Jay Weinberg is now OUT as Slipknot’s drummer via a social media post – which they’ve now deleted

After playing his final show with the band on November 3rd, Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg is now OUT as a member of the band, where he’s held tenure since 2013. He replaced the late Joey Jordison, and while there’s no real given reason why they parted ways, it appears it may have been abrupt.

In a prepared statement on social media, Slipknot issued the following statement: “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. 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.”

There’s been no statement from Weinberg himself, who was previously the drummer for Against Me! before joining Slipknot in 2013. Weinberg performed on three records with Slipknot, starting with 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter. However, Slipknot have abruptly deleted the original post on socials. Big yikes.
