Stone Sour to Go All Out on Next Album
Corey Taylor is one busy dude. Not only is he doing double duty between Slipknot and Stone Sour, but he also wrote a book and will tour in the U.S. and Canada beginning on November 14th. This solo jaunt will be called “An Evening With Corey Taylor,” and will feature Corey doing both spoken-word and acoustic performances, along with question-and-answer sessions with the audience. He will also read from his new book (memoir), Seven Deadly Sins – Settling The Argument Between Born Bad And Damaged Good. For those of you who hate to read, which if you do your won’t be reading this, there is an audio book version of the book that came out on September 26th. It looks as if 2012 will be just as busy, if not busier.
The official word is that Slipknot will tour in 2012 and put our another alum (the first without bassist Paul Gray). Corey recently told Billboard.com that in between Slipknot tours he will get Stone Sour into the studio to work on what he says to be the biggest album yet:
It’s a pretty grandiose idea that I’ve been kind of chewing on for a long time, and if we can pull it off, it’ll be really, really cool. It’ll probably be the biggest thing that we’ve ever done in our career. Artistically, visually, like, I mean, we’re gonna swing for the fences with this one, and it’s gonna put a lot of people in their place.
The new Stone Sour album will be that bands fourth album, the follow up to 2010′s Audio Secrecy.The band also has plans to release a concert DVD and cover songs EP in one package.
