Brace yourselves — the heaviest tour of the year is coming. Slipknot will embark on a headlining summer trek with Volbeat, Behemoth and Gojira rounding out a knockout lineup.

These shows will be among the first of the year for Slipknot, who did not play a single gig in 2018 as Corey Taylor placed his focus on Stone Sour and their Hydrograd album. With things back in motion, a new song ("All Out Life") released in October and the first new album since 2014's .5: The Gray Chapter on the way, all eyes are on Slipknot this year.

Volbeat are plotting their successor to 2016's Seal the Deal and Let's Boogie, Behemoth are touring behind 2017's I Loved You at Your Darkest and Gojira are expected to release the follow-up to 2016's Magma, which found them touring under Metallica. Over the summer, Gojira's Joe Duplantier said the band was working on 100 new songs.
