Slipknot to celebrate 25 years of the self titled record on “Here Comes The Pain” summer tour

Slipknot are treating this summer like its 1999. After a special intimate California show which saw members rock old school outfits and new masks (as well as debuted new members including Eloy Casagrande), the band has announced they’ll take the show on the road this summer. Celebrating the 1999 self titled release the band has announced a two leg North American tour this summer. On both legs hardcore heavyweights Knocked Loose will be direct support and Orbit Culture and Vended will each open one of the legs.

Tickets will be available to the general public on Friday, May 3 at 10 AM Local here. See below for a full list of dates including Slipknot’s homecoming performance at Knotfest Iowa in which the band will play a unique set drawing heavily from their 1999 debut, celebrating 25 years of the self-titled album along with their fans.

“We loved what we did with the first record but we didn’t even know if there was gonna be anything after that,” recalls guitarist Jim Root“We just wanted people to hear it. Selling out of records and shows, having successful tours– those are goals for any band. But the dream scenario in some ways, came true for us.”

“Every time I’ve walked on stage, it’s never been about how many people have been there because my culture, the maggots, always show up,” says founding member Shawn “clown” Crahan with a smile.

“But as we’ve grown as a band, we have had fewer and fewer of those intimate, personal moments, trading them for massive ones. So we’re gonna make it more personal on the anniversary, but how remains to be seen. Just get ready to have your face kicked in. Because we just do what we do, spread that maggot culture – that disease. And you’ve been infected.”
