Slipknot Will Be Back On The Road In 2012!


Shawn Crahan, better known as Slipknot's drummer Clown has confirmed in a Facebook post that the band will be "touring by next June." Frontman, Corey Taylor had already hinted at this tour in a Twitter post just last week.

While still unconfirmed by the band's management, it's thought that this will be an American tour only, with European fans having to wait just a bit longer.

If they go ahead, these shows will be the band’s first USA dates since the death of bassist Paul Gray, who died of a drug overdose in May 2010. Slipknot recently completed a European tour with original guitarist Donnie Steele filling in for Gray.

Although a tour is promised, Crahan states, "There's no album yet because it's too soon and there are no songs yet because the band needs to come together to write the next one. Everything happens for a reason, so be ready."
