Slipknot’s Knotfest Roadshow was set to launch this weekend, but was postponed due to COVID-19. Instead, they’re moving the Knotfest celebration online.
Slipknot has relaunched their Knotfest site as a content hub, featuring interviews, concerts, new series, and more. The site will now offer a steady stream of news, interviews, performances, and new merch.
“We are excited to announce today that we have launched a brand new online community at Knotfest.com, created for those seeking a global multi-media hub for news, exclusive interviews, performances, merchandise and more dedicated to covering the very best of art, music, culture and media for fans of heavy culture,” the band said in a statement.
“With this newly re-imagined site, we’re able to be a fan-centered platform, created by artists for their fans. Dedicated to expanding the rock and metal genres and providing a one-stop destination showcasing the very best the culture has to offer.”
To kick off the reimagined site, Knotfest will stream concerts by Slipknot, Underoath, and Code Orange starting this Friday, May 29th at 6 PM ET/3 PM PT.
The site will also feature a new interview series from percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan. The first episode featuring Code Orange singer Jami Morgan is up now. You can also find other podcasts and interviews as well as curated playlists from members of Killswitch Engage and Periphery on the site.
