Slipknot promise biggest and most emotional shows ever

Metal band Slipknot have promised that their shows this summer will be their "biggest and most emotional" ever. 

After the death of their bassist Paul Grey last year, the internationally renowned 'Duality' stars drafted in original member Donnie Steele to help them with their festival run and are all looking forward to it. Percussionist Shawn Crahan revealed:

"I'll be in tears before I even hit the first stair. And I need it very much - and we need it. So I'm looking forward to it, but it's gonna be very hard."

Drummer Joey Jordison added:

"I've been in rehearsal over the last few weeks with our new bass player, Donnie Steele, and my feeling is that these will probably be the biggest and most emotional shows that we've ever had."

"I'm just speaking for myself and the rest of the band that we can't wait. Everything's on fire right now."
