SLIPKNOT's "Unsainted" has been chosen as the theme song for WWE's upcoming "NXT TakeOver" event. "NXT TakeOver: Toronto II" will take place on Saturday, August 10 from the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada during WWE SummerSlam weekend. NXT champion Adam Cole vs. Johnny Gargano will headline the show.
This past April, SLIPKNOT's 2018 standalone single "All Out Life" was picked as the theme for WWE's "NXT" weekly show. "NXT" also released a music video for "All Out Life" featuring "NXT" superstars Johnny Gargano, The Undisputed ERA, Shayna Baszler, The War Raiders and more.
"Unsainted" is taken from SLIPKNOT's sixth studio album, "We Are Not Your Kind", which will arrive on August 9. It has been preceded by the release of "Unsainted" and "Solway Firth", and the first live performance on this album cycle, a two-song appearance on the May 17 edition of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
"We Are Not Your Kind" was once again recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Greg Fidelman, who engineered and mixed SLIPKNOT's 2004 album "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)" and helmed 2014's ".5: The Gray Chapter".
Guitarist Jim Root stated about "We Are Not Your Kind": "This is most time we've had to write a record, and work stuff out together. One of my inspirations this time around was those artists that recorded full length albums — not just songs. While the industry is moving toward singles, SLIPKNOT wanted to make an album experience, front to back."
