Slipknot’s Sid Wilson Announces 2019 Solo Album ‘Sexcapades of the Hopeless Robotic Vol. 2′
Slipknot DJ Sid Wilson has announced that his new solo album, ∫∑x©∆p∆D∑∫ øƒ †h3 høP∑£3∫∫ ®øbø†¡¢ vol2 (Sexcapades of the Hopeless Robotic Vol. 2), will be out on Dec. 13 later this year.
For the masked DJ, the album in a continuation of last year's solo album, ∫∑x©∆p∆D∑∫ øƒ †h3 høP∑£3∫∫ ®øbø†¡¢, which was his first full length effort as a solo artist since debuting with a pair of records in 2011. The first ∫∑x©∆p∆D∑∫ installment was a lo-fi rap effort, leaning on minimalist beats and chilling electronics to perpetuate a dark atmosphere across its 50-minute runtime.
The teaser clip, heard below on Wilson's Instagram page, comes off a bit brighter than the tracks on the past album, with some watery digital effects aiding the tender, auto-tuned vocals from Wilson. The DJ also listed the names of guest artists who appear on the album, which includes Killah Priest, Rome Fortune, DJ Q*bert, Bizzythowed, Deewillalien, Sluggo and Arius.
Of course, 2019 has already been a massive year for Wilson, who spent much of the year on the road with Slipknot before and after the release of their sixth album, We Are Not Your Kind, which came out in the summer. There's more ahead with a 2020 European tour with Behemoth on the books and this next solo effort will wind down 2019.
