SLIPKNOT mastermind/percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan stopped into the renowned book store Book Soup in West Hollywood on Friday, June 29. For two hours, Crahan addressed the crowd — which included his friend and SLIPKNOT bandmate, lead singer Corey Taylor — and signed copies of his first-ever art book and collection of photography, “The Apocalyptic Nightmare Journey” (MTV Books).
SLIPKNOT is currently headlining the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, which kicked off this past Saturday (June 30) and continues through August 5. Crahan has announced he will do daily book signings for “The Apocalyptic Nightmare Journey” on the tour and he’ll offer the large format, stunning coffee-table book at a discounted price of $30.00 (plus $10.00 shipping from the festival) to fans onsite.
“The Apocalyptic Nightmare Journey” is an art book collecting eleven years of manipulated medium format Polaroids, each an exploration in darkness and light, and a representation of Crahan‘s second and equally powerful artistic outlet. Weird, wired, paranoid, and endlessly imaginative, “The Apocalyptic Nightmare Journey” is Shawn‘s hand-picked collection of over 187 giant, never-before-seen images in numerous styles.
