Frontman Tommy Victor commented on being selected to play on the first Knotfest:

"Prong is unbelievably honored and flattered to be a part of the first ever 'Knotfest!' We want to thank our friends in Slipknot and the organizers for giving us the opportunity to be on this bill with all these incredible bands. All the festivities included are going to make this very special for everyone involved. It's amazing!"
