SLIPKNOT's CLOWN: 'From The Very Beginning, We've Always Grown; It's Our Way'

Spazio Rock conducted an interview with SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan before the band's February 3 concert in Milan, Italy. You can now watch the chat below.

Speaking about SLIPKNOT's musical evolution, Crahan said: "I don't look like I looked in 1999, so why would I make music of 1999? However, I'm still me, so you're still gonna get me. You're still gonna get SLIPKNOT — always. But we, from the very beginning, we've always grown; it's our way. The next thing will be different and different, and you'll be sitting here, going, 'Again?' It's just who we are, man."

SLIPKNOT has released a live video for song "Custer", shot at last year's Knotfest in Devore, California.

"Custer" is the latest single from SLIPKNOT's 2014 album, ".5: The Gray Chapter", which came out in October.

SLIPKNOT recently unveiled the details of a massive summer headlining tour dubbed "Summer's Last Stand". The trek kicks off on July 24 in West Palm Beach, Florida, wrapping up six weeks later on September 5 in Dallas.

The summer jaunt follows a brief spring run that SLIPKNOT will launch on April 25 in Fort Myers, Florida, ending on May 16 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
