The weekend will feature performances from Slipknot, Danzig, Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Anthrax, Killswitch Engage, Tech N9ne, Of Mice & Men, Black Label Society, Testament, Hatebreed, Atreyu, In This Moment, Carcass and many more. A list of artists performing each day is available now at this location.

Slipknot will close the Main Stage both Saturday and Sunday, with unique sets each night, featuring brand new music and an entirely new stage set and experience. In addition, all ticket purchasers will receive a digital copy of Slipknot’s forthcoming album, to be delivered on its release date.

“Knotfest is a chance for Slipknot to bring the sensory-overload of a wild European festival--and now we're coming for you, California,” says Slipknot’s M. Shawn Crahan (Clown).

Of Mice & Men Posts New Video

Today Southern California band Of Mice & Men reveals a new music video for the song "Would You Still Be There," directed by Nathan Cox for Renaissance Man Productions and available below.

"Would You Still Be There" is featured on the band's new release "Restoring Force," which hit stores on January 28 via Rise Records.

"I'm super excited for the debut of our new video for 'Would You Still Be There,'" said bassist/vocalist Aaron Pauley. "Directed by Nathan Cox, who has worked with bands like Linkin Park and Chevelle, the video offers a peek into a present day small town set in an alternate post-apocalyptic reality, and it's gas mask clad inhabitants. Shooting the video was a great experience. Nathan and his staff did an incredible job with the imagery and location, and created a believable setting in an abandoned mining town north of LA. Despite chipping my tooth on that pesky vintage microphone, I had a blast, and it was awesome getting to hang with some of our fans; which can be seen in the video's ending performances parts."

Of Mice & Men Issues Recording Update

Of Mice & Men has checked in from the pre-production recording process for its new album with producer Joey Sturgis (The Devil Wears Prada, Emmure). You can read the update below:

"Over the course of the last week, we’ve been doing demoing/pre-production with Joey Sturgis at The Foundation Studio. Some of you may not be familiar with this process so we’re gonna explain it to you. We basically get all of our ideas ‘out on the table’ (so to speak) and record all of our ideas as demo songs.

"We then break apart each song and put it back together piece by piece to test the strength of the song. We also did a lot of writing while we’ve been here, reformulating ideas as well as coming up with brand new ones to make every song just the way we want it to sound.

"So, reaching the final stages of this process, we’ve ended up with about 12/13 tracks. Starting today, we will track all of these songs (which means record the final draft of the song) and we will then go in and choose which ones we feel will make our album the most powerful and an overall best representation of OM&M "

Of Mice & Men Issues Band Update

Costa Mesa, California metalcore act Of Mice & Men has issued the following update:

"So an entire year of touring on our debut album has come to an end and the approaching date of entering the studio to make our next album has come closer and closer, it’s become time for us to decide the kind of album we want to make, for us, as well as for all of you!

"With having recently made amends with our original vocalist, Austin Carlile, and not after discussing all of our previous disputes and issues we’ve had with each other (like any other relationship, its not always a friendly exchange of happy words) we’ve collectively decided to return to, or as close to, our original lineup as we could.

"Now, we knew this was going to be a huge surprise to everyone and an unexpected turn of events for Of Mice & Men. We had to take into account the response our fans had to our necessity to change screamers in order to continue touring as well as what we felt comfortable with as a group in and out of the studio as well as what our management/label/booking agency team (yes we include them in almost any decision we make, we are a close family, a relationship we are extremely grateful for) felt was a good decision to make for the business aspect while taking into account our personal well being.

"To be put simply, both OM&M and Austin want to make another album together because we want give our fans the familiar sound they loved about our first album and build upon that for our follow up. We were willing to put our differences aside and re-establish our friendship and love for making music together. We also want to give you all the chance to hear our first album the way it was intended to be heard since due to prior circumstances…well, that’s all in the past now! More...
