Slipknot is parting ways with drummer Jay Weinberg.

On Sunday (Nov. 5), the masked metal band took to its website and social media accounts to announce that Weinberg — who joined Slipknot in 2014 following the departure of Joey Jordison a year earlier — is no longer a part of the group.

“We would like to thank Jay Weinberg for his dedication and passion over the past ten years,” the band wrote in a statement. “No one can ever replace Joey Jordison’s original sound, style or energy, but Jay honored Joey’s parts and contributed to the last three albums and we, the band, and the fans appreciate it. But as ever, Slipknot is intent on evolving. The band has decided to make a creative decision, and to part ways with Jay. We wish Jay all the best and are very excited for what the future holds.”

During his time with Slipknot, Weinberg — the son of longtime Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg — played on the hard rock band’s albums .5: The Gray Chapter (2014), We Are Not Your Kind (2019) and The End, So Far (2022).

Weinberg had not publicly commented on his departure from Slipknot as of press time.

The 33-year-old drummer joined Slipknot in 2014 following the departure of founding drummer Jordison, who formed the group in 1995 along with percussionist Shawn Crahan and the band’s late bass player Paul Gray, who died in 2010.

Slipknot announced in December 2013 that Jordison and the group were “parting ways” after nearly two decades together, though the drummer later said in interviews that he was fired. In 2016, Jordison revealed that his exit from Slipknot coincided with his getting sick with a disease called transverse myelitis and claimed that his bandmates confused his medical issues with a substance abuse problem. He died in 2021 at age 46.
