Last week, it was reported that Chris Fehn was suing his bandmates in Slipknot over a “money dispute,” now since that report last week it has been announced that the masked-metal band has officially parted ways with their longtime percussionist, Chris Fehn. Fehn was the masked percussionist who wore the long-nosed mask and was a member of Slipknot since 1998, performing with them and being apart of all the band’s discography.

A statement posted by the band on the band’s website tells fans, “Slipknot’s focus is on making album #6, and our upcoming shows around the world, our best ever. Chris knows why he is no longer a part of Slipknot. We are disappointed that he chose to point fingers and manufacture claims, rather than doing what was necessary to continue to be a part of Slipknot. We would have preferred he not take the path that he has, but evolution in all things is a necessary part of this life.”

Slipknot are gearing up to release their currently untitled new album on August 9th, 2019. The band is  also set to embark on a tour of Europe in June, followed by their North American ‘Knotfest Roadshow’ featuring support from Volbeat, Gojira, and Behemoth. Tickets for all of their upcoming shows are available here.
