Slipknot. A genuine sonic phenomenon, a nine-piece force of nature and one of heavy music’s most important, recognizable, uncompromising and creatively ingenious bands. Yet to their millions of fans across the world, affectionately known as “maggots,” Slipknot aren’t just a musical entity, they’re also a counterculture and a way of life. Now the incendiary live show for their current .5: The Gray Chapter album cycle is captured on DVD/Blu-ray and set for release on October 20 via Eagle Rock Entertainment.
Shot in high definition and directed by Slipknot’s own M. Shawn Crahan, aka “Clown,” Day of The Gusano documents the Iowa band’s long-awaited and first ever show in Mexico City in December 2015 and will be released on DVD+CD and Blu-ray+CD formats, as well as special gatefold deluxe vinyl/DVD and CD/2DVD packages.

Talking about Day of the Gusano, 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‘s live track listing runs as follows:
The Heretic Anthem

Before I Forget

Today, Slipknot stand alongside some of the biggest names in rock music, having grown steadily for nearly twenty years, and their creative, live, and commercial momentum only builds. The band emerged at the back end of the 20th century from Des Moines, IA and quickly established themselves as the most enigmatic, provocative and aggressive music collective of the modern era. 1999’s eponymous debut album is widely regarded as a modern day classic and was honored by Metal Hammer magazine as the “Best Debut of the Last 25 Years.” The release quickly racked up double RIAA platinum certification in the U.S., with many of Slipknot’s subsequent releases achieving platinum status both in the U.S. and across the globe. To date, the band have been nominated for 10 Grammy Awards (winning in 2006 for “Before I Forget”), as well as scoring 13 Platinum and 44 Gold record certifications around the world, 17 million unit sales and over 1 billion YouTube views to date. Slipknot’s fanbase is as unwavering as it is ubiquitous – the band’s most recent studio album, 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter debuted Top 3 in the Official Album Charts of 19 countries around the world, including the US (#1), UK (#2), Japan (#1), Australia (#1), Russia (#1) & Germany (#2).
