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.”
SLIPKNOT’sWE ARE NOT YOUR KIND is available for pre-order today with exclusive bundles available at this location.
Produced by SLIPKNOT and Greg Fidelman, WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND follows the band’s blistering 2014 LP, .5: THE GRAY CHAPTER, which debuted Top 5 in the official album charts of 19 countries around the world, including the U.S. (#1), Japan (#1), Australia (#1), Russia (#1), U.K. (#2) & Germany (#2).
“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 11:35 PM 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 live-streamed around the globe (in GAS territories the set will be aired on MagentaMusik 360). The live stream can be accessed via this link.
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.

SLIPKNOT shocked fans around the globe last fall with the release of the standalone single, “All Out Life.” Reaction to the track was staggering, with the official music video – also directed by M. Shawn Crahan – trending Top Ten of all videos worldwide on YouTube in its first day on the band’s official YouTube channel. Since release, “All Out Life” has already racked up over 35 million streams worldwide and 35 million YouTube views. “All Out Life” is available now at all digital service providers.
