SLIPKNOT Drummer To Drum For SATYRICON On Winter US Tour

SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison has been tapped to fill in on drums for SATYRICON on their upcoming US tour. The tour, which kicks of December 2nd in San Francisco, was almost in jeopardy due to the inability to secure the proper rights for getting SATYRICON drummer, Frost, into the US. SATYRICON will be headlining with two as-yet-undetermined support acts.

Frontman Satyr enthusiastically commented on the tour: “I’m just very glad that we have a new tour lined up. I think all of our fans stateside will agree that SATYRICON deserve a better chance to establish the band and our style of music we believe in than, more so than we’ve had so far. I think our music, our effort and all the people who believe in SATYRICON in the US want us to succeed and Joey Jordison is a good example of that. I never had to convince him that touring with Satyricon would be ‘cool’. It was rather a question of overcoming the practical obstacles with Joey being a key member of a very successful band. His enthusiasm and skill is exactly what SATYRICON needs to raise the spirit in the camp. I have looked for drummers over here and most of them are afraid they can’t match Frost’s level of drumming so they pull out before we even get started with them. Joey and I have spent a lot of time making sure he is well prepared; and it is nice to be able to fulfill the wishes of all the fans I talked to on the MORBID ANGEL tour who wanted to see us play in America. Satyricon is coming back!”
