Vimic (ex-Slipknot) prepares debut album
Official press release: Slipknot co-founding member and key songwriter, Joey Jordison, has unveiled plans for his long-awaited return in the form of a new musical venture, Vimic. The band consists of Jordison on drums, singer Kalen Chase Musmecci, who has toured with Korn as a backing vocalist and percussionist, and Joey's former Scar the Martyr bandmates Jed Simon (guitar), Kyle Konkiel (bass) and Matthew Tarach (keyboards). VIMIC has signed a management deal with Nashville powerhouse CTK Management, where Jordison will reunite with former member of Slipknot's original management team Danny Nozell, and will be represented by United Talent Agency's Neil Warnock internationally and Tim Borror in North America. Additionally, the band is readying the release of a new album for 2017, which will be released on Jordison's joint venture record label, with the first video and single to be released in December. "It's an honor to be back working with one of the world's best drummers and songwriters. Joey is a metal icon. I look forward to Joey touring globally and reconnecting with his fan base, helping share his new music and talents with the world again," said Danny Nozell, CEO CTK Management. Fans can expect more information, along with additional tour dates and music from the upcoming album, in the coming months.
