Slipknot’s new album ‘We Are Not Your Kind‘ is scheduled to arrive on August 9. The band’s sixth LP follows 2014’s ‘.5: The Gray Chapter’.

Reviewing Slipknot’s Download Festival gig, NME said: “The message tonight is clear. Anyone who has ever thought this band was a joke, a novelty or not metal enough: hear them fucking roar. They literally cannot and will not be destroyed.”
