Ex-Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison is talking a possible reunion with his former band in a new interview.
Jordison’s departure from Slipknot occurred in 2013, and at the time it was reported that it was for “personal reasons.” One of the original members, Jordison had released four albums with the band beginning in 1995.
“Honestly, I’m not trying to be dramatic, but if that was brought up, what I’d want to do would be to get together,” Jordison said to Metal Hammer.
He further said, “I’d want to see them, just hug it out and feel that energy that we had when we were f*cking young and hungry and all that sh*t. They’re my brothers. We’d hug and talk and do shit like we used to do. We used to sit up all night long planning this sh*t and what we wanted to do. So that’s how I’d wanna do it. It’d have to be in person. If it happened, that would be f*cking awesome, but only time will tell.”
During the interview, Jordison was also very complimentary of Slipknot’s latest album 5: The Gray Chapter, calling it “great.” To date, 5: The Gray Chapter is the only album that Jordison hasn’t recorded on.
At the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards on June 12, Jordison revealed the real reasons behind leaving the band while he was accepting an award. In the speech, he said that a neurological disorder called transverse myelitis was to blame for his departure. Jordison has since been rehabilitated from the disease and began a new band named Vimic.
