SLIPKNOT's video for "Duality", the first single off their upcoming "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)" CD, has been posted online at the Launch.com web site. Check it out here.
The clip, which was reported by Iowa's KCCI TV to have cost between $300,000 and $500,000 to produce (a figure that is disputed by the band's label, Roadrunner Records), was shot at a house in West Des Moines, Iowa on March 27 and features more than 350 fans of the group (or "maggots", as they're affectionately called), many of whom had traveled from as far as Ukraine and Great Britain to attend the shoot.
Since the filming was completed, the family in West Des Moines, Iowa, who rented their house to SLIPKNOT for the shoot, have asked the band to replace or fix a number of items that they say were severely damaged by the hundreds of "maggots" who were present for the filming. These items include broken windows throughout the house, new painted kitchen destroyed, damage to the driveway, torn-up lawn, front door destroyed, rugs sustained water damage, whole house needs repainting, gutters were broken, back door and window frames broken, equipment missing, basketball backboard trashed, damage from cigarette butts, ceiling destroyed where chandelier fell, and picnic tables broken.
The "Duality" video shoot was helmed by the directing duo of Mark Klasfeld and Tony Petrossian. The track comes off the band's new album, "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)", due on May 25 through Roadrunner Records. The band will perform the song live on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Monday, May 17 at 11:35 p.m. EST.
