Joey Jordison Unleashes New Band, Signs Global Deal
Grammy Award-winning Slipknot Co-Founder Joey Jordison has unleashed his new band, VIMIC, with a bang. Signing a global deal with Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) and T-Boy Records (UMe's label partnership via Caroline Australia with veteran rock manager Andy Gould). Their full-length debut, Open Your Omen, is set for release in early 2018. Produced by Jordison and Kato Khandwala (My Chemical Romance, The Pretty Reckless), with mixing and mastering assistance from Megadeth's Dave Mustaine, the album will signal and new chapter in the story of Joridson's long and illustrious career.
"This album wails!” says Dave Mustaine. “Joey Jordison and VIMIC are incredible! High octane drumming and heavy, melodic songs make this band something you definitely need to check out! I dig them so much I laid a solo down on one of their songs, ‘Fail Me (My Temple).’ From there we decided to take them on tour with us down to South America where Megadeth is massive."
“The riffs, lyrics, and drums of Open Your Omen will tell you a lot,” Joey Jordison says. “We started this record when I was coming out of the Acute Transverse Myelitis condition. It’s literally what saved me and helped me get back to where I’m healthier than ever. These guys and this album pushed me to not only relearn how to walk, but how to play the drums again. Open Your Omen is the rebirth of the rest of my life.”
Open Your Omen’s first single, “Fail Me (My Temple)” ft. Dave Mustaine, is out now. You can grab it here.
