Slipknot is typically found traversing the planet , playing to capacity crowds. Their live show continues to thrill their fiercely loyal following, filling ever-bigger arenas with each outing. Reviews of their last sold-out European arena tour, which was completed mere weeks before the planet locked down, are unanimous in their praise, with Kerrang! awarding London’s O2 Arena show a 5/5 rating, declaring “there is no better metal band on earth than this.”

The band’s current album, the critically lauded We aren’t Your Kind is highlighted by the singles, “Nero Forte”, “Solway Firth”, and therefore the LP’s lead track, “Unsainted”. The three tracks feature an M. Shawn Crahan-directed official music video, each of which trended worldwide on YouTube (all videos) upon release – with “Unsainted” at #1 globally for a full 24 hours.
