Slipknot reveal new clip from ‘Day of the Gusano’

By James Davenport

Slipknot’s movie, ‘Day of the Gusano’ is nearing on 6th September and a new documentary clip focusing on the Mexican fans has been revealed via their official YouTube channel.

The incendiary Iowa band’s ‘must see’ feature length film lands as a ‘one night only’ event in over 1000 cinemas globally, including more than 100 UK screens.  Tickets for the one off event are now available for purchase here.

Metal Hammer enthused that ‘Day of the Gusano’ has “one of the best mixes we’ve ever heard for a concert film, seeing and hearing Slipknot’s eye-popping, ear-busting live show on a big, fuck-off cinema screen is as close as you’ll get to the real thing”.

Directed by Slipknot’s own M.Shawn Crahan, aka ‘Clown’, ‘Day of The Gusano’ documents the Iowa band’s first ever visit to Mexico City in December 2015 and features exclusive interviews and behind the scenes footage of Slipknot’s members talking about the band’s long awaited first ever show there and the importance of their fanbase, fondly known as ‘maggots’ (‘gusano’ is the Spanish translation).  The movie also chronicles the rabid devotion of their Mexican ‘gusano’ and details 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 colossal surround sound, so you’ll not only witness the show, but you’ll ‘feel’ it as if you were actually there.

Talking about the movie, Clown explains, “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.”
