(Metal Hammer) Slipknot will perform their 2001 album Iowa in full at Knotfest next month. Earlier this week, the band's frontman Corey Taylor hinted that he and Shawn 'Clown' Crahan had been "conspiring to do something insane" to mark the anniversary of one of their records - but stopped short of saying which one it would be.

Now Slipknot have confirmed that it'll be Iowa, which Metal Hammer recently voted the best album of the 21st century. The band say: "Fifteen years ago, something quite extraordinary happened. Nine men from Iowa went in to a studio in California and created one of the most chaotic and destructive albums ever made. It was, and still is, a shockingly physical and ferocious recording.

"To this day, it has never been performed in its entirety. That is about to change. On September 25, 2016, at Knotfest in San Bernardino, 30,000 people will experience an event that has never been done before." Read more here.
