Will Haven Recruit Slipknot’s Chris Fehn As Their New Bassist

Will Haven have recruited Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn to handle the bass duties both in the studio and for their immediate touring plans. The following statement was issued on the matter:

Mike Martin has had to step away from the band to take care of his family which some of you have known he has not been able to tour with us the past few tours, so we have been just moving on without a bass player in the past few months working on this new record. Well, I am happy to say we have found our new bass player and we are more than excited about it, Our long-time brother and close friend Chris Fehn (Slipknot) has joined the family. He is here with us tonight recording for the new demo and already has had tons of imput making this record even more amazing, So we are more than stoked to have him with us. Slipknot is taking some extended time off while they concentrate on side projects but when they are ready to work on the new record Chris will be right back to work with them. Until then we will be recording the new record and playing shows in US and Europe.”

Will Haven have most recently been demoing new material for their next outing with Matt Pedri (Armed For Apocalypse) helming the sessions.

    theres a combo i never would have guessed

  • buttcrackguy

    Slipknot doesn’t really need eleven drummers anyway. It’s nice of them to share one.

    El Diablo is quite the classic, by the way.

    I used to live in the UK and now I’m in Canada, I don’t get how popular they are in Europe but no one in North America has heard of these guys. They fucking rule, and Grady is back as well, people should be getting boners deftones style left right and centre! See how I spelt centre, yeah I’m amazingly hilarious like that.

  • Jenkem Dealer

    makes sense since Slipknot and Will Haven toured back in 2000

  • Ganglor

    Only Will Haven album I’ve listened to is The Hierophant and it sounded like a less interesting version of The Esoteric. Earlier albums any better?

  • Surly

    @G-nator – yeah man, like I mentioned El Diablo is pretty cool. Look it’s not ball tearingly good, but it’s still worth a listen I think. Btw, those The Esoteric records are totally under-appreciated.

    I saw these guys open up for Deftones back in 2000, and it sounded like they were playing the same song for half an hour. Grady’s hair was cool, tho.

    I own all their albums and I really cannot say which one is my favorite. The Hierophant was different only because it was Grady not behind the mic. Other than that it was just more brutal tunes from Will Haven:)
