Slipknot is mourning the loss of founding member Joey Jordison. The drummer died in his sleep at the age of 46 earlier this week.

The band has now issued a statement saying in part, “Our hearts go out to Joey’s family and loved ones at this time of tremendous loss. Joey Jordison’s art, talent, and spirit could not be contained or be held back. Joey’s impact on Slipknot, on our lives, and on the music that he loved, is incalculable. Without him there would be no us. We mourn his loss with the entire Slipknot family. We love you, Joey.” The band initially paid tribute to Jordison by blacking out their social media.
