Slipknot Sells Out Homecoming Show at Iowa State Fair Grandstand

SLIPKNOT has sold-out their homecoming show at the Iowa State Fair Grandstand. On August 10th a capacity crowd of 16,000 will pack the Grandstand for a historic moment, SLIPKNOT’s first ever show at the Des Moines, Iowa fairgrounds.  The momentous performance will see SLIPKNOT celebrating the release of their long-awaited new studio album set to arrive on August 9th.

“This is big for us,” notes the band’s own M. Shawn Crahan.  “I watched Metallica, from the outside – I didn’t have anyone to take me in.  The fair is, and was always, about music – main stage, little stages, even little puppet stages.  But there was livestock, agriculture, games – even the police had a presence there, showing crime scene photos to kids so they’d understand the world a bit better.  It was chaos.  As a kid, this was our internet. To have sold this out, this early, is intense.”

Named by Vulture as on one of “36 Albums We Can’t Wait to Hear in 2019,” SLIPKNOT’s forthcoming LP has quickly become one of the most anticipated albums of the year.  Brooklyn Vegan attested, “No matter what you thought of Slipknot 15 or 20 years ago, there’s no denying that their impact looms large over some of the most widely respected aggressive music today.” Major details regarding SLIPKNOT’s new album are set to be released in the coming weeks.

This summer SLIPKNOT will embark on their Knotfest Roadshow headline tour set to traverse across North America with Volbeat, Gojira, and Behemoth joining as special guests on all dates. Produced by Live Nation, the 29-city outing will kick off July 26th in Mountain View, CA at Shoreline Amphitheater and continue through September 8th where it will conclude with a performance at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, TX (see itinerary below).  For tickets and more information on SLIPKNOT’s Knotfest Roadshow, visit www.knotfestroadshow.com.

SLIPKNOT shocked fans around the globe last year with the release of a brand new track, “All Out Life.”  Reaction to the unrelenting track was staggering, with the official music video – directed by the band’s own M. Shawn Crahan – trending Top Ten of all videos worldwide on YouTube in its first day on the band’s official YouTube channel.  In the four months since release, “All Out Life” has already racked up over 33 million streams worldwide across digital service providers and 35 million YouTube views.  “All Out Life” is available now at all digital service providers.
