Slipknot released their new video for “The Devil In I” today, and it marked the first appearances of the band’s new bassist and drummer. Of course during the video, they were both masked, concealing their identities.
We still don’t know who the drummer is, but it looks like the bassist’s identity has been revealed. What gave him away? His hand tattoos did. First, the PRP posted this screenshot of the bassist from the video, showing a distinct hand tattoo and finger tattoos:
