Wage War to replace Jinjer on Knotfest Roadshow

Metalcore quintet Wage War will take the place of Ukrainian band Jinjer on the first leg of the 2022 iteration of Slipknot’s Knotfest Roadshow tour.

Jinjer has canceled all of its North American tour dates scheduled for this spring–including Knotfest Roadshow, off dates supporting In This Moment and headline shows–while band members focus on the safety of their families in their home country, which has been invaded by Russia.

“Thank you all for your concerned messages and prayers sent to us over the last week,” Jinjer bassis Eugene Abdukhanov said. “We may not answer but we are reading them and they mean the world to us. As you know, there is war raging through the streets and cities of Ukraine right now. Many people have little or no food or water and are very afraid of what tomorrow may bring. Together with Napalm Records, we’re releasing two new T-Shirt designs to raise funds to be donated to various charities throughout Ukraine to help with medical and food supplies, water and so on. If you cannot donate then please share this or any news related to what’s really happening here. Each sale may save somebody’s life in Ukraine. Thank you.“

Jinjer has released two new merch designs to help raise funds to support their country; you can check them out here. All of the proceeds will be distributed directly to charity organizations of Jinjer‘s choosing and the band will update fans on social media.

Wage War, from Florida, released its fourth album, “Manic,” in October 2021. It has spawned the hit single “Circle the Drain.”

The Knotfest Roadshow tour will take place over two legs, both headlined by Slipknot. The first leg will feature special guests In This Moment and Wage War. The second leg will feature special guests Cypress Hill and Ho99o9.

Tickets for all Knotfest Roadshow dates are available at Knotfest.com/Roadshow/. The first leg of the 38-date run, produced by Live Nation, kicks off March 16 in Fargo, North Dakota. The second leg kicks off on May 18 in University Park, Pennsylvania. 

The tour will be part of Live Nation’s Live Stubs initiative, which provides digital collectible NFT ticket stubs to ticket-holders. Live Stubs are included with tickets purchased for the tour. Fans can view, share, gift, trade and resell their live stubs at Livenation.com.
