Masked headbangers Slipknot, currently headlining the Rockstar Energy Mayhem festival with Disturbed, that kicked off earlier this month, will continue promoting their upcoming album, “All Hope Is Gone”, their first studio album in five years, with a UK/European and Australian tour in the fall.

The international leg includes several UK festival dates and kicks off August 22 at the Leeds Festival in the UK, followed by a string of German festivals. This stretch of dates will take Slipknot to Russia, Australia, Scandinavia, Switzerland, Italy, France, Holland and Belgium before finishing up December 15 in Germany.

The band suffered a bit of a mishap early into the Mayhem tour when Slipknot DJ Sid Wilson broke both his heels during the band’s first set of the tour but continued on.

“[Sid] had to take his cast off last night, and I’m telling you, I couldn’t even look at his feet,” Slipknot percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan told MTV News. “The bruises go, like, two inches in. But he’s up there every night, no problem. He’s so out of his mind, he’s got a big bruise on his face because he’s not used to slamming his head in a wheelchair. So he’s got a huge bruise on his face from smacking his head into his tables.”
