Slipknot Fires Chris Fehn Over Lawsuit Against The Band

Slipknot, by Evil Robb Photography

In a story Ghost Cult reported on and has been following all week, Chris Fehn (a.k.a. #3) who filed a lawsuit against the members of Slipknot has been dismissed from the band, according to a post on their website. A day after Fehn filed suit against the band and alleged improprieties regarding payments for touring for over 21 years in the band and specifically naming Corey Taylor and M. Shawn Crahan primary instigators of said practices, Taylor hit back over social media. His message warned of reprisal and the truth was forthcoming. Now Chris has been dismissed from the band he was a part of since 1998. Fehn is not the first member to leave the band in their history or since their rise to fame, as Joey Jordison left the band in 2013, and Paul Grey who passed away in 2010. No word yet if the band will replace Fehn, a percussionist with the band. All traces of him have been cleaned from the Slipknot website. We’ll keep following this story as it develops. Slipknot’s sixth and as yet untitled album is in progress and releases August 9th via the bands’ long-term label home Roadrunner Records.
