Former Slipknot Drummer Joey Jordison Announces New Band Vimic


(TeamRock Radio) Former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has announced that he and three other members from Scar The Martyr have launched a new band called Vimic because wanted to "wipe the slate clean" and start afresh.

The new-look outfit are called Vimic and are completed by vocalist Kalen Chase, bassist Kyle Konkiel, keyboardist Matt Tarach, along with guitarists Jed Simon and Kris Norris - and they hope to release their debut album Open Your Omen later this year via Roadrunner Records.

Jordison tells Sirius XM: "I decided I wanted to start fresh - I did not want to keep rehashing old ideas. If I am going to keep going, I really just wanted to break loose and wipe the slate clean.

So I renamed the band, and I got a new singer and a new keyboard player, plus three other members from the Scar The Martyr lineup. We went down into the basement and started demoing material and everything started clicking."

The sticksman reports the band demoed around 40 tracks and approached Roadrunner once they had whittled that number down to 20. Read about that here.
