Slipknot are spending this year celebrating the 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut album, and they're keeping the plan announcements coming. After revealing a star-studded lineup for Knotfest Iowa on Monday (April 29), they announced a full-blown North American tour. And that's not all. They also unveiled the identity of their new drummer, and fan suspicions were right: it's ex-Sepultura drummer Eloy Casagrande.

“We loved what we did with the first record but we didn't even know if there was gonna be anything after that,” guitarist Jim Root recalled in a press release. “We just wanted people to hear it. Selling out of records and shows, having successful tours– those are goals for any band. But the dream scenario in some ways, came true for us.”

“Every time I've walked on stage, it's never been about how many people have been there because my culture, the maggots, always show up,” founding member Shawn “clown” Crahan added. “But as we’ve grown as a band, we have had fewer and fewer of those intimate, personal moments, trading them for massive ones. So we're gonna make it more personal on the anniversary, but how remains to be seen. Just get ready to have your face kicked in. Because we just do what we do, spread that maggot culture – that disease. And you've been infected.”

Knocked Loose is set to play support during the whole tour, with Orbit Culture and Vended playing select dates. See the announcement and full list of North American tour dates below.
