Slipknot Announce Screenings of Clown’s Director’s Cut of ‘(sic)nesses’
Every release for the metal juggernaut Slipknot is an event, including their fourth DVD, ‘(sic)nesses.’ Scores of theaters are already scheduled to run the film (a list is being updated constantly), but now three special screenings are set, which will highlight Clown’s director’s cut of ‘(sic)nesses.’ This is not the version that will be available at the shop or internet store come Sept. 28.
‘(sic)nesses’ is built around the band’s June 13, 2009 headline performance at the Download Festival in the U.K., where the band laid waste to 80,000 fans. In addition to the career-spanning set, the DVD features a 45-minute film, music videos and much more.
The three screenings of Clown’s director’s version will be free to the public and will feature prize giveaways throughout the nights. The percussionist himself will be attending the film on Sept. 27 at the Anthology Film Archives in New York City. On the DVD’s release date, his version will go to Chicago at the 1901 Gallery. From there it will be shown in Los Angeles on the Sept. 28 at Echo Park Film Center.
