“From the beginning, Slipknot’s goal has always been world domination,” percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan writes in the video’s description. “That goal is still the same today. The video for ‘The Shape,’ filmed at our festival Knotfest with our ‘maggots,’ and over 1 billion views on our YouTube channel, proves it’s happening. Like it or not.”
The video also documents the first time Slipknot has ever played “The Shape” live. During their Knotfest headlining set, the band performed Iowa in its entirety in honor of its 15th anniversary.
Slipknot doesn’t have any tour dates currently lined up, but frontman Corey Taylor will hit the road this summer with his other band, Stone Sour, in support of their forthcoming album Hydrograd, due out June 30.
