Grammy-nominated rock powerhouse Stone Sour is set to release a special, enhanced edition of their Gold-Certified album Come What(ever) May on Roadrunner Records on June 26. The special edition is jam-packed with extensive bonus material. The audio portion boasts six previously unreleased and unavailable tracks, including an acoustic cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game,” recorded live for a Canadian radio performance earlier this year. The bonus DVD features all four music videos from Come What(ever) May: “30/30-150,” “Through Glass,” “sillyworld” and the band’s latest “Made of Scars.” In addition, the DVD includes a never-before-seen full concert performance. Filmed in October 2006 in Moscow at the RAMP awards, the concert documents Stone Sour’s first and only visit to Russia.

“Now before all of you fans get upset about a re-release, (because I know how you are), let me just say that I am an avid music fan and a record collector. That's why, when the decision was made to release a special edition, we knew that it had to be just that: special,” says guitarist Josh Rand. “We added everything we could possibly get our hands on, including an entire show from Russia, making it only the greatest special edition ever! You guys are gonna love it!”

Officially RIAA Gold-certified and showing no signs of slowing down, Come What(ever) May has achieved immense success since its 2006 release. The album debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200. “30/30-150” was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Metal Performance. The hit single “Through Glass” reached #1 at Active and Mainstream Rock radio, #2 at Alternative Radio with 22 weeks in the Top 10, #12 at Hot A/C. It was the #1 video on MTV2’s T-Minus Rock Countdown, ranking it among the most played videos in 2006. The politically charged “sillyworld” turned heads with its video assault on corporate America, was top 5 at Active and Mainstream rock and top 20 at Alternative Radio. The current single, “Made of Scars” was #3 most added the week before add date, and debuted at # 34 with a bullet on Active Rock charts this week. Filmed last month, its video captures the band playing to a sold out crowd at the height of their U.S. tour, encapsulating a raw, vicious energy reminiscent of Rollins Band and Faith No More.

“I love impromptu. I love extemporaneous. I love spontaneous,” the band’s enigmatic frontman Corey Taylor says in Revolver’s current cover story. “With [Stone Sour] I can be myself and just do my thing, which is why I f***ing love it.”

Stone Sour wrapped up a sold-out U.S. headline tour in their hometown of Des Moines on May 4th and are currently touring Australia, with Japan and Europe to follow. The band plans to tour the States again in August.

Extemporaneous? This guy is such a c0ckl0rd. And what does he mean by "With [Stone Sour] I can be myself and just do my thing"? What is Slipknot? I hate it when someone in a band starts a side project that gets bigger and more mainstream than the main gig and they talk about their past bands with contempt. I think this d1ckwh1ffer should shut the hell up already. Everytime I read his outrageous interviews or whiny, inane lyrics, I keep thinking to myself that he has a thesaurus constantly by his side so he can sound smart at the drop of a hat, and he always seems to come off as this pompous self-righteous a$$master.

Aside from that, this is actually a pretty good album, but RoadRunner has this horrible habit of releasing eighteen different versions of one album to cash in on it. Hey, why make one version when all the die-hards will buy every different edition of the album? Imagine getting paid, not once from every sale, but once from three seperate sales! It's marketing genius, but the last time I heard, Corey disliked this kind of corporate jackoffery. If you ask me, which you probably don't, it sounds like the hardened-iron cookware cauldron is calling the stove-top water boiling unit obsidian in color.

Or for those who don't speak Taylor: It seems the pot is calling the kettle black.

yo CrawfordTexasJingoJango,
First off Stone Sour was his first band, Slipknot fired their orignal lead singer and replaced him with corey. and what he means by "With [Stone Sour] I can be myself and just do my thing" is exactlly that. He has repeatly stated that he loves playing with Slipknot, but he and Jim have never felt like it was truely "theirs" because they were not there from the beginning, and with Stone Sour he does.

Okay, ozzyfan, so Stone SOur was his first band, point taken. But this still doesn't explain when he joined Slipknot and latched on to the "fvck the mainstream" thing, and now that Slipknot's newest album is dog-ass and Stone Sour is the band making the waves, he doesn't seem to mind bending over for the good of the industry and abandoning the whole message of Slipknot. He's gone from "f*** it all, f*** this world, f*** everything that you stand for" to whoring himself to Roadrunner twice on one release. His motives don't exactly hold up, and he needs to decide if he's gonna be "f*** everyting" or getting f***ed by everything. If he chooses the latter, which it looks like he is, it makes everything Slipknot is look like a f***ing joke since he is pretty much acting like the exact opposite.

It's funny what a few dollars will do to someone.

And "rock powerhouse" is a pretty stupid thing to say. They're pretty metal, but for some reason, they are labeled as "rock" because the word "metal" doesn't really go over well on MTV and VH1.

f*** Corey Taylor.

I think its maturity actually that selling out on were he came from, he is at a completly different stage in his life. He isn't as interested in Slipknot because he would rather be the Star he is in Stone Sour where he has compete control of his band, he writes all the lyrics, and is more very versatile in the music of Stone Sour. i heard that Corey and Jim want to do another Stone Sour CD before returning to Slipknot. Slipknot made Corey Taylor, and he has not forgotten it, but he is really his original and true self in Stone Sour. While Corey was in Slipknot he was heavy into alcohol in between Stone Sour's Self Titled and Slipknot's Vol 3 he dopped the alcoholism completly, in 2005 he reunited with his father, and his children are growing older. Many of the other band members of Slipknot have side bands also. In 2008 Slipknot will reform as scheduled, put a new reocrd out Late early 2009 (Hopefully its as brutal as there past stuff) but then i think they will be done. I just feel that the balance is shifted, both Bands are excelent and i hope Corey can make them both work
