Slipknot guitarist Jim Root has posted the first “official” photo confirming that the new Slipknot album is on the way.

Root posted the below photo on his Instagram feed with the caption: ”Sig love on the API #fenderguitar #work #thecoffeesucks #slipknot2014

That last tag strongly suggests that, whatever has happened with drummer Joey Jordison leaving the fold, we will get a new Slipknot album in 2014, backing up Corey Taylor’s recent claim that “great things are coming.”

It was announced shortly before Christmas that Joey Jordison had left the Slipknot fold, with Joey rebutting the notion that he “quit” shortly after.

“To my fans, friends, and associates… I would like to start the New Year by addressing the recent rumours and speculation regarding my departure from Slipknot,” commented the drummer in a statement posted online.

“I want to make it very clear that I DID NOT QUIT SLIPKNOT. This band has been my life for the last 18 years, and I would never abandon it, or my fans.

“This news has shocked and blindsided me as much as it has all of you.

“While there is much I would like to say, I must remain silent to further details at this time. I would like to thank you all for your unwavering love and support, and wish everyone a very happy and healthy new year.”

Speaking after the band statement that confirmed Jordison’s departure for “personal reasons” last month, frontman Corey Taylor said: “Legally and respectfully, I can’t say a lot about it. We’re trying to protect him, protect us – just making sure we do everything right.”

He later reported anyone who believed the band were collapsing was “greatly and sadly mistaken.”

Jordison recently completed a UK tour with his latest band Scar The Martyr.
