Knotfest Announce In Flames And Suicide Silence Streams
Up first, Sweden’s In Flames will be streaming their headline performance from Wacken Festival in 2018 on June 5, with the news of the stream pairing with the band marking the 20th anniversary of their Clayman record.
Two weeks later, California deathcore mob Suicide Silence will unleash their 2015 Mental Health America benefit show on June 19, with frontman Eddie Hermida explaining: “While originally organized as a benefit for Mental Health America, we feel it’s necessary to repurpose this with an overall message of ‘Peace, Love & Respect’ as we stream this performance in its entirety for the first time ever in cooperation with the great folks at Knotfest.”
Between the two sets, on June 12 Knotfest are teasing “a major unannounced festival event”, with details still to come – so stay tuned for more on that soon.
Until then, watch the teaser for In Flames’ The Clayman Returns below:
