SLIPKNOT ISSUES AND QUICKLY FILLS CASTING CALL FOR NEW VIDEO

Slipknot issued and quickly fulfilled a casting call over the weekend for fans -- also known as "maggots" -- to appear in the new video for "The Devil In I," the first official single from the group's upcoming album. The call for extras to appear as "human maggots," requiring that applicants be between 20 and 35 years old and "comfortable to be shooting in barefoot," was issued over the weekend and was no longer accepting submissions by Monday (August 18th).

The shoot will take place on either Friday (August 22nd) or Saturday (August 23rd) in the Los Angeles area.

Percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan told us not long ago that Slipknot and its "maggots" have a special bond: "I've always believed that, you know, we are not a band, we are a culture, and the reason why we are a culture is because, you know, there's a lot of things in this world people don't trust, but people trust us. Our fans, our 'maggots,' they trust us." it's powerful, man."

Due out in October, Slipknot's new disc follows up 2008's All Hope Is Gone and is the band's first without founding bassist Paul Gray, who died in 2010, and drummer Joey Jordison, who was let go late last year.

A title and exact release date for the disc has yet to be confirmed, along with the identity of the band's new drummer.
