Former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has launched a new band called VIMIC. Among its members are several musicians from Jordison's last project, Scar The Martyr:

Kalen Chase (vocals)
Jed Simon (guitars)
Matt Tarach (keyboards)
Kyle Konkiel (bass)
Joey Jordison (drums)

The group's debut album, Open Your Omen, will hit streets later this year via Roadrunner Records. In the interim, you can hear the band's debut single, "Simple Skeletons," below, courtesy of SiriusXM's Liquid Metal.

Just quit music, Joey. Ever since you left Slipknot you suck. Falling in Reverse is better than this shit.

Slipknot is terrible, but getting a six-figure royalty check every year without actually having to be in the band anymore must be nice.

I'm really surprised Todd Jones isn't in this band, he's the only one that can bring Joey back into underground superstardom

Jesus Christ this dude just pumps out nothing but garbage with every side project. Orgy and 12 year old kids in 1999 are way stoked on this. Poor fella.

Todd jones told me slipknot is a poser band and they switch out members every show because they're all posers. He said Corey Taylor does not get street cred for his Dio cover.
