WHO TV in Des Moines, Iowa is reporting that SLIPKNOT fans traveled from as far off as the Ukraine and Great Britain to attend the filming of the group's new video, which took place Saturday (March 27) in West Des Moines. 500 fans were selected to take part in the shoot, which saw the group performing inside a rented house as it was being "invaded" by "maggots." Check out a KCCI TV video report on the "maggot" auditions at this location.
Commented SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison during the filming: "We wanted to come back and just do a video here with our friends in Iowa and make it more real and this has been a blast so far, we're just getting started."
Lead singer Corey Taylor added: "It's basically gonna looked cramped and wet, a lot of stink and ugly, it rules basically what this band is all about."
Security was on-hand, but there were no reports of any problems at the filming, according to WHO TV.
The "Duality" video shoot was helmed by the directing duo of Mark Klasfeld and Tony Petrossian. The track comes off the band's new album, "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)", due on May 25 through Roadrunner Records. The first song released will be "Pulse of the Maggots", which will be made available for download on the group's web site on Tuesday, March 30. Other tracks on the 13-cut Rick Rubin-produced CD include "Vermillion", "Circle" and "The Blister Exists". A B-side from the recording sessions, "Don't Get Close", plus some instrumental pieces, appear in the Activision video game "MTX: Mototrax".
SLIPKNOT are currently preparing to hit the road as part of the fourth installment of the Jägermeister Music Tour, beginning March 30 in Orlando, Florida. FEAR FACTORY and CHIMAIRA are also onboard for the five-week trek, which wraps up May 14 in Sacramento.
