Lamb Of God To Support Slipknot’s 2016 Australian Tour

Written by Tom Williams on May 22, 2016

US heavy metal outfit Lamb Of God have been announced as a support act for Slipknot‘s 2016 Australian headline tour, which is set to make its way across Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne this October.

Lamb Of God’s Slipknot support sets will mark the band’s first performances in Australia since Soundwave 2015. The shows will also mark the group’s first Aussie dates since the release of their seventh album VII: Sturm und Drang in July 2015 — a release which swiftly led to circle pits forming live on daytime television.

Slipknot confirmed that hell was on its way when they announced their latest Australian jaunt earlier this month, in what will also be their first trip down under since Soundwave 2015. Before the east coast tour kicks off, the band will complete a huge US tour and will also take to the stage at their recently announced joint mega festival Ozzfest Meets Knotfest.

Slipknot are currently touring in support of their latest album .5: The Gray Chapter, and given frontman Corey Taylor’s comment that the band will “take a couple of years off” before the next album, maggots might not see the group back in Australia for a while.

UPDATE 08/06/16: Lamb Of Gad have announced two of their own headline club shows for Adelaide and Perth. See dates below.
