Whilst I didn't see it coming it doesn't come as much of a shock either, with the amount of side projects from various members it was starting to feel like Slipknot was the lowest priority.

I'd go out on a limb and say it's because of Corey Taylor who seems to think he owns Slipknot and has delayed Slipknot in making new material because he's a fu cking cry baby and is still sobbing over Paul Gray!

I seem to recall seeing various quotes from the band over the recent years about new material in which Joey and Corey always gave differing answers. I seem to recall Corey saying nothing was happening, and that the future of slipknot was uncertain as there were no plans with the loss of Grey, but Joey had said the band were already in the process of making new material and if Corey wanted in he would be welcome, if not they would carry on regardless. So would not surprise me if it ended up being around speed that the band is going at.

Now if he would just reform Murderdolls for me and the world will be set right

Yeah there were quite a few interviews around 6 months after Paul Gray had past where Joey was talking about he'd already started writing for a new Slipknot album and even Shaun was saying there will definitely be another album! When Corey was interviewed he stated many times that there wasn't any plans for a new album and that they weren't ready to even start thinking about it.

Nah the reunion will be Disturbed not Murderdolls that's the reason Device have pulled out of their tour.

If Disturbed were reuniting they'd be subbing for sure.

Sub headlining main stage is equivalent to headlining second stage and i think we're still waiting for the last second stage headliner for Download ;)

Seems a bit strange he chooses to leave now, would have thought that after finally getting themselves back together and some shows under their belt that they would have stabilised; would have thought that if anyone left it would have been awhile ago rather than now.

I wonder after the whole Paul Grey saga and how they've been so uncertain what will happen now Joey's left? Do they plow ahead, call it quits or wait around another few years

Let's face it, this didn't even need to be announced. They could have quite happily stuffed Mike Portnoy under Joey Jordison's mask without telling anyone and noone would have ever been any the wiser.

I'm sorry but the image of Portnoy's beard sticking out underneath Joey's mask is hilarious :lol:

did find this article just before

If any of it is true then saying Joey had written nothing, and Joey previously stating he had written about 17 tracks makes me assume that the fall out is somehow related.

How? There's plenty of drummers better than Joey that you can shove under a mask and move on.

After Paul Grey's death they made a big point of the camaraderie they now share, for a member to walk out after that big statement and just before they plan their first set of new material since Grey's death; it's going to be a big blow to any band that can't be fixed by just placing a competent drummer in there.

Speaking of replacing members, what are they doing in terms of a bass player? Are they making the guy who plays it live now to take over full time?
