Slipknot are Discussing Performing We Are Not Your Kind in Full
Take this with a big spoonful of salt, because it’s very much just an idea at this point, and if it ever happens it won’t be for quite a while, but Slipknot guitarist Jim Root revealed in a recent interview with Philadelphia radio station 93.3 WMMR that the band has been discussing performing their new album, We Are Not Your Kind, in full at some point in the future:
“Clown’s talking about [the 25th anniversary of the band]… I don’t know if we’re going to play a record live. We did that with Iowa [20th anniversary] at Knotfest and it was cool. We have been talking about maybe trying to find some way to play the new album in its entirety, from top to bottom. I would like to do that – I think that would be something really cool. And do it in a really toned down, stripped down, no big stage set, club atmosphere type of thing. I’d love to do something like that and maybe webcast it.”
So that could certainly be neat if it ever happens, especially if it’s in a stripped down capacity like Root is outlining, making for a totally different experience than the band’s usual massive stage show.
In the meantime Slipknot just wrapped up their North American summer tour, will head to Australia and New Zealand with Metallica this fall, and then will hit European and U.K. arenas in the winter. I’d have to imagine another U.S./Canada tour is in the works for next year as well. So don’t hold your breath waiting for any eventual We Are Not Your Kind full performance to happen.
