Slipknot have spilled the maggots on that “live thing” they’ve been teasing, revealing that they’ve been working on a new documentary about the first ever Knotfest Mexico, entitled Day Of The Gusano (“gusano” being Spanish for “maggot”).
The new feature-length flick, directed by the one and only Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan, is set to premiere in movie theatres around the world for a “one night only” screening on September 6th.
The doco follows the Masked Ones south of the border to Mexico City, where they performed for the first time during the inaugural Knotfest Mexico back in December of 2015.
And as well as concert footage from the gig, the 90-minute movie is also packing exclusive interviews with The Nine.
“This is the one place we’ve always talked about coming and playing and we just never really had the opportunity,” Corey Taylor says in the trailer.
“Slipknot still has dreams for itself,” Crahan adds in a statement (via Rolling Stone). “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.”
To cap it all off, the ‘Knot are inviting fans to ask them anything by posting questions to their Facebook or Twitter page before June 13th with the hashtag #AskSlipknot. A bunch of the best ones will be chosen, with the band’s answers to appear as part of the cinema screenings.
No word on which Aussie cinemas will be screening the doco ~just yet~ but we’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime you can catch the official trailer (and behind the scenes video, in Spanish if you can speak it or are just mad keen) below.
