The kings of metal are back! Czech Republic loves Slipknot and Slipknot loves Czech Republic. CZ fans have already confirmed this a few times with the band, most recently at a mind-blowing show at Prague’s O2 arena in July this year. The cult around the frontman Cory Taylor and his loyal masked colleagues has a legion of followers by its side growing every day, proudly calling themselves the “Maggots”. Once you become a member of the family, there’s no turning back. Not that you can’t, but you just won’t want to. They grab and don’t let go, the love for metal and Slipknot is for life.
The recruitment of new Maggots members is scheduled for June 8, 2023, the first day of Rock for People 2023!
Selling out shows on multiple continents, they deliver an irreplicable multi-sensory experience on tour and through their own festival KNOTFEST. With their seventh album THE END, SO FAR, SLIPKNOT are back, and nothing will be the same again.
There was never a band like SLIPKNOT, and there will never be another. Like a spore out of the Midwest, they’ve quietly bloomed into the most uncompromising, undeniable, and unique presence on the planet whose influence transcends genres and generations. Since sowing the seeds for revolution in Iowa during 1999, these musical outliers have captured a GRAMMY Award alongside 10 nominations, scored 12 Platinum / 41 Gold album certifications around the world, and logged over 8.5 billion global streams and 3.5 billion video views to date – unprecedented for a rock act in this generation or any other. Rolling Stone cited the seminal platinum-selling 2001 album Iowa among “The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time,” while The Ringer attested, “They’re the most important heavy band of their era.” In addition to marking the group’s third consecutive #1 debut on the Billboard Top 200, their sixth full-length album, WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND, bowed at #1 in twelve countries worldwide in 2019.
