It’s been 2008 since Slipknot released an album but they’ve been tapped to headline Rockstar’s Mayhem Festival. The Des Moines, Iowa (wait, what?) troupe has been prolific since their formation in 1995. Spotify’s description of Slipknot’s music as a “mix of grinding, post-Korn alternative metal, Marilyn Mason-esque neo-shock rock and rap-metal” was instrumental into putting them into the forefront of the nu-metal explosions of the 90s. Probably more so than their music is Slipknot’s stage presence as they perform in industrial jump suits with horrifying and spooky masks. Each of the nine members loses his identity on stage and in lieu of a name, adopts a number, zero through eight.

Corey Taylor of Slipknot says “You knew we’d be back. Now, you know we’re coming. This will be a tour people will scarcely want to miss. It will definitely be a show to remember. Can’t wait to see the states again from behind a mask.”

The festival will visit 26 cities over five weeks. Not only will Slipknot headline, but so will legendary metal band Slayer and another band soon to be announced. These three bands will be supported by Anthrax, The Devil Wears Prada, As I Lay Dying, Asking Alexandria, Whitechapel, and High On Fire. A few of these bands will be on either the Vans Warped Tour 2012 or at Bamboozle 2012.
