Stone Sour Finish Recording New Album

STONE SOUR, the band featuring SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor and guitarist Jim Root, have completed the recording process for their sophomore album, tentatively titled "Come What May", at a Los Angeles studio with producer Nick Rasculinecz (FOO FIGHTERS, VELVET REVOLVER). "16 tracks were recorded and we're in the process of picking just how many will go on the album," guitarist Josh Rand writes on the band's web site. "We're hoping for a late summer release. We are so excited for you to hear this! From songs like '30/30-150', to 'Zzyzx Road', it's much more diverse and mature than the first record. Sonically, it's amazing!

"We are currently working on the U.S. tour schedule, and new merch. We will keep you posted as more info comes in.

"Onto stage two of the process: mixing! This will be handled by Randy Staub (METALLICA, HATEBREED) starting on the 10th of this month."

In a recent interview with Revolver magazine (web site), Taylor said about the recording process for the new CD, "The first record was really just us making music and laughing a lot and having a good time in a studio in Iowa. There were no real expectations. Now that we know we have an audience, it's way more crazy."

He continued, "It's priority No. 1 this year for Roadrunner [the band's record label], and they keep telling us, 'You've gotta stick to the schedule!' And then there's kids just fuckin' blowin' me up on the Internet, like, 'When's it coming out? When's it coming out?' I'm like, 'Wait, calm down — we just finished the fucking drum tracks, fer chrissakes!' but it's cool, you know? I thrive on the pressure, because it gets me going, and it gets me that much more psyched about it."

"This album's gonna be miles above the first one," promised Taylor. "Even with scratch guitar and really shitty scratch vocals, it already sounds powerful as fuck." Musically he describes it as "more melodic and darker than the first one. It's not goth rock, it's not fucking emo, it's not garage; it's fucking hard rock, man. It's good, heavy rock that's going to kick you in the face. Why would you want anything else?"

As for the disc's lyrical content, Taylor described it as a combination of "pain, pleasure, happiness, and grief. People keep asking me what the theme of the album is. Well, there is no theme, you know? If anything, the theme is life, because life is spontaneous and aggravating all at once. You never know what you're going to have to go through on a daily basis — you never know what life's gonna throw at you.

"There's a track we recorded, that I hope makes it on the album, that's basically a love song to my wife, thanking her for dragging me out of the fire and helping me get sober. I've never written anything like that before, but it was very important for me to tell the world not only how much she saved me, but how much she means to me."

Most memorable line yet.
I'm wondering what's forth-coming. Hopefully it's a good effort.
