Clown Says New Slipknot Member's Identity is 'Nobody's F*cking Business'

Ever since Slipknot announced their new album and unveiled their new masks, the big question on everyone's lips has been "who is the new #3?".

With the band separating with Chris Fehn only a couple of months ago, they've already recruited a replacement who has been present in all the new press shots and the live performance on Jimmy Kimmel.

Well, according to founding member Shawn "Clown" Crahan, it's really "nobody's fucking business" who the new member is.

Speaking with Kerrang! alongside Corey Taylor, the two refused to reveal the percussionist's identity:

“The position you may or may not be talking about is nobody’s fucking business,” Clown said, before saying fans will need to catch the band live for themselves to make up their own minds: “The proof is in the pudding.” 

While some might argue that it is the fan's business, you gotta admit that it's nice to have an element of mystery in a time where the internet almost makes it impossible to keep anything a secret.

One Reddit user has a theory that the new percussionist is actually Zach Hill, the drummer from Death Grips, after allegedly being spotted with them at their Jimmy Kimmel performance. Of course, it's just a theory - but holy hell that would be amazing! There are no real solid leads at the moment, but it sure is fun to guess!

Who do you think is under that new mask?
