Back in early December the metal world was shocked at the news that Joey Jordison was no longer a member of Slipknot. We’ve only heard from Corey Taylor on the split, but now Joey has made his first statement, and I’m more confused than ever. Here’s what he just posted to his Official Facebook page, “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.

Obviously there is a lot we don’t know on the situation, but hopefully we will know all of the facts soon. The only thing we know for sure is that Joey is definitely out of the band, and I guess the reasons why will surface sometime in the coming weeks. Stay tuned…
