Slipknot announce new album ‘We Are Not Your Kind,’ listen to new song “Unsainted”

After sharing a few teasers throughout the week, Slipknot have finally announced the title of their new album and their new look! We Are Not Your Kind is the follow-up to 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter and it will be released on August 9th via Roadrunner Records. Today (16th) the band has premiered a video for their new song “Unsainted.” The track officially marks the first single taken from the upcoming record making their song “All Out Life” a standalone single.

Guitarist Jim Root commented:

“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.”

Crahan added:

“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.”

Shawn Crahan directed the video for “Unsainted,” and you can watch it below:
