Last night (April 25), Slipknot played an unbelievably tiny show in the desert to kickstart their next chapter, as well as warming up for this weekend’s huge Sick New World festival.

And on top of debuting an awesome throwback look and accompanying setlist (see our gallery here to properly get a good glimpse), the band unveiled their new drummer at the unusual location of intimate Pioneertown, California venue Pappy + Harriett’s.

While they seemingly didn’t actually confirm the identity of Jay Weinberg’s replacement onstage, it has been suspected for a good few weeks now that Eloy Casagrande is behind the kit – and indeed, at this point many are reporting that it is absolutely the former Sepultura man on the drums (have a look at some fan-shot footage below and see what you think).

Check out the setlist from the incredibly special evening:

1. People = Shit
2. Eyeless
3. Disasterpiece
4. Before I Forget
5. Custer
6. Psychosocial
7. The Devil In I
8. The Heretic Anthem
9. Unsainted
10. Wait And Bleed
11. Prosthetics (first time since 2019)
12. Vermilion


13. Duality
14. Spit It Out
15. Surfacing
