Infectious Grooves Hit The Studio With Ex-Slipknot Drummer Jay Weinberg


Infectious Grooves‘ recent rehearsals with ex-Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg and more have evolved into new music being tracked. The long-running funk metal outfit enlisted Weinberg behind the kit for a string of shows this spring while their own drummer Brooks Wackerman is occupied with Avenged Sevenfold.

In addition to Weinman, former Infectious Grooves guitarist Dave Kushner (ex-Velvet Revolver) has also returned to the roster for these shows and sessions. Adam Siegel, who previously served as the band’s rhythm guitarist for a lengthy run, decided to come back for this latest studio session too.

Bassist Robert Trujillo (Metallica) vocalist Mike Muir and lead guitarist Dean Pleasants complete the band’s current incarnation. The group collectively said yesterday (February 26th) of their time in the studio:

“So much fun and what a blaST! Lots of smiles and a killer new jam!

Yesterday Infectious Grooves was back in the studio, recording a new track and we can’t wait for you to hear.

We even got our old guitar player (and amazing artist) Adam Siegel out of “retirement” to help write this jam (not pictured due to having to leave early)

Huge thanks to Tim Armstrong for always welcoming us into his studio and Joey Castillo for letting us use his drums.

And damn, Jay Weinberg beat and grooved the hell out of them! Was so much fun watching him do his thing, and start everything off with a blast.

More updates soon. We can’t wait to share more soon.
Infectious Grooves is in the house! (And the studio!)”
