Nine-piece force of nature Slipknot finally got the chance to perform in Mexico City in 2015, and the show was documented in the concert film Day of the Gusano. After screening the movie in theaters last night (Sept. 6), the band has announced an Oct. 20 release date for multiple audio and visual formats of the movie via Eagle Rock Entertainment.

Shot in high definition and directed by the band’s own M. Shawn Crahan, aka “Clown,” Day of the Gusano documents the Iowa band’s long-awaited and first ever show in Mexico City in December 2015. It will will be released on DVD+CD and Blu-ray+CD formats, as well as special gatefold deluxe vinyl/DVD and CD/two-DVD packages. To pre-order a copy, head here.

“Slipknot still has dreams for itself,” Clown says in a statement about the film. “Finally playing Mexico was one of them. It’s been a surreal life of rock and roll for Slipknot and the fact that the dreams still go on for us is simply incredible. Thank you.”

“We had such a great time at Knotfest Mexico,” adds guitarist Jim Root. “Not only with all the friends and bands that were there, but with the fans and the crowd we had to document it with. Now we get to share it with the world.”

Meanwhile, at a screening of the documentary at the Ahrya Fine Arts movie theater in L.A. last night, a mosh pit broke out in the audience. Check out footage below:
