Statements from Slipknot and Trivium:
"In light of global health concerns, Slipknot have decided to postpone their upcoming Asian tour, including Knotfest Japan. While decisions like this are not easy, the safety and well-being of the band’s fans always comes first. Furthermore, in this case, the bands and artists, crew and local employees are also equally affected, and as such, this was the only responsible decision that could be made. Slipknot and Knotfest will both return to Asia very soon, and at such time that everyone can be ensured of the best experience possible." – SLIPKNOT
"Due to circumstances outside of our control we have been forced to postpone all of our tour dates in March in Japan, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia. We also will not be making a scheduled press stop in Germany at this time. We hope to reschedule these dates very soon. Thanks, and stay safe out there." – TRIVIUM
All existing tickets purchased through SISTIC will remain valid for the Singapore rescheduled date so please hang on to your tickets. We are working with Slipknot & Trivium and their management on a new Singapore show date and aim to announce this very soon. We thank all fans for their patience and understanding.
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.
LAMC Productions has been eagerly waiting for Slipknot's heavily anticipated return to Singapore since their last concert here on 16 August 2005 at the Fort Canning Park. Relating to the same anticipation and longing of Slipknot’s fans, LAMC Productions’ co-founder Lauretta Alabons shared “We have been patiently waiting and hoping to bring Slipknot back to Singapore. The band has grown immensely into one of the biggest metal bands in the world; and we are excited to bring them on the release of their No.1 Album We Are Not Your Kind.”
ABOUT THE ARTIST
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).
“With their latest studio album, Slipknot have released one of the strongest albums in their career,” - Consequence of Sound
“The 'Knot's sixth album is an astonishing record.” - UK’s NME
The widely anticipated sixth LP, WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND is already available for streaming on all platforms. The LP is highlighted by early album tracks “Birth Of The Cruel,” “Solway Firth,” and the LP’s lead single “Unsainted.” Each has come with an M. Shawn Crahan directed official music video, and each has trended worldwide on YouTube (all videos, not just music) - “Unsainted” at #1 worldwide for a full 24 hours. All told, the band has amassed over 52 million views in only two months. SLIPKNOT shook the world once again with the worldwide live debuts of “Unsainted” and their 2018 single “All Out Life” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! - both of which have become the show’s most viewed music performances of 2019 on YouTube. “Solway Firth” is also joined by a Crahan directed official music video, featuring exclusive footage from the new Amazon Original series, “The Boys,” alongside live performance footage from SLIPKNOT’s recent headline festival run in Europe.
“Iowa’s greatest musical export has only improved on its genre-busting sound.” – Billboard
“The sheer ambition of WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND is just as staggering as their seminal record Iowa –the dynamic might be even better,” – The Independent
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!
LAMC Productions is thrilled to announce that American metal band Trivium will be joining Singapore Rockfest II on its second day as the opener for Slipknot on 24 March 2020!
The band has sold over one million albums worldwide and staged sold-out shows across the globe. Their 2015 album Silence in the Snow with 17,000 copies upon debut, bowed Top 20 on the Billboard Top 200 and claimed the #3 spot on the Top Rock Albums chart. ‘Until the World Goes Cold’ arrived as their biggest single to date, achieving the band’s first Top 10 at Active Rock and generating a staggering 17.1 million Spotify streams and 14.9 million YouTube/VEVO views and counting. This year, Trivium got a nomination at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards for Best Metal Performance.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Hailing from Orlando Florida, Trivium formed in 1999 and quickly built a buzz around Orlando's metal community with their blend of metalcore, thrash, and progressive metal. After getting signed to Roadrunner Records in 2004, the band has released eight studio albums and over twenty singles. Their latest album, The Sin and the Sentence, was released on October 20, 2017.
On their eighth full-length offering ‘The Sin and The Sentence [Roadrunner Records], Trivium chose the latter once again. In fact, the record represents an apotheosis of every element that at once defined the Florida group since its 1999 formation. Moments of malevolent melodicism give way to taut technical thrash, black metal expanse, punk spirit, andheavy heart tightly threaded together by the musical union of the quartet—Matt Heafy [vocals, guitar], Corey Beaulieu [guitar], Paolo Gregoletto [bass], and Alex Bent [drums]. Unsurprisingly, these eleven songs resulted from an unquenchable hunger for improvement. “It was a do-or-die moment,” exclaims Heafy. “There were no two ways about it. We’ve always had this will to be better. I started taking inventory of everything we’ve done right or wrong, and it made me apply that thinking to the new music. What ended up coming about was, in my opinion, a combination of the best things we’ve ever done. We all agreed, ‘We have to make the best record of our career right now.’
Without so much as a social media plug or formal recording announcement, Trivium broke the silence about their latest body of work and uncovered the music video for the first single and title track in the summer of 2017. It arrived to a groundswell of fan enthusiasm, racking up 1.9 million YouTube views and nearly 1 million Spotify streams in just four weeks’ time. The near six-minute lead-off charges forward at full speed on a double bass drum gallop, thrash intricacies, and hummable guitar lead as Heafy delivers one of his most powerful and ponderous vocal performances ever.
“The idea is condemnation, being ostracized, being pushed aside, and not quite understanding how to deal with those feelings,” remarks Heafy. “This is definitely reactionary to the world and things that have happened to us.”
Following the 2003 independent breakout of Ember to Inferno, Trivium arrived as metal’s hungriest contender on 2005’s Ascendancy. Heralded as “Album of the Year'' by Kerrang!, it stands out as a 21st century genre landmark. As they went on to cumulatively sell over 2 million units, they scorched stages with idols such as Metallica, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and more in addition to regularly making pivotal appearances at Download Festival, Bloodstock, KNOTFEST, and beyond. In Waves and Vengeance Falls both soared to the Top 15 of the Billboard Top 200 as the band staunchly secured its place in the modern metal pantheon.
By growing by leaps and bounds, Heafy, Beaulieu, Gregoletto, and Bent become what they were always meant to be —Trivium. “With this, we wanted to knock everything down and think from the ground up about how we write songs,” Gregoletto leaves off.
“I want everyone to know we made this with our hearts and souls,” Heafy concludes. “It was all or nothing; we gave it our all. We’ve been through lots of ups and downs and felt like this had to capture that. It had to summarize everything that is Trivium. I feel like we did that.’
