Iowa hard rock outfit, STONE SOUR, has announced their long awaited Australian headline tour.
Fronted by the charismatic Corey Taylor (Slipknot), the band has sold more than four million albums worldwide over the course of five full-length releases. Australian audiences last witnessed the raw power of a Stone Sour live show in 2013 when the band played Soundwave Festival and some sideshows with Linkin Park.
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 21st Century. 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 onto Billboard’s Rock Albums Chart. The acclaimed album spawned still another GRAMMY®-nominated single in 30/30-150. 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.
Stone Sour is: Corey Taylor (vocals), Josh Rand (guitar), Roy Mayorga (drums), Johny Chow (bass), and Christian Martucci (guitar).
