‘Unsainted’, SLIPKNOT’s first single taken from ‘WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND’ is available at all DSPs and accompanied by an official music video streaming on SLIPKNOT’s YouTube channel. Directed by the band’s own M. Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan, the ‘Unsainted’ video showcases the band’s new masks and offers a glimpse at the future of one of rock’s most popular and deeply enigmatic bands.
Produced by SLIPKNOT and Greg Fidelman, ‘WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND’ follows the band’s blistering 2014 LP, ‘.5: THE GRAY CHAPTER’, which debuted Top 5 in the official album charts of 19 countries around the world, including the U.S. (#1), Japan (#1), Australia (#1), Russia (#1), U.K. (#2) & Germany (#2).
Guitarist Jim Root noted, “This is the most time we’ve had to write a record, and work stuff out together. 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.”
“These days the art we are making comes with the highest reward, because it’s taken the most time,” adds Crahan. “Almost four years to create this emotion and temperature, and the reward now is nothing short of salvation.”
SLIPKNOT kicked off their new cycle last October with the release of the standalone single, ‘All Out Life.’ Reaction to the track was staggering, with the official music video – also directed by M. Shawn Crahan – trending Top 10 on YouTube across the board for its first day on the band’s official YouTube channel. Since release, ‘All Out Life’ has racked up over 42 million YouTube views. ‘All Out Life’ is available now from all digital service providers.
