Beer keg smashing precussionist Chris Fehn has split with Slipknot, according to a statement on the band's website. The announcement follows a report last week that Fehn was suing the group over a 'money dispute.'
"Slipknot's focus is on making album #6, and our upcoming shows around the world, our best ever," the statement reads.
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."
At the time of writing, Fehn has not commented on the split or reported lawsuit.
