SLIPKNOT will perform two new songs during tomorrow night’s (Friday, May 17) episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” The band will play “Unsainted”, which was unveiled earlier today, and “All Out Life”, which was made available last October as a standalone single.
SLIPKNOT revealed its song choices for the “Kimmel” appearance in a tweet earlier today. The band wrote: “We are excited to share with you the next evolution of #Slipknot tomorrow night. Our two song performance on @JimmyKimmelLive will mark the live world premieres of ‘Unsainted’ and ‘All Out Life’. Are you ready?”
“Jimmy Kimmel Live!” airs every weeknight at 11:35 p.m. and features a diverse lineup of guests that include celebrities, athletes, musical acts, comedians and human interest subjects, along with comedy bits and a house band.
“Unsainted” is the first single from SLIPKNOT‘s sixth album, “We Are Not Your Kind”, which will be released on August 9 via Roadrunner. The song’s accompanying video was directed by the band’s own M. Shawn Crahan.
“We Are Not Your Kind” was once again recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Greg Fidelman, who engineered and mixed SLIPKNOT‘s 2004 album “Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)” and helmed 2014’s “.5: The Gray Chapter”.
Singer Corey Taylor recently said that “All Out Life” is not representative of the type of music fans can expect to hear on SLIPKNOT‘s long-awaited new LP. “It’s a great tune, it’s a heavy tune, but it’s not a good representation of the darkness that is involved with the music,” he told 95.5 KLOS‘s Full Metal Jackie. “We are taking some really cool risks musically. We’re dipping into some evil we haven’t played with in a long time, let’s put it that way. It’s got little hints of everything we’ve ever done, but it’s got some of the heaviest stuff we’ve ever done as well.”
We are excited to share with you the next evolution of #Slipknot tomorrow night. Our two song performance on @JimmyKimmelLive will mark the live world premieres of “Unsainted” and “All Out Life.” Are you ready?
