Slipknot postpone Knotfest Brasil to December 2022
The Iowa metal legends’ first-ever Knotfest in Brazil was originally due to take place on December 19 this year, but has now been pushed back precisely 364 days to December 18, 2022.
“Knotfest Brasil has been postponed to December 18, 2022,” say the band. “It was not an easy decision, but necessary for the safety of fans, production team and artists.”
As is pretty much standard now, tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled event, with Slipknot confirming that the official line-up announcement will arrive on August 17 – so watch this space…
In happier news, though, Clown revealed earlier this month that Slipknot’s new LP is coming along nicely.
“We still have a lot of time to complete this,” he said. “We’re hoping to be done by the end of July. I believe that this album is… It’s God music, man. It’s the centre of the beast for me. This is a whole other element.
“We as a band have been trying to facilitate certain ideas in recording and songwriting,” he continued. “Songwriting isn’t always just giving our fans Psychosocials and Surfacings – without saying it, sometimes we can write those songs in our sleep; it’s so in us. It’s what we don’t know and what we don’t know how to pull out is what is the love for humanity. I wanna make a difference.
“I don’t do a lot of charity because I believe what I’m doing onstage is my charity. It’s bringing everyone together for a night. I just think what we’re doing now is really… There’s a lot of things going on. One, we’re getting off our label [after the album]. And I feel free. It’s got nothing to do with what’s next. It’s just got to do with. Get the hell away from me.’”
