SLIPKNOT has shared “Solway Firth”, the second new song to be released off the band’s widely anticipated sixth LP, “We Are Not Your Kind”, which will arrive August 9 on Roadrunner Records.
“Solway Firth” is available now at all DSPs along with an official music video directed by the band’s own M. Shawn Crahan. Created with Uproxx and Amazon Prime Video, the clip features exclusive footage from the new Amazon original “The Boys” (premiering July 26) alongside live performance footage from SLIPKNOT‘s recent headline festival run in Europe.
“We Are Not Your Kind” was once again recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Greg Fidelman, who engineered and mixed SLIPKNOT‘s 2004 album “Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)” and helmed 2014’s “.5: The Gray Chapter”.
Guitarist Jim Root stated about “We Are Not Your Kind”: “This is 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,” added percussionist M. Shawn Crahan. “Almost four years to create this emotion and temperature, and the reward now is nothing short of salvation.”

03. Birth Of The Cruel
