Slipknot’s new album, We Are Not Your Kind was released last Friday, August 9, and is projected to hit No. 1 in both the U.S. and the U.K.
Slipknot’s new release is on pace to have a combined total of 100,000 to 120,000 total units streamed and sold, with between 90,000 and 100,000 being actual album sales. A digital copy of the album was included with ticket purchases to attend their Knotfest Roadshow.
This would make We Are Not Your Kind Slipknot’s third consecutive No. 1 album in the U.S. following All Hope Is Gone and .5 The Gray Chapter. Additionally, this would be their first No. 1 album in the U.K. since Iowa.
