Joey Jordison has addressed whether or not he would be open to a reunion with Slipknot.
The drummer played in the band from 1995 until 2013. At the time, it was stated that he left the band due to “personal reasons.” He recently revealed that the reason was a health condition.
Regarding the possibility of getting back together with the band, Jordison tells Metal Hammer, “Honestly, I’m not trying to be dramatic, but if that was brought up, what I’d want to do would be to get together.”
“I’d want to see them, just hug it out and feel that energy that we had when we were f***ing young and hungry and all that s***.”
Jordison adds, “They’re my brothers. We’d hug and talk and do s*** like we used to do. We used to sit up all night along planning this s*** and what we wanted to do. So that’s how I’d wanna do it.”
“It’d have to be in person. If it happened, that would be f***ing awesome, but only time will tell.”
Jordison went on to talk about the band’s latest album, .5: The Gray Chapter—the only full length Slipknot album he hasn’t played on.
“I listened to the whole record multiple times,” he says. “And I think it’s great. It’s f***ing cool and I’m glad they moved on.”
“I’m glad they’re carrying on the name, because what’s important is the fans.”
