The first wave of bands for this year’s Knotfest At Sea has been announced, along with a ton of Knot-related activities.

It’s been several months since Slipknot announced that they would be hosting their first-ever Knotfest At Sea cruise, and now the Iowa titans have revealed who else will be joining them on board.

As well as confirming a host of Slipknot-related activities across the August 10 – 14 event, the band have announced that Anthrax, Behemoth, DevilDriver, Sevendust, Skindred, Ho99o9, Higher Power and Sleep Token will also be performing at Knotfest At Sea, with more bands to be announced soon, too.

Maggots and Legions!” exclaims Behemoth frontman Nergal. Our momentous tour with Slipknot comes to an end in a few days and it’s been our biggest in Europe to date! But I’m beyond excited that our comradeship with Slipknot ain’t over yet… for we’re teaming up with them again for Knotfest At Sea! We look forward to feasting again this summer!”
