Earlier this year, Slipknot debuted a new track from the album in the form of "Unsainted". You can read our thoughts on the track here then check out the video:
Talking about the new album, 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.”
“These days the art we are making comes with the highest reward, because it’s taken the most time,” adds Crahan. “Almost four years to create this emotion and temperature, and the reward now is nothing short of salvation.”
