Slipknot ‘undecided on the group’s future’

Guitarist Jim Root reveals reuniting is 'the furthest thing from our mind'

Slipknot‘s Jim Root has revealed that, following the death of bassist Paul Gray in May, the future of the group is undecided.

In an interview with SonisphereFestivals.com, the guitarist admitted that it was “the furthest thing from our mind”.

“There’s going to be a big healing process that needs to happen before we even think about whether or not Slipknot will continue,” he said. “And right now that’s the furthest thing from our mind.”

He added: “Right now we are just grieving or trying to find time to grieve anyway for the fact that our bro’s gone. It’s weird because some days I don’t even think it’s real, so that one’s not going to make sense for a while.”

Set to release a new Stone Sour album called ‘Audio Secrecy’ with Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor on September 6, Root explained that it would be “probably two years at least” before the group got back together.
