A unique and fascinating insight into the career and controversies of one of the most successful and contentious heavy metal bands of all time: SLIPKNOT.
The film combines new interviews, backstage access and an exclusive live session from the nine-piece group, performing six career-defining tracks at the legendary Maida Vale Studios in front of an intimate audience. The six tracks, one from each of the band’s albums, transport the group, acknowledged by many as one of the most extreme live acts ever, from their usual arena-sized shows to a uniquely intimate and intense setting.
The film highlights the group’s phenomenal 25-year career, revealing how one of the most relentless and intense-sounding groups ever have struggled with drink, drugs, depression and the death of a band member, topped the charts, outsold their peers and picked up a Grammy along the way, whilst staying as bold, fearless and exhilarating as ever.
SLIPKNOT recently announced that they will once again be hitting the road this summer to headline the “Knotfest Roadshow” 2020 North American tour produced by Live Nation. Joining them and rounding out a killer lineup showcasing the best the world of heavy music has to offer, will be special guests A DAY TO REMEMBER, UNDEROATH and CODE ORANGE.
Tickets for the tour are available here.
SLIPKNOT released their sixth studio album, We Are Not Your Kind, on August 9 via Roadrunner Records. Album was once again recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Greg Fidelman, who engineered and mixed SLIPKNOT‘s 2004 album Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) and helmed 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter.
