Slipknot Shares Third New Song From Upcoming LP
Slipknot has shared a third new song from its upcoming album We Are Not Your Kind. The new track, called "Birth Of The Cruel," follows "Unsainted" and "Solway Firth," both of which were released earlier this summer. A fourth song called "All Out Life" came out last fall but is not expected to appear on the band's sixth studio LP.
We Are Not Your Kind will arrive this Friday (August 9th) and follows up Slipknot's 2014 album .5: The Gray Chapter.
Singer Corey Taylor recently said that We Are Not Your Kind features the "darkest" lyrics he has written "in a long time," telling the Des Moines Register that some of the album was written following his recent divorce, as he fought to avoid relapsing into substance abuse.
He explained, "All I was doing was giving and I found myself absolutely, completely tapped. You could see it in my skin. You could see it in my eyes. That's basically the journey I'm going to take people on this album . . . show them what happens to depression when you have no chemicals to fall back on."
Slipknot's current North American tour, which features support from Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth, brings them to Denver on Tuesday (August 6th).
