Step inside! With Slipknot's new album, We Are Not Your Kind, arriving Friday (Aug. 9), Loudwire will be celebrating with Slipknot Week.

You may be thinking, "But isn't every week Slipknot Week at Loudwire?" That's what you may have thought and while we feed you desperate maggots with as much Slipknot news you can handle on a regular basis, this week will indeed deviate from your regularly scheduled Slipknot programming.

We kicked Slipknot Week off with a review of We Are Not Your Kind written by acclaimed heavy metal author Jon Wiederhorn and you can keep track of everything we're doing to celebrate by following this page.

There, you'll find new features each day alongside some of our favorite Slipknot features from the past. And, we don't want to give too much away, but we'll have a special surprise come Friday.

Slipknot even threw us a surprise, releasing the new song "Birth of the Cruel" at the beginning of the week.

Follow Loudwire on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as we'll be sharing some other exciting things from Slipknot there, too.

Don't forget, Slipknot are touring North American now with Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth. See all the dates on the Knotfest Roadshow here and check this location for tickets.
