15 years ago, something quite extraordinary happened. 9 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 Sept 25, 2016, at KNOTFEST in San Bernardino, 30,000 people will experience an event that has NEVER been done before. It will be a dense and serious spectacle, both visually and sonically.

But you'll be able to say 'you were there'.

So... Will You Be There?
