The long days of waiting for Slipknot‘s next record, We Are Not Your Kind are dwindling. Ahead of the album’s release later this week, the band are giving another taste of what to expect with their latest single, “Birth Of The Cruel.”

The band took to social media to share a snippet of the new track, also reminding fans of the impending release of their next record.

Showcasing a series of visually-gripping quick cuts, the metal icons also showcased their new bleached look that’s helping beat the heat on the Knotfest Roadshow.

“#WeAreNotYourKind arrives this Friday, August 9. Listen to the premiere of “Birth Of The Cruel” now at slipknot1.com – link in bio,” the caption reads.

“Birth Of The Cruel” is the band’s fourth single ahead of the fast-approaching We Are Not Your Kind, following “All Out Life,” “Solway Firth” and “Unsainted.”

With the album expected in only a few days, fans will most likely be spinning the new track nonstop until Friday.
