Slipknot: New Bassist’s Identity Revealed?


So. As you’re probably well aware by now, this morning, Slipknot released a new music video for their song “The Devil in I,” which featured the debut appearances of their bassist and drummer. Only thing is, said bassist and drummer are, of course, masked, and the band still hasn’t revealed their identities.

Well, we still don’t know who’s playing drums… but we think we’ve figured out who the bassist is!

First, The PRP posted this screencap of the ‘Knot’s new bassist, who has a fairly distinctive hand tattoo:

So we did just that, and, hey, guess what? It looks like he has the same tattoo.

We’ll let you know as soon as we get confirmation, natch. In the meantime, tell us if you think we’re right or not in the comments section below.
