Slipknot, the notorious heavy metal band, will pass through Brooklyn and Albany this May. This information comes amidst the announcement of Knotfest Roadshow 2022. Special guests Cypress Hill and Ho99o9 are expected to join Slipknot amidst the second leg of their tour and will perform in the two New York venues.
Slipknot was first formed in 1995 in Des Moines, Iowa and their 1999 debut self-titled album propelled them to international fame, selling over two million US copies to date. Since then, the band has dominated the heavy metal scene for over twenty years. Their most recent studio album, We Are Not Your Kind, was released in 2019 and debuted at #1 in 12 countries, including the US, UK, Australia, Canada, and Mexico.
The Grammy-award-winning band announces their 2022 tour following the success of Knotfest Roadshow 2021, which sold out amphitheaters across the country. Moreover, Slipknot’s highly anticipated seventh studio album is expected to drop this year, and their 2021 single, “The Chapeltown Rag,” which debuted at Knotfest Los Angeles, has fans craving for more music. Former Knotfest attendees describe the event as an immersive, apocalyptic, and unforgettable experience.
Hip hop groups Cypress Hill and Ho99o9 are also set to follow Slipknot on the second leg of their tour and will be joining the band in Brooklyn and Albany. Cypress Hill initially gained notoriety from 90’s rap songs such as “Insane in the Brain” and “Hits from the Bong.” Since then the group has dabbled in numerous other genres and gained respect from the likes of rock legends Mike Shinoda and Tom Morello. To this day, the group remains a permanent staple of the 90s West Coast hip hop scene. Ho99o9, on the other hand, is a horrorcore rap group, more emblematic of the metal themes that Slipknot portrays. Their music is significantly more uproaring in the way it mirrors and pays respect to heavy metal vocals. The group may not be well known, but they have gained respect between the genres that they envelop, working with the likes of rapper GHOSTEMANE and industrial metal band 3TEETH.
Listed below are the tour dates and venues for Knotfest Roadshow 2022. Brooklyn will host the band at Barclays Center on May 20th and Albany will host the band at MVP Arena on May 24th.
