Ex-Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison talks possible reunion with band

Sticksman left metal outfit in 2013

Ex-Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has addressed whether he would be open to rejoining the band.

Jordison left the metal outfit in 2013, with his departure cited at the time as due to “personal reasons”. He had been in the group since 1995, releasing four albums with the band.

Last week, the musician revealed that ill health was the reason for him leaving the group.

Now, speaking to Metal Hammer, Jordison has said that he would sit down with the band to discuss the possibility of him rejoining.

“Honestly, I’m not trying to be dramatic, but if that was brought up, what I’d want to do would be to get together,” he is quoted as saying.

“I’d want to see them, just hug it out and feel that energy that we had when we were fucking young and hungry and all that shit.”

Continuing, Jordison added: “They’re my brothers. We’d hug and talk and do shit like we used to do. We used to sit up all night along planning this shit and what we wanted to do. So that’s how I’d wanna do it.”

“It’d have to be in person. If it happened, that would be fucking awesome, but only time will tell.”


Jordison also went on to describe the band’s latest album ‘.5: The Gray Chapter’ – the only Slipknot full-length he hasn’t played on – as “great”.

“I listened to the whole record multiple times,” he told Metal Hammer. “And I think it’s great. It’s fucking cool and I’m glad they moved on.”

“I’m glad they’re carrying on the name, because what’s important is the fans.”
