Joey Jordison's 'Scar the Martyr' Releases In-Studio Teaser and Debut Tour Dates

It was only a matter of weeks ago that the news dropped of Joey Jordison having a new side project, Scar the Martyr, which electrified the metal world with the excitement of Joey being back behind the kit and forming what is almost-guaranteed to be another amazing music project.  Over the course of the last month, Joey and his new counterparts have been awfully busy locked inside their recording studio, laying down the tracks for what is to become the band’s debut album, which is slated to arrive this fall.  With the anticipation building throughout their already budding and buzzing fan base, Scar the Martyr released an in-studio look inside the recording process to the debut album, which gives the band’s newfound fans even more insight to this newfound band.  This in-studio look can be found below.

Already receiving thousands of views in only a few hours time, Scar the Martyr’s “In-studio teaser” serves as just that- a massive teaser.  For Slipknot fans, and drummers especially, this tease will ring especially true around the .15 second mark of the video, as the camera focuses on Pearl artist, Joey Jordison, zooming around his massive Reference Pure drum kit, showing off his countless chops and fills, blistering speed, and quick and fluent blast beats.  For this recording session, Joey turned to Pearl’s Reference Pure line of drums, opting for the thin-plied version of Pearl’s highly innovative Reference Series line to achieve more open and resonant tones throughout his entire kit.  Joey’s full specs are as follow:
