Slipknot are on a roll. On Friday, August 9th, they finally released their highly anticipated sixth album, We Are Not Your Kind, and did so to critical acclaim. On Saturday, they headlined the Iowa State Fair, a momentous achievement for the home state heroes. Then on Sunday, August 11th, the Nine resumed their ongoing North American Knotfest Roadshow tour by playing the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, Illinois, and played their absolutely savage single “Solway Firth” — the brutalizing final track on We Are Not Your Kind — live onstage for the first time ever.

Today, August 14th, with We Are Not Your Kind, trending toward a No. 1 debut in both the U.S. and U.K., the band threw a “Twitter Listening Session” in which the group’s drummer, Jay Weinberg, took fans through the album, track by track, from its atmospheric intro “Insert Coin” all the way to the aforementioned “Solway Firth.” Watch the insightful clips — and check out the remaining dates of Knotfest Roadshow — below.
