Masked metal bashers Slipknot have announced the cancellation of all live activities scheduled for the near future including overseas dates, their music cruise and their massive U.S. package tour Knotfest.

In a statement posted to their Twitter, the band ran down the status of all summer events:

Knotfest was supposed to hit Orlando's Amway Center in June as one of only two Florida dates. Presumably a new tour itinerary will be posted as touring becomes feasible.
