More SLIPKNOT Reissue Details Revealed

More details have been revealed about the upcoming 10th anniversary reissue of SLIPKNOT's self-titled major label debut, due out on September 29. A Roadrunner Records representative told The Pulse of Radio that the CD/DVD set will feature all-new digipack packaging and a total of 25 songs, including the original album plus several previously unreleased cuts and demo tracks. The DVD portion of the set was created, like all the band's previous DVDs, by percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan and will contain "tons" of behind-the-scenes and early live footage. Crahan told The Pulse of Radio a while back how he goes about putting together the pieces for the band's DVDs. "I look for the thing that makes me taste and smell and gets me excited, you know," he said. "I look for those things to start it off, and once I have a few of those, then I get going. And then the plot goes from there."

The DVD will also include a commentary track from Crahan.

A "super deluxe" box set version of the re-release will come in packaging that resembles a safety deposit box, containing a T-shirt, patch, collectible cards, key chain, beanie and a note from singer Corey Taylor.

There's no word yet on the price of the deluxe version or how many copies will be available.

The original album was released on June 29, 1999 and has sold over 1.5 million copies.

SLIPKNOT has been commemorating the upcoming anniversary for much of the past year since issuing its latest record last August, "All Hope Is Gone".

The band will begin a short North American run of dates on August 22 in Seattle.
