US metal band Slipknot has parted ways with drummer Jay Weinberg.

The Iowa-born group released the following statement via social media: “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 honoured 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.”

Weinberg joined Slipknot in 2014 following the death of Joey Jordison and has recorded on three of their studio albums – 2014’s ‘”5: The Gray Chapter”, 2019’s “We Are Not Your Kind” and 2022’s “The End, So Far”.
