Slipknot & Machine Head Australian tour

Official Press Release:

This October Slipknot guide their unholy army through the nine circles of hell on the All Hope is Gone 2008 world tour, their first tour of Australia since they stormed the main stages at the 2005 Big Day Out. 

At the turn of the millennium, Slipknot erupted onto the heavy music scene and their first three albums reset the course of the Metal genre. Multi million selling, three albums have been released, all platinum. Their massive popularity was acknowledged when, after being nominated for the sixth time in The Grammys for Best Metal Performance, Slipknot won the coveted award in 2006 for the track “Before I Forget”. 

Now the metal masses unite in anticipation of Slipknots fourth album ‘All Hope Is Gone’, due out though iconic label Roadrunner Records in August. Early leaks have garnered rave reviews and Slipknot rightly proclaim that ‘All Hope Is Gone’ will be their most malevolent effort yet.

At their left hand will be the mighty Machine Head, pioneers of a brutal new sound Machine Head’s influential and ferocious debut Burn My Eyes was released in 1994.  Several albums later Machine Head returned to the highest echelons of the metal world with the 2007 album The Blackening. For many critics it was the metal album of 2007: “one of the purest, finest, most powerful expressions of modern heavy metal released” and comparisons with the Metallica’s seminal Master Of Puppets were made. Now they bring their merciless metal to Slipknot’s stages the world over.
