SLIPKNOT Frontman Talks 'Iowa' 10th-Anniversary Reissue In New Video Clip

It's been 10 years since SLIPKNOT unleashed its second album, "Iowa", on the world. SLIPKNOT had impacted the music scene in revolutionary, unpredictable ways and established themselves as a way of life for their fans with their self-titled 1999 debut. But "Iowa" was the album that further proved the band had fully arrived and had no intentions of leaving. It was the band's statement that that they would continue to make music their way, according to their rules and always for their fans, with their middle fingers pointed firmly at the rest of the world.

To celebrate the album's decade of existence, the band is releasing a special, tenth-anniversary edition of this landmark release, which will drop on November 1.

The anniversary edition will include plenty of extras for the maggots and beyond to feast upon. Disc One will comprise the original "Iowa" album along with a remix of "My Plague" as an added bonus track. Disc Two will include the full live audio from the legendary "Disasterpieces" DVD, where the band's 2002 show at the London Arena was captured by 30 cameras and released as a concert film. The DVD will include "Goat", a new film directed by M. Shawn Crahan featuring never-before-seen interviews and footage showing the madness that surrounded the "Iowa" era, plus four music videos.

The album has shifted more than two million units domestically, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
