Slipknot have shared a live teaser clip of ‘Vermilion’, taken from their forthcoming movie, Day of the Gusano over on their official Youtube channel.
Day of The Gusano is a 90 minute documentary of the band’s first ever trip to Mexico City and is to be premiered on more than a thousand screens across the world (including upward of 50 locations in the UK) as a ‘one night only’ cinematic spectacle on 6th September 2017. Watch the movie trailer below. Confirmed cities and ticketing for the screenings will be announced in July. Sign up to receive details as they confirm in your location at the film’s website.
Directed by Slipknot’s own M.Shawn Crahan, aka Clown, Day of The Gusano documents the Iowa band’s visit in December 2015 and features exclusive interviews with Slipknot’s members talking about the importance of their fanbase and the band’s long awaited, inaugural Knotfest Mexico.
Talking about the movie, Clown tells us:
Slipknot still has dreams for itself. 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. Thank you.
Guitarist Jim Root continues:
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.
Day of the Gusano also chronicles the rabid devotion of the Mexican maggots and sees the band hearing personal, emotive stories from some of their fans, all interspersed with footage from Slipknot’s incendiary live show at the inaugural Knotfest Mexico. The film features a full surround soundtrack, so you’ll not only hear the show, but you’ll ‘feel’ it as if you were actually there.
Knotfest is Slipknot’s own self-curated, destination festival brand, currently held in three international locations; the US, Japan and Mexico. Designed as an immersive, unforgettable, ‘dark carnival experience’, the event invites you into Slipknot’s apocalyptic underworld where stunning visuals, fire-breathers and nightmarish creatures on stilts set the stage for an intoxicating and memorable weekend of live music. Knotfest’s plans for 2017 are to be announced in due course.
