SLIPKNOT’s (sic)nesses DVD, which captures the band’s June 2009 performance in front of 80,000 maniacal fans at the storied Download Festival in the UK, debuted at #1 on the Billboard DVD chart.
Slipknot’s M. Shawn Crahan (Clown), who is the architect of (sic)nesses, said.
“(sic)nesses was one of the single hardest pieces of art for us to complete, given the circumstances,” “It’s a testament to our evolution and proof of accomplishing exactly what we set out to do over 10 years ago. We will never be the same. You will never be the same. Here’s to the future and our continuing evolution.”
(sic)nesses’ release was preceded by in-theater screenings across the country. An intimate fan screening in New York City, attended by Clown himself, saw fans moshing in the aisles during the presentation.
