Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn has left the band. This was made official in a statement on their website:

“Slipknot’s focus is on making album #6, and our upcoming shows around the world, our best ever. Chris knows why he is no longer a part of Slipknot. We are disappointed that he chose to point fingers and manufacture claims, rather than doing what was necessary to continue to be a part of Slipknot. We would have preferred he not take the path that he has, but evolution in all things is a necessary part of this life – Long Live The Knot.”

We will have to wait to see if Slipknot will replace Chris for their upcoming world tour with Metallica.
