With frontman Corey Taylor healing upfrom double-knee surgery, Slipknot is rearing up to unleash its first studio album in five years.
On Thursday (May 16), the masked metal warriors finally opened up about the long-rumored new project: It's called WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND, and it's due Aug. 9 on Roadrunner Records. It marks Slipknot's first full-length since .5: THE GRAY CHAPTER in 2014.
They've also shared the album's lead single: Find the video for "Unsainted" below, directed by the band's own M. Shawn Crahan, aka Clown (#6).
To kick off the new promotion cycle, Slipknot is set to perform Friday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, presumably giving fans a live taste of "Unsainted."
Later on this summer, Slipknot will hit the road in North America on its Knotfest Roadshow, starting July 26 with Volbeat, Gojira, Behemoth and others in support. Find those dates here.
