Breaking News: Slipknot DJ Has New Mask

Sid Wilson's new mask

Slipknot members getting new masks is the metal equivalent to Jennifer Aniston getting a new haircut. It’s fucking lame, but people — for reasons I will never know — fucking flip out over it.

The last time the band debuted new masks, the internet nearly shut down from the massive traffic generated by the reveals.

Now, it seems DJ Sid Wilson’s got himself a new mask.

It’s unclear whether he’s the only member to get a new mask, or whether the whole band has already gotten new masks or will.

Wilson debuted his mask over the weekend at Ozzfest Japan in Tokyo.

The new mask (pictured) is the work of craftsman Bob Basset.

Gee, it sorta just looks like a gas mask to me.

    You know what is lame? You bashing artists for doing things they love. Their masks are part of them, and their music. So no, them getting new masks is not lame. Asshole.
