Slipknot’s own Knotfest.com has been officially rebranded and will now serve as “a global multi-media hub for news, exclusive interviews, performances, merchandise and more dedicated to covering the very best of art, music, culture and media for fans of heavy culture,” as per the official announcement.
As of recent, the website has been posting a series of exclusive live videos from the likes of not only Slipknot, but also Lamb of God, Megadeth, Anthrax, Trivium and more. This Friday (May 29th) at 3PM PDT the site will launch an exclusive stream hosted by rock and metal journalist Beez and featuring exclusive concert streams and interviews with Slipknot, Underoath and Code Orange.
In addition, a special merch store will be available for 72 hours only (starting Friday morning), featuring the exclusive tour merch collection that would have been sold this summer (if the ‘Knotfest Roadshow US tour’ had not been affected by COVID-19). The store can be accessed HERE.
Here’s what viewers can expect from this Friday’s stream:
