Slipknot has teased their 2020 European tour, revealing a string of cities where the band are set to bring their spectacular all-new live production and announcing an album/ticket pre-sale access tie-up to coincide. Fans pre-ordering the Iowa band’s long-awaited sixth studio album, We Are Not Your Kind before 11.30pm UK time on 8th August at the Roadrunner Records e-store, will be eligible for an exclusive ticket pre-sale code granting early access to the first available tickets for their 2020 European run.

We are, of course, hoping they don’t play the Hydro in Glasgow due to the atrocious sound there the last time (and for many other gigs hosted at one of the acoustically worst venues in the UK).
“Unsainted”, Slipknot’s first single taken from We Are Not Your Kind is available at all DSPs and accompanied by an official music video. 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.
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.
