Fan-filmed video footage of SLIPKNOT‘s June 16 performance at Ippodromo Delle Capannelle in Rome, Italy can be seen below.
SLIPKNOT‘s “Summer’s Last Stand” tour kicks off on July 24 in West Palm Beach, Florida, wrapping up six weeks later on September 5 in Dallas. Joining SLIPKNOT on the road trip will be LAMB OF GOD, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE and MOTIONLESS IN WHITE.
The summer jaunt follows a brief spring run that SLIPKNOT launched on April 25 at the Fort Rock festival in Fort Myers, Florida, ending on May 16 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
SLIPKNOT‘s new album, “.5: The Gray Chapter”, sold around 132,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on October 21, 2014 via Roadrunner.
A disgruntled former drumtech for SLIPKNOT last year revealed the identity of the band’s newest members by posting a picture of a backstage call sheet on Instagram.
The sheet, posted by Norm Costa, showed the names Jay Weinberg, their new drummer and Alessandro Venturella, the bassist. While the sheet didn’t point out who is who, Venturella‘s identity was pretty much revealed on accident in SLIPKNOT‘s music video for “The Devil In I”, where Venturella‘s hand tattoos were visible.
