Slipknot has been issued a lawsuit by the late Joey Jordison’s estate

Thanks to TMZ, new court documents have emerged concerning a lawsuit by the late Joey Jordison against Slipknot. Among other accusations, Jordison’s estate claims that Slipknot used Jordison’s name to heighten sales of their most recent album The End, So Far, which ended up being the first Slipknot album since 2004 that failed to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200.

The lawsuit (which, it should be noted, was issued in June 2023) also alleges that Slipknot utilized musical gear and personal belongings of Jordison on their traveling Knotfest Roadshow exhibit, and as our friends at The Nu Metal Agenda note, cast out Joey from the band while he was stricken with acute transverse myelitis which cost him the usage of his left leg – preventing Jordison from performing to his full capabilities.

It continues a tumultuous year for Slipknot, who’ve already fired long-time member Craig Jones and now drummer Jay Weinberg in 2023 alone. They’ve also announced a 2024 25th anniversary tour of Europe + and UK to celebrate their 1999 self-titled album.
