With the two bands recently selling out multiple shows together across Europe, Grammy-nominated rock bands Stone Sour and Papa Roach will head out on a U.S. co-headline tour beginning January 20, 2013 in Bethlehem, PA. Stone Sour, who just wrapped up a tour across five continents, will close out every show.
Stone Sour had the #1 Active Rock track in the country for two weeks in a row with “Absolute Zero” which Billboard magazine calls “A ruthless hard rocker, the track pummels the listener in the gut…” They released House of Gold & Bones Part 1, the first installment of their two album series, House of Gold & Bones, on Roadrunner Records, October 22, 2012; it debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 album charts. House of Gold & Bones Part 2 will be released spring 2013. Recorded at Sound Farm Studios just outside of the band’s native Des Moines, Iowa with producer David Bottrill (Tool, Muse) at the helm, the album has met with early rave reviews worldwide: “…by far the most accomplished album of Stone Sour’s career. Depth, emotion and spirit seem to infuse everything. 2013 has ‘Stone Sour’ written all over it.” – 4Ks – KERRANG! (UK)
The gold-selling Iowa hard rock outfit has sold over four million albums worldwide over the course of three full-length releases. Their self-titled debut and sophomore effort Come What(ever) May both were certified Gold, while 2010’s Audio Secrecy debuted at #6 on the Billboard Top 200. Their arsenal includes “Absolute Zero”, as well as previous number one singles “Through Glass,” “Say You’ll Haunt Me” and “Bother”.
Stone Sour singer, songwriter and lyricist Corey Taylor, himself a bestselling author courtesy of last year’s Seven Deadly Sins, wrote the lyrics for the 23 tracks that make up House of Gold & Bones which follows the compelling story of a character created by Taylor. Music is just one of the mediums used to tell the story; Corey Taylor recently revealed details of the new project with Dark Horse Comics, House of Gold & Bones which follows, and expands on, the story contained within the albums. With stunning covers from Jason Shawn Alexander (Empty Zone, Batman, Spider-Man), this limited four-issue series marks Corey Taylor’s debut in the comics genre.
