This is what Clown and Corey Taylor had to say on the new tour announcement –
“It feels so good to get back out on the road with our Culture. Get ready for a brand new experience. See you soon.”
Corey Taylor adds:
“Even with everything going on in the world right now, we’re still extremely excited to come back out in the states, with 2 different, exciting packages. Whether it’s In This Moment and Jinjer, or Cypress and Ho99o9, we pride ourselves in bringing our fans the epicenter of our music and art. Come celebrate with us, and try to stay as safe as we will be.”
Slipknot sits alongside musical institutions like Metallica and Iron Maiden, as one of a select few bands whose legacy is secured within heavy music’s elite. The band emerged at the end of the 20th Century from the American mid-western town of Des Moines, IA, and quickly established themselves as the most enigmatic, provocative, and aggressive music collective of the modern era. 1999’s eponymous debut is widely viewed as a modern-day classic and was honored by Metal Hammer magazine as the ‘Best Debut of the Last 25 Years.’ The release racked up double RIAA platinum certification in the US, with many of Slipknot’s subsequent releases achieving platinum status both in the US and around the globe. To date, the band has been nominated for 10 Grammy Awards (winning in 2006 for ‘Before I Forget’), as well as scoring 12 Platinum and 41 Gold album certifications around the world and over 3.2 billion YouTube views and counting. Slipknot’s fanbase is as unwavering as it is ubiquitous – the band’s most recent studio album, 2019’s ‘We Are Not Your Kind’ debuted at #1 in the Official Album Charts of 12 countries around the world, including the US, UK, Australia, Canada and Mexico and in the Top 5 of an additional 12 countries including Germany, France, and Sweden.
Three decades ago, B-Real, Sen Dog, and DJ Muggs sparked a trip that left popular culture stoned, stunned, and staggering in anticipation for more. Naming themselves after a local street in Los Angeles, Cypress Hill burst on the scene in 1991 with the release of their self-titled debut album. The singles “How I Could Just Kill a Man” and “The Phuncky Feel One” became underground hits, and the group’s public pro-marijuana stance earned them many fans among the alternative rock community. Cypress Hill followed their debut with Black Sunday in the summer of 1993, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200, garnered three GRAMMY Award nominations, and went triple platinum in the U.S. As a result, Cypress Hill became the first rap group to have two albums in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 charts at the same time and are the first Latino-American hip-hop group to achieve platinum and multi-platinum success. Since the release of Black Sunday, Cypress Hill has put out seven more albums including 2018’s critically acclaimed, Elephants on Acid. Cypress Hill made history once again in 2019 when the group was honored with their very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2021, Cypress Hill released “Champion Sound.” Produced by Black Milk, the single appears on the soundtrack of R.B.I Baseball 21 and is also the featured song for the band’s partnership with Montejo Cerveza. 2021 also saw Cypress Hill celebrate the 30th anniversary of their self-titled debut this year with a SONY reissue on vinyl, a 7-inch box set, and a reissue across all DSPs that includes eight unreleased tracks, as well as a graphic novel and their very own STANCE sock. Their “Hits From The Bong” documentary, which is part of Mass Appeal’s “Hip Hop 50” franchise in partnership with Showtime, is out now!
Cypress Hill continues to be busier than ever, just released their tenth studio album Back In Black, which was produced entirely by Black Milk. To celebrate the album’s release, the group has released a new video for “Certified,” which was directed by Tillavision, who in 2021 created content in the 3D, AR (augmented reality), and VR (virtual reality) spaces for Swae Lee, Pop Smoke, JuiceWRLD, Young Dolph, Lyrical Lemonade, Bape, Chinatown Market, Chicago Bears, Patrick Mahomes, and Kyler Murray. Check out that video now!
Ho99o9 [HORROR] is a volatile conflagration of digital hardcore punk, gritty trap-infused hip hop, then cross-contaminated with explosive elements of industrial, electronic, metal, and noise. The experimental Avant-grarde project originated in New Jersey by Yeti Bones & theOGM, and is currently joined by drummer Billy Rymer of The Dillinger Escape Plan. Ho99o9 has built a cult-like following over the last decade, perpetually blazing around the globe laying waste with their legendary, visceral, live performances. Ho99o9’s completely unique and uncompromising style has created its own lane for the future of heavy, alternative music.
2021 marked a banner year for Slipknot. Making a triumphant return to the road, their Knotfest Roadshow 2021 tour sold-out amphitheaters across the country, bookended with the record-breaking Knotfest Iowa and the biggest headline show of their career, Knotfest Los Angeles at Banc of California Stadium where they debut their first new music in two years – the furious “The Chapeltown Rag” taken from the highly anticipated new Slipknot album, expected to release this year. In addition, they topped the bills of multiple, internationally renowned festivals including Riot Fest, Rocklahoma, Inkcarceration, Welcome To Rockville, and more.
Grab your tickets now to join in the fun and mayhem. With a new Slipknot album in the making, AND a new album by the legendary Cypress Hill, this tour it’s sure to have us dancing and banging our heads the entire time. Don’t get left out!
