Slipknot’s intimate show @ Pappy + Harriet’s:

Slipknot are gearing up for their appearance at this year’s Sick New World festival in Las Vegas, NV. To warm up for the upcoming event, the group has decided to surprise fans by announcing an intimate performance at Pappy + Harriet’s in Pioneertown, California, this Thursday, (25th). Located near the iconic Joshua Tree National Park in San Bernardino County, this show will mark Slipknot’s debut with their new drummer, believed to be former Sepultura member Eloy Casagrande.

The show’s venue, Pappy + Harriet’s, has an indoor capacity of 350 and an outdoor capacity 830. The event was announced on, a retro-style website launched last year that lists Slipknot’s upcoming tour dates and provides details about the band’s 1999 Slipknot album. Ticket proceeds will benefit the Joshua Tree No Kill Shelter and Boys & Girls Club Of The Hi Desert.

Internet sleuths uncover Slipknot’s new lineup:

Recent findings from Reddit suggest that Slipknot’s latest lineup may have been revealed prematurely due to a naming error on their promotional website, The site, designed to commemorate the band’s 25th anniversary and their 1999 self-titled album, contains hidden teases that have sparked curiosity among fans.

Reddit users familiar with basic code used their skills by searching the source codes using Mozilla Firefox browsers. They discovered names of images on the site labeled ‘Eloy’ and ‘Jeff,’ hinting at potential new members. While ‘Eloy’ is believed to confirm the addition of ex-Sepultura drummer Eloy Casagrande, the ‘Jeff’ reference has led fans to speculate about the replacement for sampler/keyboardist Craig “133” Jones. The prevailing theory among Slipknot maggots is that Jeff Karnowski, who previously played bass with Slipknot percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan in Dirty Little Rabbits, could be the new member. We may have to wait until at least Thursday to discover if this investigative theory is correct.
