As if it was no longer exciting enough for Tool to have re-entered the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 with Ænima, it seems that Slipknot will also join them. We Are Not Your Kind was released last Friday (August 9) and is expected to reach number 1 in the US and UK.
The worms are just eating the new album. According to Hits Daily Double, the new release of Knot is on track to have a combined total of 100,000 to 120,000 units in total transmitted and sold, with between 90,000 and 100,000 actual album sales. A digital copy of the album was included with the purchase of tickets to attend your Knotfest Roadshow.
This would make We Are Not Your Kind the third consecutive Slipknot album in the United States after All Hope Is Gone and .5 The Gray Chapter. Imagine that the top 10 have both Tool and Slipknot?
In addition, according to the UK mid-week reports, Slipknot has 13,000 units sold ahead of Ed Sheeran, whose Collaboration Project No. 6 has been on top for four weeks. This would be his first album number 1 in the United Kingdom from Iowa.
I’m into it. Let’s make this happen in the US and all over the world. ROCK IS NOT DEAD. https://t.co/hd9PKDNl4W
