Slipknot Announces Departure Of Drummer Jay Weinberg

Iconic masked metal band Slipknot have announced the departure of drummer Jay Weinberg.

The band announced that Weinberg, who joined Slipknot in 2014 following the departure of Joey Jordison a year earlier, is no longer a part of the group.

“We would like to thank Jay Weinberg for his dedication and passion over the past ten years. 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,” reads a statement on Slipknot’s website.

It adds, “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, who is the son of longtime Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg, has played on the band’s .5: The Gray Chapter (2014), We Are Not Your Kind (2019) and The End, So Far (2022).
