Dig out your spiked leather wristbands, nu-metallers Slipknot and Korn are heading out on a UK tour in 2015 entitled 'Prepare for Hell', taking in dates in London, Manchester, Liverpool, Cardiff, Glasgow and more.

Slipknot will headline the dates, which begin on 14 January at Dublin's 3Arena and conclude on 17 January at Birmingham's Barclaycard Arena.

"The UK has always been very special for us," said frontman Corey Taylor. "In a lot of ways, it's where this insanity began.

"So for this tour, we decided to try and hit as many places as we could - not only England, but Scotland and Wales as well. Technically Ireland is Europe, but we're going there, too.

"We're coming back for the people who started this for us - that would be YOU."
