After a leak over the weekend, Slipknot have confirmed that they will indeed be headlining their own music festival called Knotfest. Moreover, it has now been revealed that the festival will be staged on two separate dates in Iowa and Wisconsin in August.
Slipknot had teased that a big announcement was coming on Monday, June 4, via their Twitter page on Saturday (June 2), but it looks like the folks at Ticketmaster have let the news ... slip. It appears the band will headline their own Knotfest in their home state of Iowa on Aug. 17, and the bill will also feature Deftones, Lamb of God, Serj Tankian, Dethklok, the Urge and Prong.
System of a Down and Deftones have announced dates for a joint North American summer tour that is sure to be one of the hottest tickets in 2012. The trek will hit East Coast and Midwest cities in August, with SOAD headlining and Deftones providing direct support.
System of a Down and Deftones are teasing what looks to be a Monday (April 23) announcement of a joint North American tour. Hot on the heels of the news that they both will be playing Heavy MTL and Heavy T.O. festivals up in Canada this summer, it looks like more dates together are in the works, as the bands used their social media and online properties to drop obvious hints.
Eight new bands have been added to the lineups for the Canadian Heavy MTL and Heavy T.O. festivals in August. Deftones, Dethklok, Voivod, Sword, Trivium, Emmure, Diemonds and Dance Laury Dance will perform at the shows in Toronto and Montreal.
Deftones recently wrapped up pre-production on their seventh studio album and have set a date of July 9 to enter the studio for the new recording. The disc will be the follow-up to their 2010 release ‘Diamond Eyes.’
