Slipknot Enter Studio, Jim Root Posts Photo Evidence
Guitarist Jim Root of Slipknot and Stone Sour recently posted a photo to confirm the band's studio entrance for the new album's writing sessions.

Featuring a heavily tattooed arm holding a Fender guitar by a mixing board, the Instagram shot makes a clear announcement that the fresh stuff is cooking up, along with a note "Sig love on the API" and #fenderguitar #work #thecoffeesucks and #slipknot2014 hashtags.

As reported, singer Corey Taylor's announced back in November that the Knot will kick off album recording sometime during summer, so it would seem that everything is heading along as planned. As for Root, the guitarist is sitting out Stone Sour's winter tour to focus on the new Slipknot record.

When it comes to the split with drummer Joey Jordison, no new info has been announced as of yet. In the latest announcement, the drummer noted that he "didn't quit Slipknot," insisting he would "never abandon it" and therefore hinting at the fact that he was fired. However, no official statements can be made on either side due to legal reasons.
