The platinum chapter: Three Slipknot songs certified platinum 

Roadrunner RecordsAfter a week that could be charitably described as "eventful," here's some good news for Slipknot.

Three of the band's singles -- "Wait and Bleed" from 1999's Slipknot, "Before I Forget" from 2004's Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) and "Snuff" from 2008's All Hope Is Gone -- have all been certified platinum by the RIAA for one million units sold.

The songs are the first Slipknot tracks to earn platinum certification. The masked metallers have another song, 2014's "The Devil in I," that's been certified gold.

As for that eventful week, Slipknot announced on Monday that percussionist Chris Fehn was out of the group after he reportedly sued his now former band mates over a financial dispute. Frontman Corey Taylor later tweeted that Fehn "wrongfully accused" him of "stealing money."

Slipknot is expected to release a new album, the long-awaited follow-up to 2014's .5: The Gray Chapter, on August 9.
