After much hype and mystery, Slipknot have announced the details of their highly anticipated sixth album, We Are Not Your Kind, which will be released August 9th via Roadrunner Records (see the album art and track listing below). The Iowan metal mad men also shared the record’s lead single, the catchy, incendiary “Unsainted,” as well as its creepy-as-all-hell music video. Directed by the band’s M. Shawn Crahan, the “Unsainted” clip reveals the group’s new masks, including singer Corey Taylor’s, which was designed by horror-movie special FX legend Tom Savini. We Are Not Your Kind is available for pre-order now with exclusive bundles available here.

Tomorrow, May 17th, Slipknot are scheduled to appear as the musical guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  The performance is set to air at 11:35 p.m. EST on ABC. Shortly thereafter, the band will hit the road in Europe, starting June 7th, a stint that will include a June 9th global livestream of Slipknot’s entire headlining set in front of a sellout crowd of 90,000 fans at Germany’s Rock Am Ring Festival. Then on July 26th, the group will return to North American stages to launch the first-ever Knotfest Roadshow, with support from Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth.
