Taylor recently revealed that STONE SOUR will release a concert DVD and cover songs EP in one package sometime before the end of the year. He also said in a recent interview that the next STONE SOUR album is likely to be recorded in 2012 and could end up being a concept record.

SLIPKNOT played several European festivals this past summer, its first shows since bassist Paul Gray died in May 2010, and will do a U.S. tour next year. But plans for a new album remain uncertain.
