Slipknot have announced that they will be returning in 2011 to headline the Sonisphere Festival in Europe next summer. The band aims to reconnect with their fans and celebrate the memory of their falllen bassist Paul Gray. They have posted a statement on their official website:

Slipknot are proud to announce that they will return in 2011 to headline the UK’s Sonisphere Festival. The weekend event at the world famous Knebworth site is set for Friday July 8th- Sunday July 10th.

Expect the band to bring an incendiary show to Sonisphere, as the icons prepare to honour Paul Gray’s memory and musical career with their Knebworth appearance. Slipknot say, “We’re looking forward to spending our summer in Europe. This tour is about us and our fans. It’s about celebrating the life of our brother, Paul and his legacy. The door is neither open nor closed. This tour is about burning down that door. See you this summer."

The band hope you will come join them in Europe next Summer to celebrate and remember their brother, Paul Gray

Hey remember that affluent and respected dude who OD'd on morphine in a relatively shitty motel? Didn't he have a wife and kid or was it just a hutch full of rabbits? I can't picture his face, but he sounds like a miserable character.
