Slipknot & Korn Cross The Atlantic

The United Kingdom isn’t safe from the misery and nightmare of a Slipknot/Korn excursion. God Save The Queen because the “Prepare For Hell Tour” is heading to England, Scotland and Wales in January.

The North American leg of the trek begins Oct. 29 in El Paso, Texas, after Slipknot rocks Knotfest next weekend.

The masked heavy metal band is supporting its fifth studio album, .5: The Gray Chapter, which is due out Oct. 21. The title is a reference to founding member and bassist Paul Gray, who died in 2010. The LP marks the first Slipknot album since Gray died and drummer Joey Jordison parted ways with the band in 2013.
