Slipknot are gearing up for the premiere of their new, self-directed tour documentary Day of the Gusano. The film, which chronicles the band's first-ever performance in Mexico City and the legion of loyal fans — otherwise known as "Maggots" — who turned out for the landmark show. The film will grace over a thousand silver screens worldwide for one night only, on September 6. A list of participating theaters will be announced sometime next month; but all you maggots can sign up for email notifications regarding these screenings over at the film's website.
To tide fans over until then, Slipknot have shared a 36-second snippet from the Day of the Gusano. The pro-shot clip previews the group's no-holds-barred take on set staple "Vermillion" — a performance made all the more intense by their sophisticated onstage setup, which transforms an otherwise ordinary stage into the devil's playground. Check it out below.
"Slipknot still has dreams for itself," said percussionist and co-founder Michael "Clown" Crahan, who also directed the documentary. "Finally playing Mexico was one of them. It's been a surreal life of rock and roll for Slipknot and the fact that the dreams still go on for us is simply incredible."
Guitarist Jim Root added, "We had such a great time at Knotfest Mexico... Not only with all the friends and bands that were there, but with the fans and the crowd we had to document it with. Now we get to share it with the world."
