The note is written "from a place of the deepest pain..."

Slipknot's Clown has posted a new note mourning the death of his youngest daughter.

The metal icons are set to release a new album this year, accompanied by a full international tour.

Tragically, Clown suffered a loss over the weekend, with his youngest daughter Gabrielle passing away.

In a note to fans he wrote "from a place of the deepest pain" before adding: "I have to inform all of you that my youngest daughter, Gabrielle, passed away yesterday – Saturday May 18th, 2019. She was 22 years old.”

He continued: "My family and I ask that our privacy be respected moving forward. Thank you. Much love, clown."
