Masked metal collective Slipknot announced details today for their massive traveling summer tour/mini-fest – the Knotfest Roadshow – set to commence this July and continue through September. Though Orlando Slipknot fanatics will have to travel a little ways down I-4 to see the carnage for themselves.

The band will no doubt be airing tracks from an upcoming and still-untitled new album (due out Aug. 9), and they're bringing along some very heavy support for this trek: Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth.

Slipknot's Knotfest Roadshow rolls into the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa on Wednesday, Sept. 4. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 8.
