Joey Jordison Reveals He Did Not “Leave” Slipknot

By the sound of things, it seems that the departure of longtime Slipknot drummer, Joey Jordison was not at all what the band had made it seem to fans.

Last month, the band has released a statement letting fans know that Jordison was no longer in the band. At the time, information had been scarce and the band had said that when the time came, they would reveal what exactly led to his abrupt departure.

Jordison now, has beat the band to the punch and released a statement of his own revealing that his departure was much more like the band firing him than him leaving the band for personal reasons, like fans were led to believe originally.

Read his statement here:

“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”

Recently, frontman Corey Taylor dispelled the rumor that the band were breaking up on Twitter. In his post which was dated December 29 he writes, “For those who think The Knot are falling apart, you are greatly and sadly mistaken. Bring On 2014. Great Things Are Coming. Stay Tuned…”
