Slipknot To Tour Canada

Published: 2004-11-30
Before they head off to the land down under, Iowa's favourite Halloween-mask clad rockers will embark on a short tour of Canada. Although Slipknot's tour is relatively short, the band will hit more Canadian cities than most do. Not content sticking to just one end of the country, Slipknot will play in 6 towns from Quebec City all the way to Vancouver City.

The tour will kick off early in the New Year, with the first performance happening on January 7th in Quebec, and the last on January 16th in Vancouver. Along for the ride on Slipknot's 2005 tour are openers Unearth, and heavy metal quartet Killswitch Engage.

The members of Slipknot are out globe trekking in order to support their newest studio-album 'Vol. 3 The Subliminal Verses'. The 14-track record is the band's fourth full-length album, and was unleashed upon the world in May 2004. Quickly approaching their tenth year as a band, Slipknot's released their debut 'Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat' in the summer of 1996 before being signed to current label Roadrunner Records.

January 8 Montreal, QC - Stade Uniprix
