Slipknot guitarist Jim Root recently appeared as a guest on Philly rock radio station WMMR, and when asked if the band had any special plans to celebrate its 25th anniversary next year — such as playing the group's landmark self-titled debut in its entirety — he had a surprising answer. "We did that with Iowa at Knotfest, and it was cool — it was a cool thing," he said, as reported by Blabbermouth. "But it might be cool to do … We have been talking about maybe trying to find some way to play [the new Slipknot] album in its entirety — from top to bottom. I would like to do that. I think that would be something really cool. And do it in a really toned down, stripped down, not big stage set, club atmosphere type of thing. I'd love to do something like that. And then maybe webcast it or something."
Fans would likely be very stoked to see such a special event take place. The 'Knot's new album, We Are Not Your Kind, has met with rave reviews and been a smash commercial success so far, debuting at No. 1 in the U.S. — Slipknot's third consecutive LP to do so — as well as in the United Kingdom, Mexico, Australia, Canada, Japan, Ireland, Belgium, Portugal and Finland.
