Corey Taylor has said that the chances of Slipknot recording a new album without late bassist Paul Gray are slim.

The singer was speaking in Australia, where he is on tour with his other outfit Stone Sour, supporting Avenged Sevenfold.

Speaking to Undercover.com.au about the possibility of new Slipknot material, Taylor said: "I don't see it happening. And if it does, it'll be way way down the line."

Gray died of a suspected overdose last June.

He added that after the death of the bassist, "There is a such a huge piece missing now. A piece so huge that the fans can't even understand." He described Gray as the band's "lynchpin" and said it would be very hard to imagine recording without him.

Slipknot are confirmed to headline this summer's Sonisphere Festival at Knebworth on July 10, and will play several other European festivals.

Taylor also refused to confirmed or deny reports that he is the new singer of Velvet Revolver. Responding to a question about whether he would be joining the band he said: "To be continued. That's all I can say right now."

Taylor also announced that he is to release an autobiography on July 12. He's named it ‘The Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad And Damaged Good.
