Slipknot (opens in new tab) appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! over the weekend where they showcased their new single Unsainted and also played last year’s standalone track All Out Life.

The band took to the outdoor stage just hours after releasing a video for Unsainted (opens in new tab) which gave everyone a chance to see their new mask designs for the very first time.

Check out their performance on Kimmel below.

Unsainted will appear on Slipknot’s new album We Are Not Your Kind, which will launch on August 9 through Roadrunner Records.

Speaking about the follow-up to 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter (opens in new tab), guitarist Jim Root said: “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.”

We’ve taken a closer look at Slipknot’s new masks and compared them with their 2014 creations (opens in new tab).

Meanwhile, it was reported yesterday that Gabrielle Crahan, the youngest daughter of Slipknot’s Shawn “Clown” Crahan, died on Saturday at the age of 22 (opens in new tab).
