SLIPKNOT-Headlined Festival In Des Moines Cancelled

The SLIPKNOT-headlined one-day festival, which was supposed to be held in the band's hometown of Des Moines, Iowa on 9/9/09 (September 9, 2009), has been officially cancelled, a spokesperson for the group's record company, Roadrunner Records, confirmed to BLABBERMOUTH.NET. The show was to feature two stages and a host of bands, with SLIPKNOT headlining. The second stage, sponsored by Jägermeister, was set to include all local acts.

SLIPKNOT has announced a special-edition release on Roadrunner Records of its seminal self-titled debut album. This CD/DVD piece will commemorate the 10th anniversary of SLIPKNOT's first album's release in 1999 and is due on September 9, 2009 (9/9/09). The CD will feature 25 tracks, including the original album as well as rare demos, remixes, rare b-sides and more.

The companion documentary, entitled "of the (sic): Your Nightmares, Our Dreams", is packed with behind-the-scenes footage of SLIPKNOT from 1999. This never-before-seen hour-long piece was directed by percussionist M. Shawn Crahan, who combed through his vast archives to compile the definitive chronicle of this important time in SLIPKNOT's career. This inside look features both live and backstage footage from around the world. The DVD also features all the music videos from their debut cycle as well as other surprises. The expanded package artwork includes never-before-published photos and a new foreword from vocalist Corey Taylor. A deluxe collector's edition of this package, "Slipknot - 10 Years Of Life Death Love Hate Pain Scars Victory War Blood And Destruction", will also be released. Contents will be packaged in a special steel box and include SLIPKNOT 10th anniversary CD/DVD, a T-shirt, patch, collector's cards, keychain plus a few more surprises.
