Slipknot have shared ‘Solway Firth,’ the second new track to be released from their widely anticipated sixth studio LP, We Are Not Your Kind, which arrives 9th of August via Roadrunner Records. ‘Solway Firth’ is available now at all DSPs along with an official music video streaming on Slipknot’s YouTube channel which you can watch below. ‘Solway Firth‘ follows first single ‘Unsainted‘.

Directed by the band’s own M. Shawn Crahan, and created with UPROXX and Amazon Prime Video, the ‘Solway Firth’ video features exclusive footage from the new Amazon Original, ‘The Boys’ (premiering 26th July) alongside exclusive live performance footage from Slipknot’s recent headline festival run in Europe. The Boys is based on the Garth Ennis comic of the same name; Ennis is known for his writing of incredibly violent, yet darkly funny comics including Preacher, Crossed and a long run on DC Comics’ Hellblazer.
