Slipknot and long time drummer Joey Jordison are going their separate ways. The news broke last night when the following statement was posted on the band's website:

“To our Maggots and fans around the world,

“It is with great pain but quiet respect that, for personal reasons, Joey Jordison and Slipknot are parting ways. We all wish Joey the best in whatever his future holds.

“We understand that many of you will want to know how and why this has come to be, and we will do our best to respond to these questions in the near future.

“It is our love for all of you, as well as for the music we create, that spurs us to continue on and move forward with our plans for releasing new material in the next year. We hope that all of you will come to understand this, and we appreciate your continued support while we plan the next phase of the future of Slipknot.

“Thank you, The ‘Knot”

After the death of Paul Gray in 2010, Jordison and the band were having difficulties agreeing on whether or not Slipknot would continue without the bass player. There are no details as to whether or not this played in a role in the departure. There have been no other details regarding a replacement for Jordison.

Slipknot's last studio album "All Hope is Gone" was released in 2008. For more on the departure, visit Slipknot's official website.
