SLIPKNOT 's summer 2019 European tour concluded on July 5 at Spain's Resurrection Fest .
This past May, SLIPKNOT performed two songs an episode of the late-night American talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor recently spoke to BBC Radio 1 's "Rock Show With Daniel P. Carter" about the band's new live show, which received its world premiere on June 7 at Rockfest in Hyvinkää, Finland. "It's been really good," he said. "The set's been pounding. The show looks amazing. We're all playing really well. We're getting bigger pops from things like [last year's standalone single] 'All Out Life' than we do from stuff like 'Duality' , which is nuts… Honestly, it's everything that we've wanted to do for years, and we just never had the budget and we had also had a lot of people around us telling us we couldn't do it… We want people all over the world to see the same show. If there's an A and B rig, they're identical. We don't wanna come in with some tired, half-assed bullshit. It's not who we are, and we've had to contend with that almost our entire career. So not only is it interactive — there's video, there's fire — but the whole set looks like an industrial complex. This is our attempt to create some IRON MAIDEN stuff, which is something we've been trying to do for a while."
"We Are Not Your Kind" will be released on August 9 via Roadrunner . The disc 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" .
