SLIPKNOT Announces First-Ever Pop-up Store At Hollywood Palladium

SLIPKNOT has announced the opening of special pop-up store ahead of this year's Knotfest, which takes place November 5 at the Glen Helen Amphitheater & Festival Grounds in San Bernardino, California.

The first-ever SLIPKNOT / Knotfest pop-up store is set to open at the Hollywood Palladium on October 30 and will run from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. A free event with all ages welcome, the pop-up will offer fans a chance to meet members of SLIPKNOT, go back through band history with Slipknot Museum pieces spanning their entire career, access rare SLIPKNOT and Knotfest merchandise, including shirts, posters and much more along with the opportunity to purchase discounted $20 tickets for Knotfest or Ozzfest (including fees). Additionally, any attendees dressed as their favorite SLIPKNOT member will be entered to win a VIP package to hang with SLIPKNOT's M. Shawn Crahan, a.k.a. Clown, at Knotfest on November 5.

Crahan shared a video message regarding the pop-up. Check it out below.

SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor told the 97.1 The Eagle radio station in June that the band was "not really doing anything right now." He explained: "I know we're kind of slowly starting to write some music. Other than that, we're just kind of taking some time off. Clown's gonna direct some movies, Sid's gonna do some stuff… We're all kind of doing our own thing… But that's it. I mean, really. Next year is everybody kind of doing their own thing, and then probably after that, we will slowly but surely start to get together to do some SLIPKNOT stuff."

SLIPKNOT's touring cycle in support of ".5: The Gray Chapter", ended in November, with Taylor returning to his other band STONE SOUR this year.

".5: The Gray Chapter" was released following a six-year hiatus during which founding SLIPKNOT bassist Paul Gray died and drummer Joey Jordison was dismissed.

One of last gigs of "The Gray Chapter" touring cycle saw SLIPKNOT performing its 2001 second LP, "Iowa", live in its entirety for the first time during the band's set at their annual Knotfest.

".5: The Gray Chapter" sold around 132,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores in October 2014 via Roadrunner.

Gray died in 2010 from a drug overdose, while Jordison was let go in December 2013, just before SLIPKNOT began recording the last album.
