Stone Sour Working On New Material

Stone Sour lead singer Corey Taylor has confirmed in an interview with Rock Tube that the band is already working on material for its next LP and that it’s headed in a different direction than this year’s Hydrograd. Taylor explained, “We’ve already been writing some stuff, and it’s actually kind of . . . It looks like it’s darker — (there are) some really cool, darker ideas.” But Taylor cautioned that it’s still too early to tell which direction Stone Sour’s next disc will take, adding, “It’s one thing to say ‘dark,’ but then you never know. You could say, ‘Oh, yeah, it’s gonna be dark as s**t,’ and then you get in the studio and it’s not dark at all. You’re just, like, ‘Well, what the hell was I talking about?’ You just kind of have to go with the music. You never know.” Taylor said last summer that he wanted Hydrograd to be a “good, kick-ass hard rock album,” saying, “We just wanted to make a feel-good album . . . one of those kind of throwback albums that you just put on and there doesn’t have to be an overall message.” The singer told Rock Tube that he was pleased with how Hydrograd turned out, remarking, “Not only do I think it’s the best work that we’ve ever done, but I also feel like we could put this album up against anybody, and not only would we stand our own, we would beat a lot of the s**t that’s out there.” Hydrograd was released at the end of June and featured the chart-topping rock radio hit “Song #3.” The latest track issued from the disc is “Rose Red Violent Blue.” Stone Sour recently announced a new North American tour for early 2018. The new dates include a co-headline tour with Halestorm that’s set to commence on January 27th in Abbotsford, British Columbia, followed by a string of headline shows with support from Red Sun Rising, which get underway on February 16th in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
