VIMIC’s “My Fate”

Former SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison has launched a new band called VIMIC. He is joined in the group by singer Kalen Chase Musmecci, who has toured with KORN as a backing vocalist and percussionist, and Joey‘s former SCAR THE MARTYR bandmates Jed Simon (guitar), Kyle Konkiel (bass) and Matthew Tarach (keyboards).

VIMIC recently completed work on its debut album, “Open Your Omen“, with producer Kato Khandwala, who has previously worked with THE PRETTY RECKLESS and WE ARE THE HARLOT.

The CD will be released later this year via Roadrunner Records.

The official video for the VIMIC song called “My Fate” can be seen above. The clip was directed by Max Moore.

VIMIC, Jordison explained, was born from the blueprint of his previous band SCAR THE MARTYR, which he worked on during his off time from SLIPKNOT. After his exit from SLIPKNOT, he took some time to think about what he wanted to do with his music career going forward.

“Basically, [after] my departure from SLIPKNOT, [I was] readjusting what I wanted to do musically with the rest of my career, and just kind of reforming my thoughts on what I wanted to do, I decided that I really wanted to start fresh, man,” he told SiriusXM‘s Jose Mangin.

“I did not want to keep rehashing some old ideas and stuff like that. I’m, like, if I’m gonna keep going, I really wanna just break loose and I just wanna wipe the slate clean and start fresh. So I renamed the band and I got a new singer and I got a new keyboard player. There’s three other members that still exist from the SCAR THE MARTYR lineup.”

VIMIC is:

Joey Jordison – drums, percussion
Jed Simon – guitar, backing vocals
Kyle Konkiel – bass, backing vocals
Matthew Tarach – keyboards
Kalen Chase Musmecci – lead vocals
