What they're saying: "A home show is always insane, but a home 'Knotfest' show will be on a whole other level. Prepare. See you soon for the new reality," Clown, aka Des Moines' own Shawn Crahan, said in a news release.
Tickets: Pre-sale is open now through June 3, starting at $79. General admission opens June 4 at $99.
What's next: Slipknot also announced they're returning to the studio to work on their next album release.
Our take: Hey, they've been wearing masks this whole time!
