STONE SOUR performed its new single, “Do Me A Favor”, live for the first time this past Tuesday, Febraury 12 at Rialto Theatre in Tucson, Arizona. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.
“Do Me A Favor” is the first single from “House Of Gold Bones – Part 2”, the second part of STONE SOUR‘s two-album series, “House of Gold Bones”, which will be released on April 9 via Roadrunner Records. The 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.
“Do Me A Favor”, was made available digitally on February 12. The video for the track will be directed by Phil Mucci, whose video for HIGH ON FIRE‘s “Fertile Green” was named best video of 2012 by Revolver. Singer Corey Taylor gave The Pulse Of Radio a preview of what to expect from the song. “It’s quite aggressive, and actually the label asked me if I would go in and tame stuff down and I was like, ‘No.’ I’m not doing that,” he said. “This is going out the way it is and I’m not gonna touch it up. I’m not gonna have people looking for a song that doesn’t exist. This is the way it is on the album, that’s the way it’s going to be when we put it out to radio.”
