Slipknot have just dropped the video for the latest single to be released off their highly anticipated forthcoming sixth studio album, We Are Not Your Kind.

Birth Of The Cruel debuted today as Zane Lowe's 'World Record' on Apple Music's Beats 1 and the official video gives us another glimpse at each member's mask.

The track is the third track and third single off the band's new album, following the most recent single Solway Firth and lead single Unsainted, the video of which debuted the band's brand new masks. 

Slipknot are currently touring on their Knotfest Roadshow with special guests Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth
