SLIPKNOT are set to release a special anniversary edition of their seminal eponymous debut album on 9th September (9/9/09). The CD/DVD package will include 25 tracks; the original album, plus a batch of rare demos, remixes, little-known b-sides and more.
The companion documentary DVD, entitled ‘of the (sic): Your Nightmares, Our Dreams’, is packed with behind the scenes footage of Slipknot from 1999. This never-before-seen hour-long piece was directed by the band’s M.

This inside look features both live and backstage footage from around the world. The DVD also features all the music videos from their debut cycle as well as other surprises.
In another first, Slipknot will host a one-day festival in their hometown of Des Moines on 9/9/09. The show will feature 2 stages and a host of bands with Slipknot headlining. The second stage, sponsored by Jagermeister, will feature all local bands. An official announcement will be made soon.
