Roadrunner recording group Stone Sour will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their classic second album, “COME WHAT(EVER) MAY,” with an extraordinary new Deluxe Edition. “COME WHAT(EVER) MAY: DELUXE 10th ANNIVERSARY EDITION” will be available Friday, December 16th via digital download, streaming services, and 2 LP black and gold mixed vinyl – the RIAA gold certified, GRAMMY® Award-nominated collection’s first ever vinyl release.
Pre-orders for “COME WHAT(EVER) MAY: DELUXE 10th ANNIVERSARY EDITION” are available now at Stone Sour’s Official Webstore, including a number of exclusive limited edition bundles.
“COME WHAT(EVER) MAY: DELUXE 10th ANNIVERSARY EDITION” is heralded by previously unreleased acoustic version of “Zzyzx Rd.,” streaming now at www.stonesour.com and the band’s official YouTube channel.
“COME WHAT(EVER) MAY: DELUXE 10th ANNIVERSARY EDITION” has been remastered and appended by an array of bonus material (see tracklisting below). The album is now joined by an array of rare tracks, B-sides, and more, including never-before-heard versions of “Through Glass,” “Zzyzx Rd.,” and “Cardiff,” as well as an electrifying acoustic cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses.”
Stone Sour unleashed their eponymous debut album in 2002 and was immediately confirmed as one of the most popular and significant hard rock outfits of the 21stcentury. “STONE SOUR” earned RIAA gold certification while singles “Get Inside” and “Inhale” each received GRAMMY® Award nominations for “Best Metal Performance.”
“COME WHAT(EVER) MAY” followed in 2006 and proved an even greater accomplishment with a top 5 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 and a #1 entry ontoBillboard’s “Rock Albums” chart. The acclaimed album spawned still another GRAMMY®-nominated single in “30/30-150” on its own way to RIAA gold certification.
Stone Sour’s best selling album to date, “COME WHAT(EVER) MAY” unleashed a series of rock radio classics, including “Sillyworld,” “Made of Scars,” the #1 hit, “Through Glass,” which spent seven weeks atop Billboard’s “Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks” while also reaching #2 on “Alternative Songs” and the top 40 on the overall “Hot 100.” The song’s companion video was also a favorite, now with over 44 million individual views at YouTube alone.
Stone Sour’s most recent all-original releases, the monumental “HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES – PART 1” and “HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES – PART 2,” both made top 10 debuts on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon their 2012 and 2013 arrivals – the band’s third and fourth consecutive top 10 chart entries. The two-part concept album yielded a string of multi-format rock radio hits, including the top 5 favorites “Absolute Zero,” “Do Me A Favor,” and “Tired,” the latter of which ascended to #1 at Mainstream Rock outlets nationwide.
“HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES” drew widespread critical applause with ArtistDirect hailing “PART 1” as “a milestone for Stone Sour and for modern rock music. It’s on par with Alice In Chains’ ‘DIRT,’ Metallica’s ‘MASTER OF PUPPETS,” Queens of the Stone Age’s ‘SONGS FOR THE DEAF,’ Soundgarden’s ‘SUPERUNKNOWN,’ and any other game-changing albums you can think of.” “HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES – PART 2” earned even great acclaim, including high placement on Revolver’s “Top 20 Albums of 2013” and Noisecreep’s “Top 10 Rock + Metal Albums of 2013” ranking. The Guardian, in its four-out-of-five starred rave, praised Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor’s “remarkable transformation into heavy music’s premier polymath and renaissance man” while further hailing the album’s “towering melodies and moments of radio-friendly majesty, the band’s trademark straddling of the divide between metal and commercial rock sounding increasingly adroit.”
2015 saw the arrival of “STRAIGHT OUTTA BURBANK,” an unprecedented EP in which Stone Sour take on five immortal songs originally performed by such iconic artists as Bad Brains, Iron Maiden, The Rolling Stones, Mötley Crüe, and Slayer. Highlighted by a stunning rendition of The Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter” featuring distinctive guest vocals from Lzzy Hale of Atlantic recording group Halestorm, “STRAIGHT OUTTA BURBANK” is available now at all DSPs and streaming services.
Known far and wide as a truly incendiary live act, Stone Sour has built an international fan following through countless headline tours, multi-artist caravans, and performances at such famed festivals as Rock In Rio and the UK’s Download Festival.
Stone Sour is: Corey Taylor (vocals), Josh Rand (guitar), Roy Mayorga (drums), Johny Chow (bass), and Christian Martucci (guitar).
