New Slipknot Documentary To Air Next Week On BBC

New documentary Slipknot Unmasked: All Out Life will be broadcast on BBC Four next week

Next Friday (March 13), Slipknot will storm onto the BBC with a brand-new documentary and live performance.

The trailer for Slipknot Unmasked: All Out Life (see below) shows features frontman Corey Taylor speaking to camera, spliced between footage of their super-intimate gig at BBC’s Maida Vale studios earlier this year.

From the second it starts, you are willing to do whatever it takes to make this the best show that anybody has ever seen,” says Corey.

We compare it to jumping out of an aeroplane with or without a parachute, and you don’t know if it’s going to open to not.”

The Maida Vale show was Slipknot’s smallest gig for 20 years, recorded in front of just over 100 lucky fans in London. The set featured one song from each of the band’s six albums, including Disasterpiece and The Devil In I. Videos of Unsainted and Duality from the Maida Vale show have already been released and it looks insane.
