Gray passed away in 2010 of an overdose.

As for Slipknot’s future, the band could release its upcoming (and highly anticipated) album as early as next year, Taylor told Billboard. He does clarify that 2019 is an ambitious goal, but he says tons of new music has been written with Taylor’s lyrics set to most of them. Here's hoping for 2019!
