The band’s current album, the critically lauded We Are Not Your Kind is highlighted by the singles, Nero Forte, Solway Firth, and the LP’s lead track Unsainted, which was recently certified Gold in the U.S. The three tracks feature an M.

About SLIPKNOT: SLIPKNOT sit alongside musical institutions like Metallica and Iron Maiden, as

one of a select few bands whose legacy is secured within heavy music's elite. The band emerged at

the end of the 20th Century from the American mid-western town of Des Moines, IA and quickly

established themselves as the most enigmatic, provocative and aggressive music collective of the

modern era. 1999’s eponymous debut is widely viewed as a modern day classic and was honoured

by Metal Hammer magazine as the ‘Best Debut of the Last 25 Years.’ The release racked up

double RIAA platinum certification in the US, with many of SLIPKNOT’s subsequent releases

achieving platinum status both in the US and around the globe. To date, the band have been

nominated for 10 Grammy Awards (winning in 2006 for ‘Before I Forget’), as well as scoring 12

Platinum and 41 Gold album certifications around the world and over 3.2 billion YouTube views and

counting. SLIPKNOT’s fanbase is as unwavering as it is ubiquitous - the band’s most recent studio

album, 2019’s ‘We Are Not Your Kind’ debuted at #1 in the Official Album Charts of 12 countries

around the world, including the US, UK, Australia, Canada and Mexico and in the Top 5 of an

additional 12 countries including Germany, France and Sweden.

About KNOTFEST: KNOTFEST is SLIPKNOT’s own self-curated, destination festival brand,

currently held in four international locations; the US, Japan, Mexico and Colombia, with the

inaugural Brazilian event set to happen in December 2021. Plans for the first UK event are still

underway, having been postponed in 2019 by Covid-19 restrictions. Designed as an immersive,

unforgettable, ‘dark carnival experience’, the event invites you into SLIPKNOT’s apocalyptic

underworld where stunning visuals, fire breathers and nightmarish creatures on stilts set the stage

for an intoxicating and memorable weekend of live music.
