Watch Vended’s impressive performance from Knotfest Iowa

See Vended make their major festival debut at Knotfest Iowa over the weekend…

Following the release of debut single Asylum last week, Vended experienced another first over the weekend: their debut performance at a major festival.

The young Des Moines band – who have so far only played a handful of shows – hit their home state’s Knotfest for a confident and aggressive set, which of course included a great run-through of Asylum.

Made up of Corey Taylor​’s son Griffin on vocals, Shawn Clown’ Crahan​’s son Simon on drums, plus guitarists Cole Espeland and Connor Grodzicki, and bassist Jeramiah Pugh, it’s easy (and probably a bit lazy) to say that the band take after their dads in Slipknot… but, well, it’s abundantly clear that their metal talent runs in the family.

Check out some fan-shot videos from their set at Knotfest Iowa below:

Vended will play Knotfest Los Angeles in November, plus Knotfest Chile and Knofest Brasil in 2022.
