Slipknot Announce Knotfest Roadshow With A Day To Remember, Underoath And Code Orange
Slipknot have announced the second-ever Knotfest Roadshow.
Following on from last year’s touring festival with Behemoth, Volbeat and Gojira, the 2020 Knotfest Roadshow will feature a headline set from Slipknot alongside performances from A Day To Remember, Underoath and Code Orange.
“We set a precedent last year – Knotfest is a showcase where you never know what to expect,” says Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor. “This year is no exception. The bands we have represent all corners of our musical world, just like we do. And they’re exciting as hell. I can’t wait to watch and enjoy them along with the rest of the fans.”
“We are stoked to share the stage with a band that has defined heavy music for an entire generation. This tour will be one of the best live shows this year,” adds ADTR’s Neil Westfall.
The 17-date trek kicks off in Syracuse, New York, on May 30 and climaxes at The Woodlands in Texas on June 25.
“We’re very grateful to get the opportunity to do a full tour with Slipknot on the Knotfest Roadshow,” says Code Oragen’s Jami Morgan. “Slipknot is one of the bands that we have had at the top of our list to be able to open for and hopefully be exposed to their amazing, cultural crowd that’s been around for a really long time. We’re very much looking forward to showing some new people what we can do.”
Tickets go on sale February 7 and 10am local time.
