Slipknot is set to take its soon-to-be-number-one album .5: The Gray Chapter on the road this weekend. The metal group will kick off its "Prepare for Hell" tour with headlining performances at Knotfest in San Bernardino, California on Saturday and Sunday. 

The festival, which opens tonight with a kickoff party, will also feature sets from Danzig, Anthrax, Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, and many more.  After that Slipknot is scheduled to hit the road with Korn and Kings 810 starting Wednesday in El Paso, Texas.  

Slipknot released .5: The Gray Chapter earlier this week, and "Billboard" says it's on track to sell 100-thousand copies.  That should be enough to give the band its second number one album on the Billboard 200.
