Slipknot slyly revealed the identity of their new drummer earlier this week as ex-Sepultura member Eloy Casagrande, and on Wednesday (May 1), he took to Instagram to share his first statement since joining the band.

"It’s an exciting moment. Unthinkable until then. There is nothing to lose, there is nothing to win. There is just living. We’re here as one," the Brazilian musician captioned a photo of himself donning his new mask. "Thank you Slipknot for trusting me. Thanks all the maggots and fans around the world. See you on the road. Here comes more pain."

Casagrande's addition to the band comes after they parted ways with longtime drummer Jay Weinberg in November. Slipknot recently announced a North American tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut album. See Casagrande's post and a full list of tour dates below.
