SLIPKNOT has parted ways with keyboardist Craig Jones

Earlier today (Wednesday, June 7), the band posted the following statement to their social media: “To our fans, SLIPKNOT is announcing that we have parted ways with Craig Jones.

“We wish Jones all the best for the future.”

As of this point, no reason has been given for Jones‘s departure from the band. It is also unclear if Craig will be replaced for the band’s 2023 European tour dates, which commences tonight at the Nova Rock festival in Austria.

Craig joined the group in early 1996 as the replacement for original guitarist Donnie Steele, but soon moved on to the role of sampling and keyboards.

Following the band’s split with drummer Joey Jordison in 2013, Jones was the second-longest-standing member in the band.
