Grammy-nominated rock band Stone Sour will release House of Gold & Bones  Pt. 2, the second part of their two album series, House of Gold & Bones, on Roadrunner Records , April 9, 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, House of Gold & Bones Pt. 1 of 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).

stonesour-houseofgoldandbone2

House of Gold & Bones Pt. 2

The first single from House of Gold & Bones Pt. 2, “Do Me A Favor” will be available digitally on February 12, 2013; the video for “Do Me A Favor” will be directed by Phil Mucci whose video for “Fertile Green” from High On Fire was named best video of 2012 by Revolver Magazine.  The first single from House of Gold & Bones Pt. 1, “Absolute Zero”, raced up the charts to number one at Active and Mainstream Rock radio in just weeks.  Billboard Magazine called it “A ruthless hard rocker, the track pummels the listener in the gut…”

Stone Sour will be performing at the 2013 Revolver Magazine Golden Gods Awards May 2, 2013 in Los Angeles.  They are nominated for three awards – “Best Vocalist,” “Album of the Year” for House of Gold & Bones Pt. 1 and “Best Drummer” for Roy Mayorga.  Additionally Slipknot, lead singer Corey Taylor’s other band, was also nominated in two categories – “Best Live Band” and “Most Dedicated Fans.”

Taylor recently performed at Sundance as part of the Sound City Players, Dave Grohl’s band of musicians assembled to play the original music they created in his directorial debut documentary, Sound City.  Sound City recounts the history of the Van Nuys, CA recording studio where Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Neil Young and of course Nirvana and Slipknot recorded so many of their classic works. The film also explores the human element of playing and recording music, as Grohl invites Sound City veterans to create new, original songs using the hallowed Neve 8028 recording console that Grohl purchased from the decommissioned studio in 2011.

Music is just one of the mediums used to tell the House of Gold & Bones story, and Taylor recently revealed details of the new project with Dark Horse Comics of the same name which follows, and expands on, the story contained within the albums.  With stunning covers from Jason Shawn Alexander (Empty Zone, Batman, Abe Sapien), this limited four-issue series marks Taylor’s debut in the comics genre.  The first of the series will be out on April 17, 2013.

With the two bands currently 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 in January 2013.  Stone Sour, currently in the midst of a tour across five continents, will close out every show.

Stone Sour has the #1 Active Rock track in the country for the second week in a row with “Absolute Zero” which Billboardmagazine 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”.

Papa Roach

Papa Roach’s current single, “Where Did the Angels Go” is the #1 most added Active Rock track for 2 weeks in a row, following the 11 top 10 hits in their career. The band’s most recent album, The Connection (Eleven Seven Music, October 2012), which Revolver proclaims “Is a fist-pumping return to form,” and adds the tracks are “grittier and crunchier, akin to those on their breakout albums,” debuted top 20 on the Billboard Top 200. The album’s lead single “Still Swingin” peaked at #3 on the Active rock chart the current single, “Angels” is the #1 most added single at Active rock for the second week in a row.  “Still Swingin’” was also chosen as #6 on Kerrang’s 250 Greatest Rock Songs of 2012. Known for their electrifying and explosive live shows, Papa Roach have become the common denominator for some of the most successful rock tours in recent years and have critics worldwide hailing them as “the best live band.” In August ’10, Papa Roach released Time For Annihilation…On the Record and On the Road (Eleven Seven Music), which debuted as the #1 Independent Rock, #23 Top 200, #4 Hard Rock and #5 Alternative Album on Billboard’s charts. The album’s singles “Kick in the Teeth” and “Burn” both remained in the Top 5 at the active rock radio format for over 8 weeks straight, joining eight additional Top 10 hits throughout the band’s career with songs such as “Last Resort” and “Scars.” With more than 10 years of success including highlights such as 10 million in album sales worldwide, two Grammy nominations, an MTV VMA nomination, 11 Top 10 rock hits, seven Top 10 alternative hits, the Most Played Alternative Song of the Decade (BDS), over 260 million online plays, 6.3 million combined fans, a hosting gig on MTV’s Scarred and countless sold out shows.

