Stone Sour is now streaming its new album, House Of Gold And Bones, Part 2, in its entirety at the band's website. The disc is the second half of a two-record conceptual project based on a short story by singer Corey Taylor. Part 1 arrived last fall, with Part 2 due out on April 9th. We asked Taylor if, now that it's done, taking on such a huge project ever seemed daunting: "Honestly, I mean, looking back on it, it seemed like a lot at the time, but I'm proud of the fact that we really rose to the challenge of making something this monumental -- and not only accomplished it, but really surpassed everything that we were hoping for. I think this is our benchmark as a band."
- A four-issue comic book series adapted from Taylor's story will come out this spring, with the first issue arriving on shelves on April 17th.
- Stone Sour issued a new music video last week for "Do Me A Favor," the first official single from House Of Gold And Bones, Part 2.
- Stone Sour and In This Moment have just kicked off the first-ever Road To The Golden Gods tour, which will lead up to the Golden Gods Awards on May 2nd in Los Angeles. The trek stops in Boston on Wednesday night (April 3rd).
