Slipknot Troll Fans Over Identity of New Member
Who is the new guy? That's the question all Slipknot fans have right now as they search for clues regarding the identity of the member who replaced Chris Fehn in the group earlier this year. Slipknot are having fun with it, trolling fans onstage over the whole thing.
A newly uploaded image on Reddit (seen below) shows the mysterious percussionist standing behind his rig where a sketched outline of a person with a question mark inside the head accompanies the question, "Who is the new guy?"
The last time Slipknot welcomed new members into the band (drummer Jay Weinberg and bassist Alessandro Venturella), they failed to keep the secret for too long. One Reddit user pointed this out in the thread, commenting, "To be fair his identity is hidden for quite long what's impressive. Vman and Jay were identified in a week after 'The Devil in I' music video was released."
The usually resourceful (for better or for worse) Internet community has yet to uncover any significant clues pertaining to the identity of Fehn's replacement. As for Slipknot, don't expect them to leave a breadcrumb trail. Shawn 'Clown' Crahan went on the record saying the identity is "nobody's fucking business."
