With the release of the new Slipknot DVD just weeks away, Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan has a message for fans.

A film.” ” Voliminal ” includes one disc of live footage, music videos and interviews with each of SLIPKNOT ‘s nine members. But the centerpiece is the 90-minute film on the first disc, a stream-of-consciousness style presentation that takes viewers on stage, backstage, in the dressing room, on the tour bus and anywhere else that was part of SLIPKNOT ‘s experience while making and touring in support of 2004’s platinum ” Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) “. “My band tours for months and months and months on end,” Crahan says, “and you’d think we’re crazy to put up with the sh*t we have to put up with to get on stage for an hour-and-a-half.
