Slipknot Finally Reveals Tortilla Man’s Identity

Can you believe we’ve waited this long to identify Slipknot‘s ‘new’ percussionist replacing Chris Fehn who left the band in 2019? Well, the masked metal royalty have finally revealed who Fehn’s replacement is, and who fans have since coined as ‘Tortilla Man‘.

In a social media post, Slipknot have revealed that ‘Tortilla Man‘ is Michael Pfaff who is known from Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan‘s side-project Dirty Little Rabbits, with Pfaff who was on keyboard. The newest ‘Knot member will be doing a letting you get to know him during a Reddit AMA on Wed, 16 March, at 2pm CT / 6am Thu, 17 March, AEDT.

The announcement comes after Slipknot‘s single release ‘The Chapeltown Rag‘ which gave us a taste of the new era, which amazingly actually sounds like the old era. The Iowa nu-metalers have been teasing a new album for a while now, and we hope it’s coming very soon.
