Joey Jordison Leaves Slipknot
In a surprising official statement, Slipknot have confirmed parting ways with longtime drummer Joey Jordison. Apart from citing "personal reasons," no details regarding the split were given as of yet. "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," the statement reads. "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. Thank you, The 'Knot" Jordison was a member of Slipknot almost from the very beginning, joining the 'Knot fold in 1995. He had recently formed a new band Scar the Martyr and released a self-titled debut record. Apart from expressing uncertainty over Slipknot's 2014 comeback plans at one point, Jordison gave no signs whatsoever about departing from the band and even noted having loads of material for the band's new album. Therefore, his decision came as quite a shocker for the fans. Slipknot are currently working on their massively-expected new album, a follow up to 2008's "All Hope Is Gone." More info on the Jordison split is expected to drop soon, so stay tuned.
