Slipknot Share New Track Unsainted And Details Of New Album 'We Are Not Your Kind', Unveil New Masks

Jon Stickler 16 May 2019

Slipknot have released a new track alongside details of their eagerly anticipated sixth studio album, 'We Are Not Your Kind'.

The punishing Unsainted follows the previously shared All Out Life in previewing the follow up to 2014's '.5: The Gray Chapter', due out on August 9 via Roadrunner Records. The band produced it alongside Greg Fidelman.

The Iowa metal icons have also shared the album's artwork and tracklist, as well as an unsettling video for the new song, which unveils the nonet's brand new masks via direction from member M. Shawn Crahan. Additionally, the band will perform the single on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Friday, May 17. Crahan noted: 

"These days the art we are making comes with the highest reward, because it's taken the most time. Almost four years to create this emotion and temperature, and the reward now is nothing short of salvation."

Guitarist Jim Root added:

"This is the most time we've had to write a record, and work stuff out together. One of my inspirations this time around was those artists that recorded full length albums - not just songs. While the industry is moving toward singles, Slipknot wanted to make an album experience, front to back."

Slipknot embark on their inaugural North American 29-city Knotfest Roadshow Tour on July 26, joined by special guests Volbeat, Gojira, and Behemoth.

Before that, they'll stream their entire performance at Germany's Rock Am Ring Festival on June 9. They also headline the UK's Download Festival on June 15 as part of a summer European tour.
