Slipknot has just released its third single within the last year, and it’s one of their heaviest yet.
“Solway Firth” dropped on Monday morning along with a graphic music video, directed by one of the band’s own percussionists, Shawn “Clown” Crahan.
The pummelling track comes from Slipknot’s upcoming and long-awaited sixth studio album, We Are Not Your Kind, which is set to drop next month.
Crahan, 49, is also the co-founder and one of the primary songwriters of the Iowa-founded band.
In the video, he blends some explicit footage from Amazon Prime’s upcoming exclusive series, “The Boys,” with a variety of footage from Slipknot’s most recent tour.
We Are Not Your Kind is scheduled for an Aug. 9 release, and will drop through Roadrunner Records. It is now available to pre-order through the official Slipknot website.
After a two-year absence, Slipknot revealed plans for an extensive North American tour back in March. The ‘Knotfest Roadshow’ kicks off in Mountain View, Calif., this Friday, July 26.
The 29-date trek will take the Iowa-based metal outfit across the continent with Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth, making it possibly the heaviest all-star lineup of the year.
Tickets and VIP packages for the highly anticipated tour are now available.
