Slipknot’s Jim Root Says He “Would Like To” Perform “We Are Not Your Kind” In Full

During a recent interview with WMMR, Slipknot’s Jim Root said he “would like to” perform the band’s latest album “We Are Not Your Kind” in full during a special show. He made the comment after being asked if the band are planning anything to celebrate their 25th anniversary next year. The guitarist said the following:

“I don’t know, man. I don’t know if we’re gonna [play] a [whole] record [live]. We did that with ‘Iowa’ at Knotfest, and it was cool — it was a cool thing. But it might be cool to do… We have been talking about maybe trying to find some way to play [the new SLIPKNOT] album [‘We Are Not Your Kind’] 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, not big stage set, club atmosphere type of thing. I’d love to do something like that. And then maybe webcast it or something.”
