Corey Taylor reveals more details about forthcoming Stone Sour album
Construction of the new STONE SOUR album is now underway according to a recent tweet from front-man Corey Taylor. The follow-up to 2010’s “Audio Secrecy” will be produced by David Bottrill (MUSE, TOOL, Peter Gabriel, etc.).
Taylor sat down recently with Artisan News to talk a little bit about the direction the album is taking:
"I am looking forward to basically becoming a mad scientist in the studio and creating an album that no one wants us to make," Taylor told ARTISTdirect. "I pretty much got permission to do whatever I wanted, which means that I'm essentially going against the grain in an age where people are fucking trying to simply put out singles. We're looking to do a double concept album and really make it destructive."
He added, "Picture [Pink Floyd's] 'The Wall' meets [Alice In Chains'] 'Dirt' on steroids, and that will give you a taste of what I'm shooting for right now. The stuff we have right now is nuclear. It's pretty much going to go all the way. It's dark as sh-t. There's so much balls out rock on it as well as some good headpunchers and some really cool f--king dark pieces. I'm really excited about it."
That's a pretty lofty statement, if I do say so myself.
The story of the album should prove to be something everyone this day and age can relate to:
"It's basically the story of a man who's trying to figure it out. He can't figure out if he's happier when he's miserable, or if he's miserable about not being happy. It's almost like a mid-life crisis in a way. He's young enough that he knows that there's still a lot of life to live, but he's old enough to realize that he can't be hung up on the romance of teenage depression and youthful aggression."
