As part of their ‘We Are Not Your Kind’ Tour, Slipknot will be back to Singapore as one of the stops on their Asia dates.
One of the most popular bands in the nu-metal explosion of the late 1990s and early 2000s, Slipknot were formed in late 1995 in Des Moines, Iowa; after some early personnel shifts, the nine-piece lineup settled around.
Slipknot's blueprint for nu-metal success was set with their theatrical, attention-grabbing image - the band would always perform in identical industrial jumpsuits and homemade Halloween masks, and their mysterious anonymity by adopting the numbers zero through eight as stage aliases. Add to that a lyrical preoccupation with darkness and nihilism, and a name for their fans ("Maggots"). Emerging in 1995, the Grammy Award-winning issued their eponymous debut album in 1999 and went mainstream with subsequent gold and platinum efforts like Iowa (2001), All Hope Is Gone (2008), and We Are Not Your Kind (2019).
Slipknot is a genuine sonic phenomenon, a nine-piece force of nature and one of heavy music’s most important, recognizable, uncompromising and creatively ingenious bands. The metal heavyweights’ visually arresting, incendiary and spectacular shows have become the stuff of legend, and this performance will surely not disappoint!