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.

Stone Sour’s Corey Taylor To Pen Comic Book Companion To ‘House Of Gold & Bones’

Stone Sour’s Corey Taylor To Pen Comic Book Companion To ‘House Of Gold & Bones’

Corey Taylor

Grammy-nominated musician and best-selling author Corey Taylor, the lyricist and lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour, is setting down the microphone and putting ink and images to paper in his new project with Dark Horse Comics—House of Gold & Bones!

With stunning covers from Jason Shawn Alexander (Empty Zone, Abe Sapien), this limited four-issue series marks Corey Taylor’s debut in the comics genre. “I’ve been a die-hard fan of comics, on every level, my entire life,” says Taylor. “This has been a dream of mine for years now, and this project was tailor made for a comic, no pun intended. I couldn’t have picked a better company than Dark Horse to make this a reality. I have loved several of their titles for many years, going back to ’92. If we can get this crazy world out of my head and onto the canvas, it’ll be the best thing I’ve ever attempted. And with Dark Horse, I have every confidence that’s exactly what we’ll do.”

House of Gold & Bones is a unique multimedia experience which includes two Stone Sour albums via Roadrunner Records (release date for Part 1 is October 22, with Part 2 following in 2013), videos, online presence, creative album packaging, live shows, and now the Dark Horse Comics series. Each element will follow and expand on the story. Taylor, already an internationally best-selling author, courtesy of last year’s Seven Deadly Sins, wrote the story—as well as the lyrics for the twenty-three tracks that make up the two albums—as a linear story line. The Stone Sour songs set the tone and follow the action, with Taylor’s House of Gold & Bones comic expanding on the story.

Corey Taylor will be signing in the Dark Horse Booth at New York Comic Con Saturday, October 12 at 3 p.m.!

Stone Sour’s House of Gold & Bones Part 1 album is on sale October 22, 2012!

House of Gold & Bones issue #1 is on sale April 17, 2013!

Stone Sour Reveal Tracklist, Cover Art And Release Date For “House of Gold & Bones”

Stone Sour Reveal Tracklist, Cover Art And Release Date For “House of Gold & Bones”

Stone Sour

Grammy-nominated rockers Stone Sour will release the first installment of their double album House of Gold & Bones Part 1 on Roadrunner Records on October 23, 2012. The second installment will be released in 2013. The album was recorded at Sound Farm Studios just outside of the band’s native Des Moines, Iowa with producer David Bottrill (Tool, Muse, Staind) at the helm.

The band is sharing the first two tracks from Part 1, titled “Gone Sovereign” and “Absolute Zero,” at www.houseofgoldandbones.com. Both tracks embody and encompass everything that Stone Sour is: a forward-thinking rock band that is able to mesh maelstrom with melody, brains with brawn and the head with the heart.

Guitarist Josh Rand states, “House of Gold & Bones takes everything that’s great about this band and amplifies it. The riffs, the lyrics, the grooves and the songs are like Stone Sour times 10. There’s also heavy stuff that’s like nothing we’ve ever done before . It’s dark as hell and a complete experience from the first track to the last.”

Singer, songwriter and lyricist Corey Taylor, himself a bestselling author courtesy of last year’s Seven Deadly Sins, wrote the lyrics for the 24 tracks that make up House of Gold & Bones as a linear storyline. It tells the compelling tale of a character created by Taylor. The release of the first two tracks from Part 1 is the first step in unveiling a journey which has only just begun and will continue over the next year.  Music is just one of the media the band uses to tell the story.

Stone Sour have also confirmed the first leg of a massive global tour push to support House of Gold & Bones, playing shows on five continents, with many more to come.  Says Taylor, “It’s going to be awesome to bring the House of Gold & Bones to the fans live. We’re all psyched to come to Japan and South America right away as well; they’re some of the best fans in the world! We gave people a taste of Part 1, now we’re going to bring them the best Stone Sour show they’ve ever seen. Get ready: It begins soon…”

More information about House of Gold & Bones will be revealed as the project unfolds.  The track listing for Part 1 is below.
