More than 20,000 people were expected to pack the San Manuel Amphitheater for Knotfest, which kicked off Saturday with a headlining set from SLIPKNOT, as well as turns from DANZIG, ANTHRAX and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY.
SLIPKNOT‘s long-awaited fifth studio album, “.5: The Gray Chapter”, caps a very turbulent period for the masked rockers in which they dealt with the death of Paul Gray and the firing of drummer Joey Jordison, both longtime members and songwriters.
Although the identities of their replacements have not been officially revealed, they are believed to be drummer Jay Weinberg and bassist Alessandro “Vman” Venturella.
“.5: The Gray Chapter” is likely to sell between 100,000 and 110,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on October 21 via Roadrunner. The chart will be unveiled on Wednesday, October 29.
SLIPKNOT‘s only competition for this week’s No. 1 slot on The Billboard 200 chart appears to be Neil Diamond‘s “Melody Road”, which is expected to shift between 70,000 and 80,000 in its first week of of release.
SLIPKNOT will head out on a headlining North American tour immediately following Knotfest, with special guests KORN.
