In the wake of the accusations percussionist Chris Fehn leveled against SLIPKNOT last week, the band has now announced that Fehn is no longer a member of SLIPKNOT.
Here is their official statement:
“Slipknot’s focus is on making album #6, and our upcoming shows around the world, our best ever. Chris knows why he is no longer a part of Slipknot. We are disappointed that he chose to point fingers and manufacture claims, rather than doing what was necessary to continue to be a part of Slipknot. We would have preferred he not take the path that he has, but evolution in all things is a necessary part of this life.”
