Slipknot singer Corey Taylor has dispelled rumours that Joey Jordison’s recent departure from the band means that the Iowan modern metal legends are falling apart.
“For those who think that the knot is falling apart, you are greatly and sadly mistaken,” taylor writes on Twitter.
“Bring on 2014. Great things are coming. Stay Tuned…”
Slipknot announced on December 12 that Jordison had left the band with a statement on their official website:
“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.”
Slipknot are set to begin work on a new album in 2014, which will be the bands first creative venture since the death of bassist Paul Gray in 2010.
Jordison has recently toured with his new project Scar The Martyr, whose self-titled debut album sold around 3,300 copies in the Unites States in it’s first week of release, to land at position No. 129 on the Billboard 200 chart.
