Slipknot Have Parted Ways With Percussionist Chris Fehn, Release Statement
Slipknot shared the following statement on their official website:
“Slipknot’s focus is on making album #6 and our upcoming shows around the world—our best ever. Chris knows why he is no longer a part of Slipknot. We are disappointed that he chose to point fingers and manufacture claims rather than doing what was necessary to continue to be a part of Slipknot. We would have preferred he not take the path that he has, but evolution in all things is a necessary part of this life. Long live the knot.”
In addition, the band's frontman Corey Taylor tweeted something after the statement was made. This tweet can be checked out below.
The band are also hitting the road in support of their upcoming album. It hasn't been revealed if they will have someone to cover for Fehn on this tour.
