Man Convicted Of Murder After Korn Concert Death

Michael Scott Axley has been convicted of felony murder and aggravated assault charges after he punched and killed Andy Richardson at the Family Values Tour stop in Atlanta, GA last year.

The victim, 30-year-old Andy Richardson of Atlanta, was attending a concert by KORN at the HiFi Buys Ampitheater. Atlanta police homicide Detective Brett Zimbrick testified at the hearing that Richardson was knocked to the ground by a punch from Axley, fatally hit his head on the concrete floor at the former Lakewood Ampitheater and was punched twice more as he lay unconscious.

UPDATE: As pointed out by moko in the comments (and confirmed by other sources), Axley was indicted on the charges of felony murder and aggravated assault, not convicted.

Corey Taylor Comments On New Single, "Sillyworld"

Launch Radio Networks reports: Stone Sour's latest single, "Sillyworld", is one of the most experimental songs on the band's second album, Come What(ever) May, with fans saying it sounds a little like Pink Floyd. Lead singer Corey Taylor told Launch that he's heard the Floyd comparison and several more. "It's actually, you know, one of four bands that that song gets compared to, you know," he said. "There's the obvious Pink Floyd comparison. There's The Beatles. Somebody actually compared it to King Crimson, which I was like, 'What?' (laughs) But it was a song that Jim (Root, guitarist) brought in, that I immediately reacted to. I was like, 'Oh, I love this.' And it just became this really sweet, kind of old-school rock."

As previously reported, Stone Sour is headlining the latest installment of the Jagermeister Music Tour.

Cristina Scabbia Talks About The Jagermeister Tour

LACUNA COIL will embark on the latest installment of the Jägermeister Music Tour this spring alongside Stone Sour and Shadows Fall. The trek, which kicks off on March 23rd and runs through early May, is the group's fourth U.S. run in support of their Karmacode album. They will be swapping out the direct support slot with Shadows Fall in certain markets, so please see the tour section for the itinerary and full breakdown.

"It's about time!" says Scabbia about being part of the Jager Tour. "It'll be a blast, and you guys can't miss it cause it's going to be the tour of the year! See you all there... spread the word...and horns up, my friends."

The tour also coincides with the launch of their new single for the track "Within Me." This is the fourth single from Karmacode, and a new video for the track will be shot in Italy early next month.

LACUNA COIL wrapped up 2006 with a U.S. tour as direct support to In Flames with The Sword and Seemless in the support slots. This was preceded by a highly successful run on the annual Blackest of the Black tour alongside the legendary Danzig, labelmates The Haunted, Belphegor and Asesino. Other numerous highlights of this past year included a main stage Ozzfest slot, a sold-out tour with Rob Zombie, a performance on ABC-TV's Jimmy Kimmel Live and a Top 30 Active Rock hit single, "Our Truth."

Stone Sour to Headline Spring Jagermeister Tour

Stone Sour will lead the charge on this year's Jägermeister Music Tour - their first headlining tour in support of latest album Come What(ever) May, and featuring special guests Lacuna Coil and Shadows Fall. The Tour kicks off on March 23rd in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Fresh from their sold-out European/UK tour, Grammy-nominated Stone Sour is primed to capture the attention and the hearts of the rock ‘n roll masses. The band is a multi-faceted hard rock force of nature whose twisting melodies run the gamut of emotions. Stone Sour were the band to see at last summer's Family Values Tour where they performed with Korn and The Deftones, and, more recently, the band toured with Disturbed to rave reviews. Come What(ever) May is already certified gold and on its way to platinum.

"This has been something we have been looking forward to for a very long time." says Stone Sour vocalist, Corey Taylor. "Having done this tour before, I can honestly say it's like nothing I've ever experienced. It's our time, and we're coming for you."

The Tour will rock through May and each show will be rounded out with a local Jägermeister band. Going on six years, the Jägermeister Music Tour is bigger and bolder than ever, becoming THE hard rock show to see. Produced by Live Nation, past Tours have brought Disturbed, Slayer, Slipknot, Staind and Hatebreed, to the masses, and now the Tour continues its hard rock charge. More...

Taylor, Root Felt Like Hired Hands In Slipknot

Kyle Munson of DesMoinesRegister.com recently conducted an interview with vocalist Corey Taylor (STONE SOUR, SLIPKNOT). A few excerpts from the chat follow:

DesMoinesRegister.com: You do seem to increasingly have found your songwriting voice with STONE SOUR, with songs such as "Through Glass" that bring in a broader pop audience.

Corey: When I joined SLIPKNOT, I joined a band that had existed before and there were a lot of things that I had to kind of adjust to. Even over the years, me and Jim — we talked about this — we always felt like we were kind of the hired guns, even though, you know, we helped build this to where it was, it never felt like it was our baby. And rightly so, because it's been Shawn's and Paul's and Joey's from day one. So, you know, we've contributed and we've helped and it's our life and it's what we love to do. But at the same time STONE SOUR has always felt more of like our thing, you know. It's always felt more of, like, this is our family, this is where we really get to do the stuff, like anything that we want to do. But it is what it is — you can go either way with it, really. There's a lot of stuff that I can't do with STONE SOUR that I can do with SLIPKNOT, and I love the fact that I have that freedom.

Stone Sour's "Through Glass" Earns #1 Single

Stone Sour's hit single "Through Glass" recently took the #1 spot on the Mainstream and Active Rock Charts, marking the first #1 single in the band's career.

The song bests the #4 charting position the band reached with "Bother," from their Gold-selling, self-titled debut album. "Through Glass" is currently #7 on the Modern Rock Chart, while the video was officially added to MTV2. The track is the first single off the band's latest album, Come What(ever) May, which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart when it was released on August 1st.

Proclaimed by Blender Magazine as an album that "makes anger and angst seem almost fun," Come What(ever) May moved 80,786 units its first week out (triple the first album) and has sold over 191,000 units to date. Produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Velvet Revolver), the album is an exercise in dynamics: tight, crisp, and full of rowdy rockers and melodic numbers.

Stone Sour is currently on the Family Values Tour with Korn, The Deftones, Flyleaf and others. This winter they will embark on the Music As A Weapon Tour with Disturbed.
