Stone Sour: "We don't consider ‘rock’ a dirty word"
Apparently rock fans are going to “freak out” when they hear the new album. In a good way, or bad way?
A lot hashappened in the four years since Stone Sour’s last album. Jim Root left the band in a reportedly not-so-amicable manner, Corey Taylor released The Gray Chapter with Slipknot, and Christian Martucci and Johnny Chow were promoted from touring musicians to full-time band members. On Stone Sour’s next album, Hydrograd, due out this month, they explore classic rock influences and even throw in some singalong choruses. Taylor and guitarist Josh Rand elaborate on the new chapter.
