year.
An official statement from the band reads as follows:
"We're looking forward to spending our summer in Europe. This tour is about us and our fans. It's about celebrating the life of our brother, Paul and his legacy. The door is neither open nor closed. This tour is about burning down that door. See you [next]summer."
Look out for another exciting announcement on Monday, and be sure to pick up a copy of next week's Kerrang! magazine to see what frontman Corey Taylor has to say about the future of the band.
