SLIPKNOT's CLOWN On Upcoming DVD: 'We Can't Wait To Share It With All Of You'

SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan has issued the following update on the band's forthcoming DVD:

"It's coming along. It's very time-consuming. As usual, we have tons of great footage to choose from. The DVD could probably be 10 hours long if we wanted it to be at this point.

"I personally am enjoying the process because it's a great feeling to reflect on our past achievements (and disasters). So, in short, I've been enjoying the entire 'Subliminal' concept — from writing, to practicing, to recording, to playing live — all in my head at once visually and audibly. We can't wait to share it with all of you."

Regarding the follow-up to 2002's "Disasterpieces", guitarist Mick Thomson recently told, '[it is] going to be different than our last one. Our last one mostly focused on the concert, and this one is going to have a lot more personal stuff on it. You get to see more stupid sh*t [laughs]. There'll be some music and stuff, but you're getting to see what our days our like. It should be a lot more fun."

Speaking about his favorite scene in the upcoming DVD, Thomson said, "A fan, I think in Austria, was drunk and out of line. He kept trying to come up on the bus, kept bothering people and then started to get a little bit loud and threatening. He had to be set down on his ass by someone close to us. Sometimes you've got to be put in your place, and he was put in his place."

SLIPKNOT is expected to begin writing material for its fourth studio effort later this year.

"We're going to start getting back together and working on stuff," Thomson told "The core that writes the songs tend to get together — it's not as easy to work out stuff when you've got nine people standing in the same room. I would say we'll start working within the next few months. I've talked to [SLIPKNOT bassist] Paul [Gray] a few times. Very slowly, no pressure."
