5th August 2019 0 By Jon Deaux

SLIPKNOT has shared “Birth Of The Cruel,” the third new song to be released from their widely anticipated sixth studio album, WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND, which arrives this Friday, August 9th on Roadrunner Records. “Birth Of The Cruel” made its debut today as Zane Lowe’s ‘World Record’ on Apple Music’s Beats 1, and is available now at all DSPs.


“Birth Of The Cruel” follows SLIPKNOT’s recent single “Solway Firth,” which arrived alongside a Crahan directed official music video.  The video includes exclusive footage from the new Amazon Original series, “The Boys,” alongside exclusive live performance footage from Slipknot’s recent headline festival run in Europe.


WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND’s lead single “Unsainted,” made a massive impact upon release with the song’s official music video, directed by Crahan, trending at #1 worldwide on YouTube for 24 hours (all videos, not just music), amassing 39 million views in ten weeks.  SLIPKNOT shook the world once again following their album announcement with the worldwide live debuts of “Unsainted” and their 2018 single “All Out Life” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, both of which have become the show’s most viewed music performances of 2019 on YouTube.


SLIPKNOT’s WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND is available for pre-order with exclusive bundles available at  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).

Featuring special guests Volbeat, Gojira, and Behemoth on all dates, SLIPKNOT’s headline tour is set to run through September 8th, where it will conclude with a performance at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, TX (see itinerary below).  For tickets and more information on SLIPKNOT’s Knotfest Roadshow, visit  UK and European headline dates for SLIPKNOT will follow in 2020 (see attached image). 


SLIPKNOT thrilled fans around the globe last fall with the release of the standalone single, “All Out Life.”  Reaction to the track was staggering, with the official music video – also directed by Crahan racking up over 43 Million YouTube views on the band’s official YouTube channel.


Last month SLIPKNOT unveiled details of their very own craft spirit, No. 9 Iowa Whiskey, which will be available August 10th at select retailers in all 50 states and at the band’s headline Knotfest Roadshow North America tour.  No. 9 Iowa Whiskey can also be obtained at select markets on the North American tour ahead of the August 10th official launch.   A collaboration with the Iowa-based Cedar Ridge DistilleryNo. 9 Iowa Whiskey (90 proof) will retail for $39.99 and No. 9 Reserve Iowa Whiskey (99 proof) will retail for $69.99, both which aremade with corn from the award-winning distillery’s family farm in Winthrop, Iowa.
