Slipknot Top The Billboard 200 With New Album “We Are Not Your Kind”


Slipknot have officially entered the Billoard 200 at #1 with their new album “We Are Not Your Kind“. The record is the band’s third to top that chart throughout their careers with 118,000 equivalent album units tallied in the United Sates during the aforementioned record’s first week on sale. 102,000 of those units came from album sales, which greatly benefited from a promotion that saw the group include copies of the album with the tickets purchased for their ongoing ‘Knotfest Roadshow‘ summer tour.

Slipknot previously topped the charts with 2008’s “All Hope Is Gone” and 2014’s “.5: The Gray Chapter“. “We Are Not Your Kind” has been enjoying some global success since its release, also debuting at #1 in the UK and and #1 in Australia.
