06) Corey Taylor discusses We Are Not Your Kind to Full Metal Jackie:
Corey Taylor recently appeared on Full Metal Jackie’s weekend radio program as the singer discussed details on We Are Not Your Kind, elaborated on the band’s brotherhood, the diverse lineup on the current Knotfest Roadshow tour, looking back on the group’s first tour from 20 years ago, and more. During the discussion, Taylor was asked on how the upcoming album reflects on Taylor’s own life.
“We Are Not Your Kind is me kind of putting my foot down as far as the divisiveness not only just the culture right now but the world at large. Everyone is so at odds with each other. Everyone is so quick to look at each other as an enemy without trying to find common ground. For our kids, for our fans, that can really be a stressful, daunting, dangerous time. It’s very dangerous for people to be different these days. I will not have it. I grew up different.
I know the pain of having to deal with being treated differently and for me, it’s one of those rare cases where I actually use my position in life to make a stand and say, ‘Guess what? It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, what you look like, what color your skin is, who you love, what you believe — we are a family because of this love for music that we have.’
And We Are Not Your Kind represents that gathering of people together and then turning our backs towards the rest of the world and saying ‘We’re not going to let your illness, your hate, permeate us. We are not your kind. You will never be ours.’”
