Slipknot introduced their split with keyboardist Craig Jones on June 7. Then a couple of hours later, Slipknot eliminated the announcement and posted a photo of who everyone assumed was Jones‘ replacement. We’re nonetheless not clear on who the brand new man is, however Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor makes it sound like he is been there for a short while.
In an interview with Chaoszine, Taylor mentioned Slipknot took “a little bit extra time” to determine their scenario with the brand new man and that “it took him a second to sort of discover his approach.” Which appears like bizarre wording for a man who’s supposedly been within the band for lower than two weeks.
“Clearly, any time you could have a change like that, it makes it’s a must to sort of lean into adversity a little bit bit. We took a little bit extra time to sort of determine issues out. Clearly, [him being a] new man.”
He later added: “[He’s] good — actually good. He is a complete musician. Nevertheless it took him a second to sort of discover his approach. However now he is killing it; now he is actually, actually good.”
As for who the brand new man is, no one really is aware of. One attention-grabbing concept is that it is Nathan Church of the band DownTheSun, who one fan factors out was the one band signed to Slipknot‘s quick lived 2001 label Maggot Corps. A response to that concept reads “He was my first thought too. Additionally price mentioning that vocalist Satone is a part of Slipknot‘s crew to this present day, singer Aaron Peltz was Chris Fehn’s finest bud, and guitarist Bruce Swink performed in Stone Sour. Loads of hyperlinks to say it is Church.” There is a much more detailed version of this theory here.
Jones performed in Slipknot since 1996 till current day, and has carried out on each one of many band’s releases from their 1999 self-titled album up till The Finish, So Far.
