Slipknot have also confirmed the exciting news that they have returned to the studio last month to work on new music. The band will deliver updates soon.
With Slipknot bringing their live experience home once more to their native Iowa, Clown tells us: “A home show is always insane, but a home “Knotfest” show will be on a whole other level. Prepare. See you soon for the new reality. Stay (sic).”
