After months of speculation, Slipknot has now revealed more details on their upcoming release. Their sixth album with the title We Are Not Your Kind is scheduled to be released on 9 August 2019.
It has been five years since the American heavy metal band Slipknot released their fifth album .5: The Gray Chapter. This was their first studio album not to feature original founding members bassist Paul Gray, who died in 2010 and drummer Joey Jordison. On October 2018, the band released a new track with the title ‘All Out Life’.
Now, the album’s title has been revealed to be We Are Not Your Kind and will come out this August. Moreover, the new masks and outfits for the nine band members of the band were also revealed. Following the departure of Chris Fehn in March, Slipknot also released a brand new track from their upcoming record.
Earlier, Slipknot announced that they will headline many European festivals this summer including Volt, Rock am Ring & Rock im Park, Download UK, Graspop, Nova Rock, Knottfest Meets Hellfest and more.
