SLIPKNOT ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM “WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND”

SLIPKNOT has announced details of their long-awaited sixth LP, WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND, which will be released August 9th on Roadrunner Records (album art / track listing below). Today the band has shared the album’s first single “Unsainted,” which is available at all DSPs along with an official music video streaming on Slipknot’s YouTube channel.  Directed by the band’s own M. Shawn Crahan, the “Unsainted” video, and the track itself, offer a glimpse at the future of one of rock’s most popular, and deeply enigmatic bands.

Guitarist Jim Root noted, “This is 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.”

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

Tomorrow, May 17th, Slipknot will make their televised return as the musical guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  The outdoor stage performance – set to air at 11:35PM ET on ABC – will see Slipknot demolishing the standard expectations set for late-night stages.

On June 9th, the band’s entire performance before a sellout crowd of 90,000 fans at Germany’s Rock Am Ring Festival, will be livestreamed around the globe (in GAS territories the set will be aired on MagentaMusik 360).  The livestream can be accessed via slipknot1.com.

This summer SLIPKNOT will embark on their Knotfest Roadshow headline tour set to traverse across North America with Volbeat, Gojira, and Behemoth joining as special guests on all dates. Produced by Live Nation, the 29-city outing will kick off July 26th in Mountain View, CA at Shoreline Amphitheater and continue through September 8th where it will conclude with a performance at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, TX (see itinerary below).  Each pair of tickets purchased online for Slipknot’s 2019 tour comes with a digital copy of WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND, with further instructions available upon purchase.  For tickets and more information on SLIPKNOT’s Knotfest Roadshow, visit www.slipknot1.com.
