Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor spoke in a recent interview with Full Metal Jackie of Loudwire, and revealed the meaning behind the title of their upcoming album “We Are Not Your Kind”.
Here’s the statement:
“Everyone is so at odds with each other. Everyone is so quick to look at each other as an enemy without trying to find common ground. For our kids, for our fans, that can really be a stressful, daunting, dangerous time. It’s very dangerous for people to be different these days.
I will not have it. I grew up different. I know the pain of having to deal with being treated differently, and for me, it’s one of those rare cases where I actually use my position in life to make a stand and say, ‘Guess what? It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, what you look like, what color your skin is, who you love, what you believe – we are a family because of this love for music that we have.’
And ‘We Are Not Your Kind’ represents that gathering of people together and then turning our backs towards the rest of the world and saying, ‘We’re not going to let your illness, your hate, permeate us. We are not your kind. You will never be ours.'”

The new album, We Are Not Your Kind, will be released on August 9, 2019. Back in June 2019, Corey talked with BBC Radio 1 to give some informations about the new album, and said:
“There are bands out there who, they go for all of that experimentation and they forget who they are — they forget that there’s an audience that wants to hear a certain type…
It doesn’t have to be the exact thing, but there has to be a certain emotion that they are looking for, that they wanna hear… There has to be that touchstone.”
