The metal world was shocked last month when it was revealed that Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison left the band for “personal reasons.” Not much information was given aside from singer Corey Taylor assuring fans the band would solider on without him. However, Jordison released a statement to Metal Hammer on Jan. 2 where he states he did not abandon the group.

He wrote: “To my fans, friends, and associates… I would like to start the New Year by addressing the recent rumours 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.”

He doesn't come out and say he was fired from the band, rather saying he was “blindsided” by his leaving the group. He says at this time he can't release anymore details about the departure. Jordison ended the message with “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.” The other members of Slipknot have yet to release a comment.
