The acorn apparently doesn't stray far from the oak tree, as reported by (I just googled “do acorns come from oak trees.”) That's right, one Griffin Taylor (vocals) and friend Simon Crahan (drums) are already establishing their own band, and they're getting things off the ground by youthfully honoring their fathers' tunes. Perish the Sacrament!

Watch the Slipknot scions do “The Devil In I” (from .5: The Gray Chapter) and “Dead Memories” (All Hope Is Gone) in the below YouTube videos. The band also introduce a new bass player in the Instagram post after the clips.

Meanwhile, we should have a new album from the, you know, actual Slipknot coming down the pike here in 2019. Rock 'n' roll dads Taylor and Crahan are currently working on lyrics and music for the forthcoming release, respectively.

There aren’t many photographers out there that have both a great sense of timing as well as composition in their work and Nicole has both. She has been attentive to deadlines and quick turnarounds and has always been a great person to work with on many projects over the years. I would highly recommend her to anyone – from a band needing promotional shots to a couple who are ready to enjoy their wedding day." Mike Shea, Alternative Press CEO
