The new slipknot mask, that is.
Upon the reveal of the rockers' recent getups in may 16's "Unsainted" video, a ninth member donning a crumpled, golden-hued mask (plus hallmark zipper) seemed to be a backup man for Chris Fehn, the knot member who's reportedly now not with the cluster when money contentions resulted in his apparent expulsion.
A replacement for the musician hasn't been proclaimed since the band split with the musician over the accounting dispute, that the identity of the new mask-wearer in Slipknot's photos and videos remains a mystery.
It may simply keep that manner, a minimum of for the present. once Kerrang held with knot figureheads shawn "Clown" Crahan and Corey Taylor in Las Vegas last week, the magazine asked the try if they wished to identify the likely new member within the cluster. Unsurprisingly an emphatic "no" was received.
"The position you will or might not be talking regarding is nobody's fucking business," Clown replied before suggesting that fans can ought to come see the band live to make a decision for themselves. "The proof is within the pudding."
Does the mask itself have connections to Fehn? It will seem to own a major nose, however not one as drawn-out as Fehn's last look. The musician, with the new mask, seems within the "Unsainted" video, however solely a number of times.
For now, listeners can ought to wait to find out the identity of the mystery drum beater, however as Clown instructed, you'll be able to come see for yourself.
