SLIPKNOT guitarist Jim Root says band feels “really lucky” to have new drummer Eloy Casagrande, while band also officially reveals each of their new masks

SLIPKNOT has unleashed a double dose of excitement for fans! The band recently introduced their new drummer, Eloy Casagrande (formerly of SEPULTURA), and unveiled a classic look for their upcoming 25th anniversary tour.

For their first two shows with Casagrande (Pappy + Harriet‘s in Pioneertown, California and Sick New World festival in Las Vegas), the band donned iconic red jumpsuits reminiscent of their 1999 debut. This theme will continue on their upcoming tour, which kicks off in August.

In a recent talk with Tone-TalkSLIPKNOT guitarist Jim Root reflected on the first two shows the band played with Casagrande.

Jim said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “We just did two new shows to sort of introduce our new drummer to the world. We did a secret show at Pappy + Harriet’s in Pioneertown in the desert, kind of over by Indio, Palm Springs area. And man, that was awesome. I love the desert, and that whole vibe is just cool. And the people there were just so nice, so cool, so accepting. And they had to have a city council meeting for us to do the show there, ’cause they were kind of, like. ‘Oooh, SLIPKNOT. This is a small kind of chill, hippie community. Do we want this chaos happening here?’ type of thing.

“But it all turned out really cool and everybody was really accepting and everybody was really respectful. And we raised a bunch of money to donate for no-kill shelters and [generated] a bunch of money to pump back into the economy there in Pioneertown. And stuff like that to me is epic.

“That’s way better than… I don’t know. Some of the shit that you can end up doing in this industry for, let’s just say, not the greatest causes, but when you can do stuff like that, it just hits harder. And it was something special. And it gave us a chance to do something that we hadn’t done in years, if not decades — play for 300 people. That was much fun. I can’t even describe it.

“So we did that to kind of, like, ‘Boom, here he is. Yes, you were all right. It’s Eloy Casagrande. He’s our new dude.’ And then — what? — two days later, we did Sick New World in Vegas. So, we got those under the belt and out of the way, and now it’s time to move forward and onward and upward and do a lot more jamming and rehearsing. I need to get myself into writing mode so that we can write music worthy of Eloy‘s drumming, ’cause that dude is a world-class drummer.”

When asked if SLIPKNOT has begun writing new material and if Casagrande is involved in the creative process, Jim said: “We haven’t really started doing that yet. We will be doing that real soon. Eloy has sent me some drum loops. He e-mailed me some… Eloy does a lot of drum videos on his own and play-alongs in his home studio and stuff like that. So he sent me five or six minute — from a minute long to one that’s a couple minutes long of just him playing drums. And I downloaded those on to my computer and I converted them into files that I could import into Pro Tools.

“And I spent some time kind of trying to write some riffs to them. And it was a little bit difficult because he basically sent me two-minute-long drum solos. And I’m not really good at finding a bit, chopping it out and then looping it to make that, like, ‘Okay, this sounds like it could be like an intro riff on the drums. And this sounds like it could be like a verse riff on the drums.’ ‘Cause the particular ones that he sent me, it’s, like, a lot of real stunt drumming and really busy stuff. And I wrote riffs to most all of it.

“And there’s one in particular that I’m thinking about that if it does turn into a song, it’s gonna be an awfully chaotic song, which could be really cool. So, yes and no, he’s contributing, but we haven’t really gotten there yet. We’re trying to get these shows under our belt first and then it’s time to put our nose to the grindstone and start the creative writing process.”

Root went on to reveal how Casagrande went on to become SLIPKNOT‘s drummer, saying: “We didn’t even try anybody else. Eloy‘s name came up. He contacted us, actually, about wanting to be a part of it and started sending a bunch of videos in. I think him and our bass player [Alessandro ‘Vman’ Venturella] might’ve had a little bit of a relationship before. I think they knew each other. They had mutual friends. And Vman‘s really in tune with a lot of really great, proggy, heavy musicians that are passionate about their instruments.

“And it just seemed like a no-brainer. And he’s really respectful of the legacy of [SLIPKNOT‘s original drummer, the late] Joey [Jordison], and Joey was a huge influence on him. And he’s so humble. The dude has so much humility. And you could tell he just lives and breathes his craft, to the point where I see his passion and it ignites my passion for my instrument.

“And Brazilians, South Americans in general, are so passionate about what they do. Our manager told me, he was out to dinner with four or five promoters from South America, and they were all really stoked. They’re all, like, ‘It’s so good you’ve got a Brazilian drummer in SLIPKNOT now. We kind of feel like we’ve won the World Cup.’ It’s a cool feeling. And God, he just fits in so well. I don’t know, man. I mean, there’s a lot of things I can say about it. I’m just glad it happened when it did. And we’re lucky to have him — we are really lucky to have that dude.”

Casagrande‘s arrival behind the kit follows the parting of ways with Jay Weinberg in November 2023. SLIPKNOT teased fans with a cryptic “Rehearsal” post featuring a single broken drumstick, before officially welcoming Casagrande to the fold.

To celebrate their silver anniversary, SLIPKNOT is throwing it back to their roots.

Speaking of the tour, SLIPKNOT has unveiled their brand new masks on social media, each member receiving their own spotlight. But there’s one lingering mystery – who replaced percussionist Craig Jones, aka “133“? SLIPKNOT‘s social media posts list the replacement only as “Samples/Media.” While a name like Samples/Media would be truly unique, it’s more likely a placeholder until the official reveal.

Numerous fans speculate that Jones‘ replacement could be none other than Jeff Karnowski, who played bass in “Clown“‘s previous band DIRTY LITTLE RABBITS prior to Crahan forming SLIPKNOT. Yet that remains to be officially confirmed. You can get a clear look at the band’s new mask reveals at this location.
