Slipknot Are Really Enjoying Fans’ Obsession With Finding Out Who The New Member Is

Who ARE you?

It's been the source of endless online debate. There's rumours, conspiracies and theories flying all over the place. Who excactly is the lad who replaced Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn, after he left the band due to an ongoing dispute?

It's now been almost two entire months since we were introduced to the new ninth member of Slipknot, through the band's latest single 'Unsainted' - and remarkably, we are no closer to knowing the identity of of the masked member. 

In those two months, the new member (fondly dubbed 'Tortilla Man' by the internet, owing to the texture of his mask) has appeared in public numerous times - including on live television. But as yet, the internet sleuths haven't been able to turn up any solid evidence of Tortilla Man's identity.

And it looks like Slipknot are actually getting a lot of enjoyment from fans' confusion, as illustrated by this quick snap captured by u/conflixshuns on Reddit:

They are having a blast with this from r/Slipknot

Cheeky. You have to admire the sheer shit-housery. 

So, we're no closer to knowing his identity. But the thrill is all in the chase, right?
