SLIPKNOT's performance at the Rock Am Ring festival in Germany (June 9) was livestreamed via the band's official web site and can be viewed in its entirety below.
For U.S. and Canadian fans, the stream is a great way for fans to get a look at the band's new live show ahead of the kickoff of the Knotfest Roadshow tour, which will launch on July 26 and hit some 29 cities.
Singer Corey Taylor admitted a while back that it takes a few days for the band to really get cooking onstage. "It takes a little bit for us, you know. I mean, because we are very active," he told The Pulse Of Radio. " You know, it usually takes a couple of shows before we dial it in and everything's there, you know. It takes our bodies about a week to acclimatize. But, I mean, by the time we get into it, it's all automatic. So we come together pretty quick — at our age, as well. I mean, you know, we're no spry chickens anymore."
The group's sixth studio album, "We Are Not Your Kind", will arrive on August 9. It has been preceded by the release of a new single, "Unsainted", and the first live performance on this album cycle, a two-song appearance on the May 17 edition of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
SLIPKNOT's first full concert in nearly three years took place this psat Friday (June 7) at Rockfest in Finland.
