In The Now Magazine recently conducted an interview with Corey Taylor of STONE SOUR. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube below.
“House Of Gold Bones – Part 2”, the second part of STONE SOUR‘s two-album series, “House of Gold Bones”, sold 35,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 10 on The Billboard 200 chart. The record arrived in stores on April 9 via Roadrunner
STONE SOUR‘s previous album, “House Of Gold Bones – Part 1”, opened with 31,000 units to enter the chart at No. 7.
The band’s third CD, “Audio Secrecy”, opened with 46,000 units back in September 2010 to debut at No. 6.
The group’s sophomore effort, “Come What(ever) May” (2006), moved 81,000 units in the U.S. its first week out — triple what STONE SOUR‘s gold-selling debut album (2002) shifted its first week.
The “House Of Gold Bones” albums were recorded at Sound Farm Studios just outside of the band’s native Des Moines, Iowa with producer David Bottrill (TOOL, MUSE) at the helm.
STONE SOUR has issued a new music video for “Do Me A Favor”, the first official single from “House Of Gold Bones – Part 2”. A four-issue comic book series adapted from Taylor‘s story is coming out this spring, with the first issue arriving on shelves on April 17.
The official synopsis for the comic book reads, “Trapped in an alternate reality, the Human must make his way to the House of Gold Bones as he is chased by a crazed mob and taunted by mysterious ally Allen. What the Human discovers on his journey will be his salvation . . . or his destruction.”
The second issue of the comic will arrive on May 22.
