In case you didn’t notice, we’re big fans of the new Worm record around these parts.
We’ll kick Friday off with Earthless, who have announced some early 2022 tour dates. Tickets went on sale today for their run of 10 dates that beginning on January 27th in Los Angeles and end February 8th in Phoenix.
Can’t find a way to attend Knotfest Los Angeles? Well, you’re in the luck. The performance will be streamed live, taking place on November 5th, and tickets can be purchased here. As far as Slipknot goes, this is their first ever live stream, and the footage will be available for an additional 72 hours after the show.
Massacre is always the right way to close a week. Side note: I’m only just now appreciating how incredible their logo is. Anyway, check out the gnarly new clip for “Return of the Corpse Grinder” below. The uncensored version was understandably banned from YouTube, but you can peep that here if you feel up to it. Resurgence is out now on Nuclear Blast.
Happy Tuesday, everyone. I missed yesterday’s news because work was just that. much. fun.
Let’s start with a tour, because seeing those again still makes me happy. August Burns Red have announced a headlining tour in celebration of the 10th anniversary of Leveler. Those dates are in September and October, with support provided by Fit For A King, Erra, and Like Moths To Flames. Tickets go on sale Friday here, and feel free to pick up a copy of that record here.
The biggest news of the day probably came from Slipknot, who have announced Knotfest Iowa 2021, as well as a return to the studio. Most importantly, that festival is set for September 25th, and will feature the likes of Trivium, Faith No More, Megadeth, and so many more. Get all the details at this location.
Let’s begin with a tour. Those are always fun and easy. Exist have announced that they will be joining Monotheist and Replacire for a brief tour this coming February. Mostly east coast dates, which is good news for me.
In a huge development from this past weekend, Knotfest Mexico didn’t go so well.Slipknot had to cancel their headlining appearance because fans had broken the barricade directly in front of the stage. In response? Said fans lit stuff on fire. Yay! (And by yay I mean boooo.)
Currents dropped a new music video for “Poverty of Self” a couple days ago. Their second studio album will be out sometime next spring, but you can catch them on a few more European dates through the 7th. Anyway, enjoy the vid.
So for those unaware, the Knotfest Roadshow is officially underway. Slipknot always bring out the adrenaline in their audiences, and the show in San Bernardino last Saturday was no exception. In fact, Corey Taylor stopped midway through a song because the pits were getting particularly dangerous.
If you are in the UK, you might be interested the first wave of bands announced for the Chaos Theory Festival. The event takes place February 29th, 2020 and so far we know Vodun, Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard, and Gold will be there.
Would you like to djent away the rest of the day? If so, here’s a new video from Hyaena for a track called “Stolen Hero”. They have a new album called Poison Pen dropping later this fall.
“When it’d appear, the dawn of twilight, I felt my rightful way. I was so cold, the blood in me, the dawn, the crystal glow of night. High above, the crystal glow.”
This was teased for a few days, and now we get our big news. Ozzfest Meets Knotfest. This is going to be a MASSIVE back to back festival weekend. The headliners? Equally as massive. Black Sabbath will be headlining day 1.
