Shop Now in our merch shop

Former Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg has wasted no time finding a new gig, as he’ll be playing drums for a reunited Infectious Grooves on the funk metal band’s 2024 concert dates.

Just three months after Weinberg was let go from Slipknot — leaving him “heartbroken and blindsided” — the drummer is joining a rhythm section that includes Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo, who formed Infectious Grooves in 1991 alongside his then-Suicidal Tendencies bandmate Mike Muir.

So far, only two US shows in Garden Grove, California, on March 23rd and 24th at the Garden Grove Amphitheater have been announced — plus a string of Australian dates in late March and early April. Tickets to the US dates are available via StubHub, where your purchase is 100% guaranteed through StubHub’s Fan Protect program. The Australian shows can be purchased at this location.

Weinberg was tapped to play drums for Infectious Grooves — who are returning to the stage for the first time since a one-off show in 2019 — due to longtime drummer Brooks Wackerman’s commitments in Avenged Sevenfold.

“IG is beyond stoked and honored to be able to have the incredible Jay Weinberg to be the driving force as he beats the funk out of the drums on this run!” posted Muir and company on Suicidal Tendencies’ Instagram.

Added Weinberg [via Blabbermouth]: “It’s an absolute honor to play with the legendary Infectious Grooves on this incredibly exciting Australian tour! Playing with some of my favorite musicians, in one of the most beautiful countries, for some of the greatest fans of heavy music in the world…I couldn’t be more thrilled to get started. See you all soon!”

In addition to singer Muir, bassist Trujillo, and drummer Weinberg, Infectious Grooves’ 2024 lineup includes guitarists Dean Pleasants (Suicidal Tendencies) and Dave Kushner (ex-Velvet Revolver).
