Some Slipknot Fans Think They May Have Unmasked The Band’s New Member


Should you want to delve deeper into the pools of speculation, there’s been some discussion lately on the Slipknot Reddit regarding the identity of the band’s new percussionist. The mysterious musician commonly referred to as ‘Tortilla Man’ has yet to be publicly named by the band, though some fans are speculating that the below person, who was photographed leaving a hotel behind another member of the band may be him.

They cite a similar style of shoe as the one’s the band have been seen wearing onstage this album cycle as being their evidence for the matter. Notably there also appears to be a camera hanging from the man’s chest, suggesting he could be a photographer or videographer employed by the band however.

As other Redditors have pointed out, ‘Tortilla Man’ is also allegedly bald under the mask, citing the below photo as evidence. If so, it would seemingly rule out the above mystery candidate.

When pressed for who was behind the mask this past May, the band’s percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan said it was “nobody’s fucking business.” The mystery musician took over the role previously held by Chris Fehn in the group. Fehn was of course fired earlier this year after filing suit against members of the band over a financial dispute.

Slipknot‘s new album “We Are Not Your Kind” will be released on August 09th and North American fans will be able to catch the band out on the ‘Knotfest Roadshow‘ starting later this month.
