Slipknot‘s Sid Wilson (#0) recently spoke to Billboard.com about his upcoming solo album and the future of Slipknot in the wake of bassist Paul Gray‘s untimely death.

Write Billboard, “Among the songs from the album that Wilson and his band are playing are the planned first single, the socially conscious ‘Nervous Central.’ ‘Flat Lace,’ which Wilson wrote five years ago for Slipknot bassist Paul Gray, who died of an accidental drug overdose on May 24, is also particularly haunting.

“‘It’s just about the different struggles in his life,’ Wilson says, ‘and it was just my way of letting him know that I was always there for him and that I was aware of the things he had to deal with. It’s definitely difficult (to sing). It’s hard for me to even talk about it.’

“Wilson says that Slipknot, in fact, has not spoken much about its future at all in the wake of Gray’s death. ‘Before the incident everyone was getting ready to take a break from Slipknot and go work on their side projects for a little bit,’ says Wilson, with frontman Corey Taylor and James Root getting ready to release a new Stone Sour album and drummer Joey Jordison fronting Murderdolls after touring with Rob Zombie. ‘Now we’re trying to move forward and keep with the plans that we had prior to the incident.’

“But Wilson sounds hopeful that Slipknot will at some point reconvene and make a follow-up to 2008′s ‘All Hope is Gone.’

“‘When the time comes, forces will bring us back together again,’ he explains. ‘But as of now I can’t even predict when that will happen. It’s a magical thing, and you can’t predict magic. It just summons itself and pulls you all together.’”

Slipknot will release a brand new live DVD of their time at Download 2009 entitled (sic)nesses on September 28th. The 2-disc set captures Slipknot‘s crushing live performance, and marks one of their last with late bassist Paul Gray. The second disc in the set is a documentary filmed by Clown (Shawn Crahan). Pre-orders are available now at this location.
