Slipknot percussionist Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan is offering fans the chance to work with him on a “very creative project.”

Clown – who is preparing to hit the road on Slipknot’s delayed tour with Marilyn Manson – is looking for computer programmers who have a flair and love for art.

He says: “I’m personally looking for some programmers who use c#. I am in the Unity community and working on a very creative project.

“I only like working with like-minded people who dream like me. I’m not interested in people who do not understand art. If you dream and can program and want to be a part of something special that I’m creating, then hit me up at”

The early dates on Slipknot’s tour were postponed after frontman Corey Taylor had to undergo spinal surgery after breaking his neck.

Clown adds: “We can’t wait to get back out on the road later this month and have an incredible summer Slipknot style. It’s always nice to feel the energy before a tour from our fans.

“We have the best fans in the world, so I’d like to say thank you for always sticking with us. It means everything.”
