We say "officially" because he's already talked about it in a Facebook post and in a recent interview, but today it's official. Joey Jordison's new band is coming, and they're called Scar The Martyr.

The band, also consisting of former Darkest Hour guitarist Kris Norris, former Strapping Young Lad guitarist Jed Simon, keyboardist Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails), and vocalist Henry Derek, has completed recording their debut album at Sound Farm Studios in Des Moines, IA with producer Rhys Fulber, who's previous credits include Fear Factory, Rob Zombie, Mindless Self Indulgence and more.

"With this project, I focused my efforts on writing for the better of the song,” says Jordison. “I wasn't worried about flash or persona… It's all about writing a good solid song. I'm writing music that people can grasp and hold on to…something that resonates. If you don't have that, then you have nothing."

Needless to say, I'm really excited to hear what the band sounds like. They posted the following video teaser on Facebook recently…

…But it's not enough! The band has signed a deal with Roadrunner Records and a release is expected this fall.
