(UK) The multi-platinum, Grammy-Award-winning, masked beast that is Slipknot is set to play a string of UK arena shows in February 2016. After their triumphant return headlining this year’s Download Festival at Donington Park, the metal icons return to these shores with their visually arresting, chaotic and spectacular shows.
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor comments: “Any time we get the chance to come over to the UK, it’s awesome. Hopefully the fans have as much fun as we do. We’ll be putting together a great set for them, and as we fill out the bill with bands, we hope the excitement gets even bigger.”
Slipknot’s current album, ‘5; The Gray Chapter‘ is in stores now. The incendiary band are also set to announce further European shows and premiere their new video for ‘XIX’ at 5pm UK time on Monday 5th October over at their official website.
