Joey Jordison - Drummer Releases Statement About Slipknot


Joey Jordison, mastermind behind his band Scar The Martyr and longtime Slipknot drummer, has finally said something since his departure from Slipknot was announced. Joey writes on his official Facebook page that he didn't quit Slipknot, implying that he might have been kicked out. However, the situation isn't very clear at the moment as the statements are very cryptic.

Joey Jordison statement: "To my fans, friends, and associates... I would like to start the New Year by addressing the recent rumors and speculation regarding my departure from Slipknot. I want to make it very clear that I DID NOT QUIT SLIPKNOT. This band has been my life for the last 18 years, and I would never abandon it, or my fans. This news has shocked and blindsided me as much as it has all of you. While there is much I would like to say, I must remain silent to further details at this time. I would like to thank you all for your unwavering love and support, and wish everyone a very happy and healthy New Year. - Joey."


In December, Slipknot released a statement on their website announcing that Joey Jordison and Slipknot were parting ways for "personal reasons".

Later vocalist Corey Taylor told 93X: "I can't really talk about it right now. It's still so fresh, and there's a lot of things going on behind the scenes that people don't know about. So, legally and respectfully, I can't say a lot about it.

"As soon as we can say something we will. We're trying to protect him, protect us - just making sure we do everything right because that's what we would expect from ourselves and the fans.

"It's difficult. But if people can bear with us we'll cross that bridge when we can."

Joey & MIck were always my favorite. The rest of the band can fuck off.

Why do people think that getting people to keep silent while still setting up press releases is ever a good idea?

Either this is usual gossip bs, or it's another goddamned marketing strategy.

It's hilarious watching all the people at Loudwire immediately fall into the gossip circle...
It's times like these that make me feel like such an elitist.

Its clear and very obvious.

He came in front because Decapitated Drummer Krimh's audition scarred the fuck out of Joey.
