Sharing their excitement for the upcoming release of 'We Are Not Your Kind', Guitarist Jim Root shared “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,” added Shawn Crahan. “Almost four years to create this emotion and temperature, and the reward now is nothing short of salvation.”
Slipknot are set to return to the UK to headline Download Festival in June.
