Stop everything! SLIPKNOT has announced details of their long-awaited sixth LP, ‘WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND‘, which will be released August 9 via on Roadrunner Records.
Along with the LP announcement, the band has shared the album’s first single “Unsainted”. 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.”
Tomorrow, May 17th, Slipknot will make their televised return to Jimmy Kimmel Live! The outdoor stage performance – set to air at 11:35 PM ET on ABC – will see Slipknot demolishing the standard expectations set for late-night stages.
