Josh Lowe for Alternative Revolt

Slipknot has shared “Birth Of The Cruel,” the third new song to be released off their widely anticipated sixth LP, ‘We Are Not Your Kind’, which will arrive this Friday, August 9th, on Roadrunner. “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 massive Knotfest Roadshow headline tour is underway, continuing tomorrow night, August 6th, at Denver, Colorado’s Pepsi Center.
