SLIPKNOT's Original Singer Has No Interest In Rejoining Band

SLIPKNOT‘s original singer says that he has no interest in rejoining the band.

The prospect of Anders Colsefni returning to SLIPKNOT was broached earlier in the month by current frontman Corey Taylor after a fan suggested on Twitter that SLIPKNOT bring back Anders as the replacement for recently departed percussionist Chris Fehn. Corey replied: “Fuck I would LOVE that.”

Earlier today (Saturday, March 23), Colsefni shot down the possibility of a renewed collaboration with his former bandmates, writing on his Facebook page: “I’m going to take away the uncomfortable conversations that SLIPKNOT might have regarding myself and reported band vacancy by saying: I will NOT be rejoining SLIPKNOT.

“It is certainly not for any animosity I have. I simply don’t know those guys anymore. I generally give those I don’t know the benefit of the doubt.

“I’ve spent the last 27 years (through each and every band) working concrete construction to support my family but still allow time for my ‘real job.’

“After many years of failed bands, failed marriages, and plenty of others, I’ve settled into an occupation that I can retire from. I’m gonna need the bennies — my body is going to shit!

“As much as I had dreamed of rejoining my creation (shut up — I know it’s a different band now!), it is not enough of a dream anymore to risk being homeless when the tour is over!

“That being said, PAINFACE is still working behind the scenes. Look for us sometime this year!”

Colsefni, one of the founding members of SLIPKNOT alongside percussionist Shawn “The Clown” Crahan, contributed lead vocals to the band’s 1997’s independently released effort, “Mate Feed Kill Repeat”. A short time after leaving the band that same year, Anders went on to form PAINFACE, which later evolved into ON A PALE HORSE.
