In addition, Slipknot will headline both festivals with the support bills now revealed as well. Knotfest Chile has Slipknot playing with Mr. Bungle, Bring Me the Horizon, Trivium, Sepultura and Vended, while Knotfest Brasil has Bring Me the Horizon, Mr. Bungle, Trivium, Motionless in White, Vended, Project 46 and Armored Dawn.

The two new Knotfest bills are helping to further the Knotfest brand. Slipknot will return to Knotfest action with Knotfest Iowa taking place at the National Balloon Classic Field in Indianola on Sept. 25 of this year. Slipknot will then follow with the Knotfest Roadshow tour featuring Killswitch Engage, Fever 333 and Code Orange as support. The band also has a Knotfest California in the works, playing Banc of California stadium in Los Angeles on Nov. 5. You can see all of the band's scheduled dates here.

Meanwhile, Slipknot have used the recent downtime to start work on a new album. This comes as singer Corey Taylor has released his CMFT solo album and toured over the past year and percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan issued a number of solo soundscape releases earlier this summer.
