Slipknot Announce Limited Edition “Iowa” Anniversary Whiskey

“This selection of blended straight whiskies is 60 percent rye and 40 percent bourbon. The higher rye content gives Slipknot’s ‘Iowa’ Anniversary whiskey a heavy spice influence that balances the rich flavor of Iowa corn.”

Morgan commented:

“Twenty years is a major milestone for us; we’ve been on an amazing ride — alongside our fans — and we plan to continue that journey. Putting ‘Vicennial’ together gave us a chance to look back on our body of work over the years, and to rediscover some of our older songs during the pandemic that brought us all to a standstill. We hope that everyone enjoys the compilation as much as we do now, after this historic lockdown, and we look forward to seeing our fans again at live shows in the future.”

Drowning Pool Announce 20th Anniversary Vinyl Pressing Of “Sinner”

Drowning Pool will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their 2001 album “Sinner” by releasing it on vinyl for the first time. The record will be available on September 17 and it can be pre-ordered HERE.

Jasen Moreno commented:

“‘Sinner‘ is literally perfect. I remember hearing and seeing it all come together. We shared the local Dallas scene back then—Drowning Pool and an old band I used to be in—and I’d like to say we kept each other honest and made each other better through competition… but it was never even close.

Dave [Williams] and the guys were the dudes shaping the scene. I shared many stages with Drowning Pool before I was ever their lead singer, and I remember feeling hyped after each performance. I remember believing we’d finally upstaged them. I would have that hope right up until they took the stage and began to play, and then the truth was evident—Dave, Stevie, C.J., and Mike were always multiple steps ahead of any other band on the scene.

The ‘Sinner‘ album was magic, and the guys were on fire. I believe that the record is perfect as a whole, full of catchy hooks both vocally and musically. I heard and saw those songs before a million other people around the world did, and I knew back then that Drowning Pool was destined to win. It feels crazy to go from a hater to their frontman, but let that be my testimony to the undeniable force that remains ‘Sinner‘.”

Mike Luce continued:

“To be here marking twenty years of ‘Sinner‘ is just mind-blowing. There are so many memories of this record that I’ll carry for life. It would require a book to properly express all that’s in my head and heart and all that led up to and came out of its release. As a kid growing up and playing drums, I dreamed of being in a band with my buds and maybe someday putting out a record. Well, we did – and it kicked ass! Thanks to all that allowed this messed-up, work-in-progress of a soul to live a dream.”

C.J. Pierce added:

“I can’t believe it’s been two decades since we introduced the world to ‘let the bodies hit the floor’ and helped teach young kids and parrots around the world to count to four. Some of the greatest times and best memories of my life are from when ‘Sinner‘ came out, so this vinyl release is really special. We can’t wait to see everyone out at the shows again, and we’re looking forward to rocking all these songs, and our newest songs live!”

Clown Says Slipknot “Hated Each Other” When They Made “Iowa”

During a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Slipknot reflected on the 20th anniversary of their 2001 album “Iowa.” Notably, it appears the aggression on that record was fueled by the band’s hate for each other and the world.

M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan said the following:

“When we did Iowa, we hated each other. We hated the world. The world hated us.”

Corey Taylor continued:

“We were just all at odds with each other. I don’t know if it was jealousy or if it was just insecurity; ‘Am I pulling my weight? Is this person getting more attention than me?’ It was just dark, and it really spit in the face of everything the band tried to accomplish on the first album.”

Clown added:

“It was a backlash for our dream. We spent 18 months on that first cycle doing all these interviews, agents, managers… it was all performance.

By the time we got to the second album, people needed to be curbed and understand their place and that their opinion didn’t matter as much as they thought it did. Just because we were the first platinum band on Roadrunner doesn’t give everyone the ability to start advising. When we were home to take a breath, it was clear that [the second album] was gonna be disturbing and force fed to the world.”

“WE ARE GOING ON TOUR!

📢 This tour has been a journey of itself, but we are pleased to announce the re-scheduled dates AND some additional shows! We know many of our fans grabbed tickets when this went on-sale back in 2019, and we are so grateful for them sticking with us. We promise to deliver the show that you deserve, and this time we will appreciate it even more after such a long forced-hiatus from the stage!

🙌 We will still be celebrating 20 years (just 1 year later!) with 3 sets: Greatest Hits (career-spanning), “Discovering the Waterfront” in full, and a stripped-down Acoustic set. For the cities we’re revisiting (because we were lucky to play them before everything shut down), we’ll be performing a broad set spanning our entire catalog. All of these shows will be our longest set ever – you don’t want to miss it.

🚌 We will be joined by The Plot In You & Can’t Swim on all dates (replacing the support bands we initially booked). Both are incredible bands and we looked forward to sharing the stage with them each night!

🎟️ All existing tickets for the re-scheduled shows remain valid. New tickets are available for all previously announced shows right now & tickets for newly announced shows will be available on Friday (June 25) @ 10am local time. Grabbing a ticket not only supports us, but all of the venues/promoters/agents/venue staff who have been affected by the closures over the past year. Let’s all support live music together!”
