SLIPKNOT Confirms New Drummer’s Identity

April 30th, 2024

In a social media post, SLIPKNOT confirmed what fans long suspected: their new drummer is Eloy Casagrande

Speculation began when Casagrande suddenly dropped out of Sepultura on the eve of the band’s final world tour. Casagrande made his live debut with Slipknot at a warmup show at Pappy and Harriets in Pioneertown, California, before their set at this year’s Sick New World in Las Vegas over the weekend. 

The band just announced the return of the Knotfest Festival to their native Iowa and a North American leg of the 25th anniversary tour to support their double-platinum self-titled debut. The Here Comes the Pain Tour includes Knocked Loose, Orbit Culture, and Vended as support.
