NME Festival blog: Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn is reportedly suing the rest of the band


He’s still in the group…

Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn is reportedly suing the rest of the group, despite still being an active member.

According to a report by The Blast, Fehn is taking his bandmates to court over a pay dispute. Allegedly, Fehn was under the impression that the band’s money made from touring and merchandise is handled by one sole company that splits profits and pays the artists.

The reports say, however, that Fehn recently discovered that his bandmates have set up several other Slipknot affiliated business entities in different states that he was unaware of.

The case is currently unconfirmed, however frontman Corey Taylor appeared to respond via Twitter, saying: “You’re gonna read a lot of bullshit today. This is all I’ll say. JUST YOU WAIT TIL THE TRUTH COMES OUT. Long Live The Knot.”

The news comes just days after Slipknot confirmed the release date of their hotly-anticipated new album, while also announcing details of the ‘KNOTFEST ROADSHOW’ tour which will hit North America this summer.

Volbeat, Gojira, and Behemoth have all been confirmed as the special guests on the 29-date tour, which will take place between July and September.

The tour will follow on from the band’s previously-announced headline slot at this year’s Download Festival.

Fans of the long-running heavy metal outfit have been eagerly awaiting news about the record, which will follow 2014’s ‘.5: The Gray Chapter’. So far, only the song ‘All Out Life’, which came out back in October, has emerged.
