SLIPKNOT LIVE AT MSG DOUBLE VINYL SET TO BE RELEASED AUGUST 18 WITH EXCLUSIVE PACKAGING AND COLORWAYS
Slipknot has always bent the world to its own collective will. One of countless examples occurred on February 5, 2009, when the band did what few could have predicted when they’d started: Slipknot headlined the World’s Greatest Arena, Madison Square Garden. The band’s MSG set is now the stuff of legend, being on the heels of the band’s first Number One album in the US (All Hope Is Gone), and only months before they would headline the UK’s Download Festival for the first time. The New York City show was eight months and nine countries into the All Hope Is Gone World Tour, and as such their performance was ruthless and jaw-dropping, and a perfect document of the era for the band.
On August 18, the concert will be made available for the first time ever on vinyl to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Slipknot's fourth album, 2008's chart-topping and influential All Hope Is Gone.
The release will feature new art by the band's M. Shawn (clown) Crahan.
The limited edition, custom colored vinyl was hand-selected by the band.

There was never a band like SLIPKNOT, and there will never be another. Like a spore out of the Midwest, they've quietly bloomed into the most uncompromising, undeniable, and unique presence on the planet whose influence transcends genres and generations. Since sowing the seeds for revolution in Iowa during 1999, these musical outliers have captured a GRAMMY Award alongside 10 nominations, scored 12 Platinum/41 Gold album certifications around the world, and logged over 8.5 billion global streams and 3.5 billion video views to date - unprecedented for a rock act in this generation or any other. Rolling Stone cited the seminal platinum-selling 2001 album Iowa among "The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time," while The Ringer attested,
"They’'e the most important heavy band of their era." In addition to marking the group’s third consecutive #1 debut on the Billboard Top 200, their sixth full-length album, WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND, bowed at #1 in twelve countries worldwide in 2019. Selling out shows on multiple continents, they deliver an irreplicable multi-sensory experience on tour and through their own festival KNOTFEST. With their seventh album THE END, SO FAR, SLIPKNOT are back, and nothing will be the same again.
