Original Slipknot frontman Anders Colsefni has no interest in rejoining the band. Anders took on social media and released the statement:
“Hello fellow Earthlings!
I’m going to take away the uncomfortable conversations that SLIPKNOT might have regarding myself and reported band vacancy by saying: I will NOT be rejoining SLIPKNOT.
“It is certainly not for any animosity I have. I simply don’t know those guys anymore. I generally give those I don’t know the benefit of the doubt.
“After many years of failed bands, failed marriages, and plenty of others, I’ve settled into an occupation that I can retire from. I’m gonna need the bennies — my body is going to sh*t!
“As much as I had dreamed of rejoining my creation (shut up — I know it’s a different band now!), it is not enough of a dream anymore to risk being homeless when the tour is over!
“That being said, PAINFACE is still working behind the scenes. Look for us sometime this year!”
