Guess Who Is Leaving Slipknot

slipknot drummer quits band

Slipknot recently announced that they are working on a new cd.  That’s the good news, the bad news is …….

Why does every silver lining have to have a damn cloud?  First we heard that Slipknot were going to start working on a new cd.  Jim Root even bailed on the Stone Sour tour to go get started on it.  Now another band member is leaving.

Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison is stepping out.

The official announcement from Slipknot was posted at

To our Maggots and fans around the world, It is with great pain but quiet respect, that for personal reasons Joey Jordison and Slipknot are parting ways.

“We all wish Joey the best in whatever his future holds. We understand that many of you will want to know how and why this has come to be, and we will do our best to respond to these questions in the near future.

“It is our love for all of you, as well as for the music we create, that spurs us to continue on and move forward with our plans for releasing new material in the next year.

“We hope that all of you will come to understand this, and we appreciate your continued support while we plan the next phase of the future of Slipknot.”

No word at all yet on who will take over for Joey but whoever lands that gig has got some HUGE shoes to feel.  Good luck Joey!!

Want a better look at Joey in action?

Ok, watch this!
