Former Slipknot drummer, Joey Jordison, promised big news today and here it is! After various personnel problems, he has laid Scar The Martyr to rest, and has now revealed VIMIC! The new band features Kalen Chase, Kris Norris, Jed Simon, Kyle Konkiel, Matt Tarach, and Joey Jordison, and they debuted their “Simple Skeletons“ single on SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal today! Find out more details, and listen to the new track below!
Here’s what Joey had to say on VIMIC: “I decided I wanted to start fresh. I did not want to keep rehashing old ideas. If I am going to keep going, I really just wanted to break loose and wipe the slate clean. So I renamed the band, and I got a new singer and a new keyboard player [plus] three other members from the Scar The Martyr lineup. We went down into the basement and started demoing material and everything started clicking. We didn’t have too many big goals. There wasn’t too much pressure from the label. We just went in, like let’s just go back to getting into the studio, jamming as a band, getting together with our instruments and not having anything too formulated and just creating from the ground up. And that was one of the coolest things about creating this record was it was really old-school style. We’re totally proud of it, man.”
