Slipknot has parted ways with longtime drummer Jay Weinberg, who replaced Joey Jordison a decade ago.

The band thanked Weinberg for his ten years of dedication and passion before providing an explanation for the move.

“No one can ever replace Joey Jordison’s original sound, style or energy, but Jay honored Joey’s parts and contributed to the last three albums and we, the band, and the fans appreciate it. But as ever, Slipknot is intent on evolving. The band has decided to make a creative decision, and to part ways with Jay. We wish Jay all the best and are very excited for what the future holds.”

Weinberg’s first album with Slipknot was ’14’s “.5: The Gray Chapter.”
