Percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan has been gathering material for the re-release, and confirmed the news in an interview with The Des Moines Register.

“I’m in a band and I can’t stand that,” Crahan said of how he once viewed “corporate” anniversary projects. “But now, I’m like ‘wow.’ For instance, I’m working for ‘All Hope Is Gone,’ …and what I’m doing is I’m using the stuff I would’ve never approved.”

“Now I can look at it and go, ‘Wow. The fans need to see this.’”

Alongside the anniversary edition of All Hope Is Gone, Slipknot also has plans for a 20-year anniversary edition of their 1999 self-titled debut album, which will get its release in 2019.

Meanwhile, Slipknot are busy bringing their long-awaited new album to life. Vocalist Corey Taylor has said that 2019 is the year fans will see the band’s sixth full-length effort and first record release since 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter.
