LAMC Productions is thrilled to announce that multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning legends of metal SLIPKNOT will be joining Singapore Rockfest II! The band is set to make their long-awaited return to Singapore on 24 March, 2020.
TO BE ANNOUNCED
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!
