The next wave of bands for Knotfest Japan has just been revealed.

Joining the previously announced headliners Slipknot and Korn, 10 more acts have joined the line-up across April 1 and 2 at the Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Hall just outside Tokyo.

Trivium, In Flames, THE ORAL CIGARETTES, Survive Said The Prophet, Crystal Lake and a crowd of rebellion have been added to the April 1 instalment. Joining the April 2 all-dayer are Parkway Drive, coldrain, Fear, And Loathing In Las Vegas and Petit Brabancon.

Check out current full line-up below. More bands are due to be announced.

Slipknot certainly have a busy year ahead of them, hitting up tons of festivals across the globe, including Knotfest Australia, Hellfest, Welcome To Rockville and Download Festival.

For most people, this will be their first time seeing The 'Knot since the release of their album The End, So Far.

In our exclusive cover story with Corey Taylor last year, the frontman praised his bandmates for their work on the new record, revealing that they actually complimented each other once the record was finished – something they’ve never done before.

“I kind of get a little emotional about it, because it means a lot to me,” he shared. “We always hang out before we’re getting ready for a show, and all of the guys had different favourite things that I had done on the album – they were like, ‘I love this part, I love this line, I love this, I love how you fucking your scream on this…’ We’ve never given each other props to each other’s face. We’re such crotchety curmudgeons! And it’s really funny that after this many years we had never really told each other, ‘I think you’re the shit, and I love being in a band with you.’”
