Last night, May 17th, Slipknot made their highly anticipated return to late-night television with a sunlit two-song set on the outdoor stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live!, playing their two most recent singles, "Unsainted" and "All Out Life," for the first time ever. The performance also marked the first onstage appearance of the group in their new masks and attire. Frontman Corey Taylor — who recently underwent double-knee surgery — appeared to be in good shape, prowling the stage comfortably on two feet. He was notably surrounded by eight bandmates, including the 'Knot's mystery second percussionist, who banged on kegs in Cenobite-ian mask alongside Shawn "Clown" Crahan, putting to bed one Maggot's fan theory that the new band member and Taylor were, in fact, one and the same. See official footage of the performance above and below.
"Unsainted" is the lead single off the 'Knot's forthcoming sixth album, We Are Not Your Kind, which is due August 9th via Roadrunner Records. ("All Out Life" does not appear on the record; see the track list below.) Ahead of the LP, the band is set to tour Europe, starting June 7th, and then lead the inaugural Knotfest Roadshow July 26th, with support from Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth.
