Metal titans Slipknot have announced the 2022 iteration of their Knotfest Roadshow tour.

The 38-date North American jaunt is split into two legs, the first of which will run from March 16 through April 17, and will feature In This Moment and Jinjer as opening acts. The second will run from May 18 to June 18, and will feature Cypress Hill and Ho99o9 as openers.

“It feels so good to get back out on the road with our Culture," said Slipknot's percussionist, backing vocalist and co-founder, Shawn Crahan, in a statement. "Get ready for a brand new experience. See you soon.”

“Even with everything going on in the world right now, we’re still extremely excited to come back out in the States, with 2 different, exciting packages," added the band's frontman, Corey Taylor. "Whether it’s In This Moment and Jinjer, or Cypress and Ho99o9, we pride ourselves in bringing our fans the epicenter of our music and art. Come celebrate with us, and try to stay as safe as we will be.”

2021 saw the Iowa nine-piece release a chaotic comeback single, The Chapeltown Rag. Their first new music since the 2019 full-length, We Are Not Your Kind, the song sought to recreate the “frenetic” sound of their first two albums, Slipknot and Iowa.

It's the first volley from the band's as-yet-untitled, forthcoming album, which is expected to arrive at some point in 2022.
