Slipknot’s cryptic video deepens internet confusion after deleting post on Craig Jones’ departure

Posted by on June 8, 2023


Slipknot have been causing quite a stir on the internet lately. It all started with a heartfelt update from Clown, sharing unfortunate news of having to step down from Slipknot’s European tour due health issues, stating: 


“Hello to all of our fans, it’s the clown. I would like to take a moment to tell everyone that I’m back home supporting my wife through some health issues, and I’ll be back on the road as soon as I can. We’ve been through this before and as always, we appreciate the love and support. See all of you very soon.”



However, less than twenty-four hours later, the band’s straightforwardness took a mysterious turn. Yesterday (7th), Slipknot dropped a bombshell that sent news headlines into a frenzy by announcing they have parted ways with longtime keyboardist Craig Jones. The announcement was apparently short-lived, disappearing as quickly as it had appeared. A few hours later, the post vanished into thin air, leaving everyone puzzled as the band revealed a cryptic follow-up or perhaps a hint at Jones’ replacement by sharing a photo of a possible new member: 



But wait, there’s more! Earlier this morning (8th), Slipknot unleashed another cryptic post, leaving us scratching our heads in anticipation. The group shared an enigmatic video leading viewers to his location, unveiling a mysterious video titled “Death March.” Undoubtedly, there will be more confusion to unravel in the coming days. To add to the mystique, rumors continue to swirl after their recent appearance at the Nova Rock festival in Austria, where a new mysterious member was seen performing with them. The suspenseful waiting game may come to a close once the European trek ends, and we’ll have some clarity amidst the whirlwind of uncertainty soon enough.
