In a recent "Tone-Talk" interview, Slipknot's "Jim Root" looked back on the band's first two shows with their new drummer.

In a recent interview on Tone-Talk, SLIPKNOT guitarist Jim Root reminisced about the initial two shows the band performed with its fresh drummer, former SEPULTURA percussionist Eloy Casagrande. These concerts unfolded on April 25 at Pappy + Harriet's in Pioneertown, California, and on April 27 at the Sick New World festival in Las Vegas, Nevada.

JIM ROOT expressed gratitude, stating that SLIPKNOT considers themselves "really lucky" to have drummer ELOY CASAGRANDE, noting they didn't even consider trying out anyone else for the position.

Eloy Casagrande became a member of SEPULTURA nearly 13 years ago, stepping in as the replacement for Jean Dolabella.

SLIPKNOT's most recent album, "The End, So Far," was released in August 2022. It served as the band's final full-length LP before the departure of both keyboardist Craig Jones, who left in June 2023, and Weinberg.

Recently, SLIPKNOT unveiled the North American leg of their "Here Comes The Pain" tour. The band is commemorating the 25th anniversary of their groundbreaking debut album, "Slipknot," which propelled them to fame in 1999.
