Slipknot just announced a headlining North American tour with support from Knocked Loose, Orbit Culture and Vended.

The "Here Comes The Pain Tour" will mark the 25th anniversary of the band's breakthrough self-titled studio album.

"We loved what we did with the first record but we didn't even know if there was gonna be anything after that," guitarist Jim Root said.

"We just wanted people to hear it. Selling out of records and shows, having successful tours – those are goals for any band. But the dream scenario in some ways, came true for us."

The trek will begin in Noblesville, Indiana on Aug. 6 and end in the band's native Des Moines, Iowa on Sept. 21.

Knotfest members can buy presale tickets starting at 12 p.m. ET on Tuesday, April 30. They'll be available to the general public at 10 a.m. local time on Friday, May 3.

The trek will begin in Noblesville, Indiana on Aug. 6 and end in the band's native Des Moines, Iowa on Sept. 21.

Slipknot will also play two shows in Mexico and one in Brazil ahead of their previously announced U.K. and European tour, which will begin in December.

The announcement came just hours after Slipknot confirmed that Eloy Casagrande is the band's new drummer. He was tagged in a picture posted to the group's Instagram account on Tuesday, April 30.

All nine members of the current lineup donned their masks and red jumpsuits for the image, which resembles old press shots the band took in its early years.

Casagrande made his first appearance with Slipknot during a performance at Pappy + Harriet's barbecue restaurant in Pioneertown, California on Thursday, April 25. The surprise gig was announced just one day prior.

Casagrande left Sepultura in February shortly after the band announced its 40th anniversary farewell tour. He had been with the group for 13 years.

"On February 6th, a few days prior to the first rehearsal, drummer Eloy Casagrande informed the band that he was leaving Sepultura to pursue a career in another project," Sepultura said in a statement at the time.

"The band were taken by surprise, without prior warning, he immediately left the band, abandoning everything related to Sepultura. Luckily American virtuoso Greyson Nekrutman will take the position of Eloy Casagrande."

The band recently revealed that its new drummer is former Sepultura member Eloy Casagrande.

The drummer hails from Santo André, a suburb of Brazil's largest city São Paulo. He replaced Slipknot's last drummer Jay Weinberg, who's since joined Suicidal Tendencies.

Weinberg was preceded by Slipknot's founding drummer Joey Jordison, who died in 2021. Fans were still mourning him and late bassist Paul Gray in the comment section below Slipknot's Instagram post.
