Joey's family released an official statement earlier today (July 27th)

"We are heartbroken to share the news that Joey Jordison, prolific drummer, musician and artist passed away peacefully in his sleep on July 26th, 2021. He was 46. Joey's death has left us with empty hearts and feelings of indescribable sorrow. To those that knew Joey, understood his quick wit, his gentle personality, giant heart and his love for all things family and music. The family of Joey have asked that friends, fans and media understandably respect our need for privacy and peace at this incredibly difficult time. The family will hold a private funeral service and asks the media and public to respect their wishes."

Jordison was a founding member of Slipknot and was with the band from its inception in 1995 until his departure in 2013. Of the nine members, he was regarded as "Number 1." He later revealed that he suffered from transverse myelitis, a neurological disease that limited his the ability to play the drums. Not only was he one of metal's premier drummers, he was a key songwriter in the group, responsible for co-writing some of Slipknot's best-known songs. Jordison went on to perform with Scar The Martyr, The Rejects, and Sinsaenum. While he was still in Slipknot, he also played guitar in the band Murderdolls.

Skipknot and the band's current members have honored late co-founding drummer Joey Jordison by blacking out their social media. 

Condolences to Joey Jordison's family, friends, and bandmates....Bear witness to his incredible skills here (Slipknot's performance of "Psychosocial" at the 2009 Roskilde festival)

'Beartooth: The Journey Below', is the official prequel to their new album "Below" and focuses on 'the world of Barry, its demon overlord.' (written by Tony Lee and illustrated by Omar Francia)

"Storytelling has always been something we've wanted to dive into as a band. Our goal is to build a universe full of adventure for Beartooth fans to explore." -Bassist/vocalist Oshie Bichar

Here's the official press release:
'The story behind the myths of Beartooth's album Below is brought to life as Barry awakens corporate drone Lita's memory of how alive the world once was before the cold forces of the corporate world outlawed rock, reminding her of who she truly was, and who she could be again. Told by #1 New York Times best-selling author Tony Lee with the members of Beartooth, The Journey Below is a powerful tale reminding us of the vital power contained within every chord and beat of a song'.

"I've been a fan of Beartooth since Aggressive came out, and I'm over the moon to work with them on this story. The world of Below is a place I've wanted to visit a lot during the last year, and now I get to share it with everyone." -Tony Lee

Look for Beartooth's new antihero and mascot Barry in comics this November! "Beartooth: The Journey Below" is available to preorder in a standard softcover and hardcover, plus as slipcase, deluxe and super deluxe editions featuring exclusive prints and vinyl. https://www.instagram.com/z2comics/
