Over the past few days, Slipknot have been dropping teasers for the date of May 16. Fans have been eagerly waiting to see what news or music the band might drop, and they certainly didn’t disappoint.

Slipknot announced the details of their sixth LP along with the release of the first single, “Unsainted.”

“This is most time we’ve had to write a record, and work stuff out together,” guitarist Jim Root says. “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.”

The official video for “Unsainted” was directed by the band’s very own M. Shawn Crahan and offers a glimpse into what we can expect for the future of Slipknot.

Check out “Unsainted” below!

WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND is set to be released Aug. 9 and is available for preorder here.

“These days the art we are making comes with the highest reward, because it’s taken the most time,” Crahan says. “Almost four years to create this emotion and temperature, and the reward now is nothing short of salvation.”
