Shawn Crahan Plans to Leave Slipknot


Shawn Crahan Plans to Leave Slipknot


Still preparing to release their new album, an unpleasant news comes from the metal band after their percussionist reportedly planning to leave the band.

Bad news arrives from Nu Metal act, Slipknot's camp stating that they maybe on their way of losing one of their members, percussionist Shawn Crahan. The reports surfaced after Shawn himself hinted to the press that he wants to leave the band so he can spend more time with his family.

Revealing his plan to depart from the metal act, Shawn said that at the moment he is confused and would love to do anything outside of the band. "I'm in a really weird place in my life right now. I'm at a point where I wouldn't say I'm having a mid-life crisis but... I'd love to be doing anything other than Slipknot right now," he said.

Moreover, Shawn also stated the reason for his departure, saying "I've never wanted to be around my family as much as I want to be around them now. My wife is in the best health she's been in for a long while and I'm enjoying watching my kids grow up." He then added, "I guess I don't know who I am any more and that's pretty scary."

Meanwhile, Slipknot themselves are busy preparing the release of their new album "All Hope Is Gone", which is set to be dropped on August 26. Promoting the upcoming record the band have already spawned their first single "Psychosocial" through radio airplay on June 26.

    OMG! ur leaving shawn. Anyway I think ur doing the right thing. Families are important and always come first. I read about u on the internet and it looks like slipknot has screwed ur life up well enough. Slipknot wont be anything without ur action and stuff. Anyway I think u should quit slipknot and get a job and be a happy family member or watever. Slipknot is a really fucking kick-ass band and they have really sick masks but after a while it will turn u into something u will not want to be. I think ur children will respect u as a father if u really do leave slipknot. BUT HEY....this is only one guyz opinion.....so yeah just think about it shawn.....think about whats best for u and ur family. Happiness is the key to life....

    I understand that Shawn needs to leave and spend time with his family,but he has millions of fans that he cant leave either.My opinion is that he take along break.It will break lots of fan hearts if he does leave.

    shawn, after the tours with slipknot, i recommende that you take a big fat break. but you shoudn't leave this band. your a legend, your a awsome musician, director, photographer, videographer, and i tell you, even if your life might be unstable (temporarly, i hope) you shoudn't leave. i myself have sometimes douts about music, but i tell myself why should i leave behind something i love, even if im fed up with it? there are lots of different ways of getting better, and one of them, is to take a big musical break, and do nothing related to music. but please, dont leave this band
