In the last couple of days, we’ve talked about mostly happy news about date announcements and reschedulings. Slipknot was also one of the bands that announced their North America tour and make fans happy. But this time they have some bad news. Europen fans might not like these updates.
We are all happy for the world is reopening now after Covid-19. Some countries are acting faster while they are vaccinating more and more people every day. America seems to be one of them since huge bands and musicians started announcing their concert and tour dates. Earlier this month, heavy metal band Slipknot announced that they were going to be on tour this September until November. Their Slipknot Knotfest Roadshow will start right after Slipknot Knotfest Festival. On the tour, they will be accompanied by Killswitch Engage, Fever 333, and Code Orange.
While they are preparing for their upcoming events and tours, there is also other happy news from Slipknot. First, they are preparing to finish their new album, a follow-up for their 2019’s We Are Not Your Kind. In their recent interviews, they said that they are going to finish this album by the end of this July. We haven’t seen a release date and more information on that follow-up both they are going to give something to fans soon.
The second news is not about the whole Slipknot but the Slipknot percussionist Michael Shawn Crahan, or with his widely known name, Clown. Earlier today, Clown shared 2 new songs. These songs are from his solo work and a quite different from the usual Slipknot sound.
They were also planning to do a European tour but fans will need to wait for a while to see Slipknot in Europe. The 2021 tour is postponed to 2022 and if everything goes well, Slipknot starts their Europe tour in July 2022 from Russia. They will be on tour until August, where will be on stage for Wacken Open Air. Below this page, you can find the updated tour dates for Slipknot Europe Tour.
