Slipknot’s Clown was the recent guest of the Consequence of Sound interview and revealed a lot of untold truth about Slipknot’s latest album, We Are Not Your Kind.
As he will read the album process below, Clown admitted that he wanted to share the name of the album alone.
Here is what he said:
“When you’re making art, and certain things show themselves, you have to levitate to them … I can remember when Corey [Taylor] first came in to do the first round of vocals for half the album.
When I [heard him say, “We Are Not Your Kind”], I instantly wrote it down. We all took note of it; anybody who was there, that line stuck out [to them]. I wanted to release that name when we [put out] the “All Out Life” video.
I wanted to let the world know that not only are we here, here’s a new song, the album will be coming out. I wanted to give them the title of the album.
And I couldn’t get anybody to be down with that; I thought it would be good to just get it out because I believed in it so much. But everything has its right place, and I’m glad we did wait; that was a good call. Because this title is just who we are.”
