| 2 February 2013 | Reply


New York, NY (February 1, 2013) – 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).

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.
