Slipknot's documentary film, 'Day Of The Gusano', lands as a 'one night only' event in over 1,000 cinemas globally on 6th September, including over a hundred in the UK.

Tickets for the one off screening are now available for purchase over at and you can check out a new sneak peek of some documentary footage from the movie right here:

'Day Of The Gusano' is directed by Slipknot's own M Shawn Crahan, aka 'Clown', and documents the Iowa band's first ever visit to Mexico City in December 2015 and features exclusive interviews and behind the scenes footage of Slipknot members talking about their long awaited first ever show there and the importance of their fanbase, fondly known as 'maggots', 'Gusano' being the Spanish translation.

The movie also chronicles the rabid devotion of their Mexican 'gusano' and details personal, emotive stories from some of their fans, all interspersed with footage from Slipknot's incendiary live show at the inaugural Knotfest, Mexico.

The film features colossal surround sound, so you'll not only witness the show, but you'll feel it as if you were actually there. Here's the full trailer:

Talking about the movie, Clown tells us:

"Slipknot still has dreams for itself. Finally playing Mexico was one of them.

"It's been a surreal life of rock and roll for Slipknot and the fact that the dreams still go on for us is simply incredible. Thank you."

Guitarist Jim Root continues:

"We had such a great time at Knotfest Mexico... not only with all the friends and bands that were there, but with the fans and the crowd we had to document it with. Now we get to share it with the world."

Kknotfest is Slipknot's own self-curated, destination festival brand, currently held in three international locations; the US, Japan and Mexico.

Designed as an immersive, unforgettable, "dark carnival experience", the event invites you into Slipknot's apocalyptic underworld where stunning visuals, firebreathers and nightmarish creatures on stilts set the stage for an intoxicating and memorable weekend of live music.

Knotfest's plans for 2017 are detailed right here.

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
