Slipknot to release (sic)nesses DVD

On June 13th 2009, Slipknot headlined the annual Download Festival at Donington Park, Derbyshire, performing in front of a packed house of 80,000 fans.  The performance was, in typical Slipknot fashion, electric, coming hot on the heels of one of the strongest years in Slipknot’s illustrious and storied career.  Now that show is to be released in DVD form on 27th September, as part of ‘(sic)nesses’.

It was indeed a year of “firsts” for a band that was a decade-deep into their superstardom and dominance.  Their latest album, 2008’s ‘All Hope is Gone’, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart in the US – the first time in their US career – mirroring the No.1 slot taken by 2001’s, Iowa, on the UK album chart.  Slipknot then embarked on a hugely successful two-year touring trek that played to packed houses across the globe, including a headline show at New York City’s legendary Madison Square Garden and culminating in the UK with the Download performance.

It makes perfect sense that the band, known for their eclectic DVD catalogue, ranging from multi-camera angle concert documents to arthouse-style films, would release ‘(sic)nesses’, which captures this special headline show at Donington, with the UK being the Des Moines-based band’s home away from home.

On stage is Slipknot in its most natural state and ‘(sic)nesses’ puts you in the front row.  30 cameras were on hand to capture every angle as the nine-piece motored through their catalogue.  The lenses also caught the fans on film, who are just as crucial an element of a Slipknot show as the band members themselves.
Perhaps most importantly, ‘(sic)nesses’ is one of the final major performances from founding member Paul Gray, who tragically passed away in May 2010.  While initially unintended, the concert is a testament to the legacy of Gray and fans can enjoy a lasting glimpse of the bassist doing what he loved most.

Additionally, the DVD also includes a 45-minute behind the scenes documentary created by band percussionist Clown, as well as all four music videos from the ‘All Hope Is Gone’ album cycle.
