Slipknot Announce Spring 2015 Headlining Tour With Hatebreed
Slipknot have announced dates for a spring U.S. headlining tour with support from Hatebreed. The next stateside leg of Slipknot's ‘Prepare For Hell’ trek kicks off in April and will see that band playing headlining shows, as well as slots on some previously announced major festivals including Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville, Fla., Carolina Rebellion in Concord, N.C., and Rock on the Range in Columbus, Ohio.
The band is currently touring in the U.K. and will head to Europe at the end of January. They’ll remain in Europe until they head to Australia at the end of February. They kick things off stateside when they headline Fort Rock in Fort Meyers, Fla. on April 25.
Fans can expect Slipknot to play tracks from their most recent disc, ‘.5: The Gray Chapter,’ during the continuation of their tour. It's their first disc since 2008’s ‘All Hope Is Gone,’ and has been massively successful for the group, debuting in the top spot on the Billboard 200 Album chart.
