New side project
Meanwhile Slipknot drummer Joey Jordinson says he’s close to releasing some new material for a side project, though he’s a bit vague as to what’s going on. On the drummer’s Facebook page, several pictures were posted of him and other musicians in the studio. It’s unclear if this will be the Murder Dolls or if it’ll be something new entirely. We’ll keep you posted. Slipknot is still on a hiatus with a few festivals scheduled overseas. Other reports indicate that the band could reform for new music sometime later this year with a possible release early next year.
