Tortilla Man joined Slipknot three months ago after the departure of Chris Fehn. And percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan is “ecstatic” about it. He said: “It’s a lot of fun. And it’s just nice that, at this stage of the game, when something like this happens, we can actually get someone who appreciates it and will bring 190 percent.” Fehn’s departure wasn’t the only change, Crahan also replaced the crew. He said, “I think the world has an expectation that a band can stay together. Health — mental, spiritual — these are all things that get alleviated as you go on. Things change. And we’re not really good with change, but we’re really good with picking up the pieces and getting to work. Slipknot’s sixth studio album, We Are Not Your Kind, was released on August 9.
