Slipknot has severed ties with with Chris Fehn. The masked percussionist has filed a lawsuit against his bandmates claiming that he hasn’t been properly compensated for his years of touring with the band.

Slipknot statement: “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.”
