STONE SOUR has tapped Phil Mucci (KORN, HIGH ON FIRE, OPETH, PIG DESTROYER) to direct the video for the song “Do Me A Favor”. The track, which is scheduled to go for radio adds on February 12, is the first single from “House Of Gold Bones – Part 2”, the second part of the band’s double-record concept album, which will be issued in April. Although an exact release date has still not been confirmed, the disc will now arrive that month along with the first of a four-issue comic book series based on the album’s storyline.
“House Of Gold Bones – Part 1” ended in a cliffhanger with the story’s main character, called the Human, in the clutches of the villains. Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio that Part 2 picks up right where the story left off. “Part 2 opens up in a very dark spot with a song called ‘Red City’, which is fantastic,” he said. “It’s probably one of my favorite songs we’ve ever written. And it basically reveals that the Human is still kind of being held. It’s escape or die, basically, at that point. So yeah, there’s gonna be a lot of payoff on Part 2, let’s put it that way.”
Taylor told Billboard.com recently that the group is planning a world tour in 2014 during which they will spend two nights in each city and perform both halves of its “House Of Gold Bones” double album in their entirety.
“House Of Gold Bones – Part 1” was released this past fall. The first single from Part 1, “Absolute Zero”, recently topped the Active Rock radio chart.
STONE SOUR and PAPA ROACH will team up for a co-headlining U.S. tour that will kick off on January 20 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
