Slipknot already have fans counting down the days until this Friday (May 17) when they perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, but it looks like the band also has something planned for Thursday (May 16) as well.

The band shared the following video that links to their website along with the caption, “We are not your kind.” The home page on Slipknot’s website now features imagery of the band’s past masks along with a counter that runs upwards and stops at “0516.”

“0516” obviously translates into May 16, which many have speculated is when the band will finally unveil their new masks that correspond with their forthcoming studio album.

Nothing, of course, has been confirmed, so fans will just have to wait and see until Thursday.
