In a video posted on Reddit
Knotfest SB was crazy fucking good. Mosh pits were so fucking rowdy, crazy good but some chicks started to get trampled & have seizures. Corey got mad, he stopped the song because people wouldn’t stop moving to get EMT In. from r/Slipknot
(see also a video below), you can see band’s frontman Corey Taylor shouting at the crowd to move back and make space for paramedics to enter the crowd.
“Back the f*ck up! No one is f*cking getting hurt on my f*cking watch,” he yells, while the band cease to play music.
“Do you understand me? Back the f*ck up! Now give me a scream, motherf—kers!”
Fans on Reddit said that medical assistance was needed following a disturbingly out of control crowd caused young women “to get trampled and have seizures.”
“Kids and females were on the ground, hurt or unconscious, while people were still running around over them,” says Reddit user mSTH95. “If Corey hadn’t stopped the song it could of been worse”.
Another Reddit user, Horrordave76 , posted footage he claims shows one of the victims:
“So the girl I zoom in on was getting crushed, so much so they could not pull her out. It was a good minute before Corey stopped the band and I started recording. It was kinda scary.”
MalnutritionUSA noted: “Bro that was straight up insane at the start. During the huge push on the first song a dude went down near me and was passed out face down on the ground.”
“Every time I pushed as hard as I could to get some room it instantly filled back up with people I was getting pushed on top of him too. I was seriously worried this dude was going to die down there.
“I’m pretty beefy and luckily there was another huge dude right there too but it still took both of us giving it our absolute everything, for probably a minute or so, he was going limp then waking up and going limp etc. the whole time he’s just in a daze saying help me please help me please.”
SLIPKNOT will release their sixth studio album, We Are Not Your Kind , on August 9 via Roadrunner Records . Album was once again recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Greg Fidelman , who engineered and mixed SLIPKNOT ‘s 2004 album “Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)” and helmed 2014’s “.5: The Gray Chapter.”
In March, SLIPKNOT announced the departure with the percussionist Chris Fehn after he filed a lawsuit against his band members over unpaid loyalties.
In his lawsuit, Fehn claims to have always been told that the money from merchandise and touring is funneled through one sole company that splits profits and pays the members of the band. However, Fehn claims he recently discovered that his bandmates have set up several other SLIPKNOT -affiliated business entities in different states that appear to be collecting money from the band.
SLIPKNOT have refused to reveal the identity of the new member, who is replacing Fehn , but some fans on Slipknot Reddit had speculated that Zach Hill is the new percussionist, and said they saw him at Jimmy Kimmel Live .
Band has recently unveiled details of their very own craft spirit, No. 9 Iowa Whiskey , which will be available this summer at select retailers in all 50 states and at the band’s headline Knotfest Roadshow North America tour. A collaboration with the Iowa-based Cedar Ridge Distillery , No. 9 Iowa Whiskey (90 proof) and No. 9 Reserve Iowa Whiskey (99 proof) are made with corn from the award-winning distillery’s family farm in Winthrop, Iowa.
