Slipknot Drummer Talks New Project

Joey Jordison

Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison was tired of waiting around for the rest of the band to get over their grief, so he started a new project.

“I’d been working on new Slipknot material since the end of the All Hope Is Gone tour cycle, but I ended up with so much stuff I had to take a step back and stop working on it,” he explained in a recent interview.

“The time wasn’t right. But I came up with a bunch of material that was really killer and heavy and started taking some of it in a different direction.”

He says he “started focusing on a lot of the post-punk and industrial stuff that I’ve always loved and started putting super heavy and brutal guitars over the top of it. That’s how it started. It’s taken me a couple of years to get to this point, but I can honestly say this is the most satisfied I’ve ever been in the studio. I can’t wait for everyone to hear this shit.”

He continued: “I’ve done the bulk of the work in the studio but now I’ve got Jed [Simon] and Kris [Norris] to play lead guitar on everything,” he adds. “Chris [Vrenna] is doing the keyboards and synths and all that stuff and I have an unknown guy on vocals. His name’s Henry [Derek Bonner] and he’s super talented and a great vocalist. I didn’t want someone from a known band singing in this band, because then it just becomes some supergroup thing and that’s not what this is.”

That’s a pretty crazy band lineup. I’m actually interested to hear what this sounds like.
