Corey Taylor and his band Slipknot haven't released an album since 2008's All Hope Is Gone, but the singer's been busy with his Sound City collaboration with Dave Grohl and his other band, Stone Sour. The Iowa rockers are almost ready with the second part of their House of Gold and Bones album series, and on the new track "Gravesend," Stone Sour rage like an inferno. Walls of distortion and pummeling, mid-tempo drums crash with Taylor's growls and barks, but within the chaos comes clarity: "I was only 18 when I finally let go," he sings.
House of Gold and Bones Part Two will be out April 9th on Roadrunner. Stone Sour begin touring the States on April 2nd at Portland, Maine's State Theatre and wrap up on May 18th at Columbus, Ohio's Crew Stadium at the Rock on the Range Festival; the following month, they go to Europe.
