Coming off a very successful release of their latest studio album “Hydrograd,” Stone Sour are continuing their trek on the road, this time with none other than Halestorm. Stone Sour just wrapped up a tour with Steel Panther, and have no plans on stopping anytime soon.
“It is kind of a departure, but not really. To me, it’s more of an evolution,” said singer Corey Taylor on their latest album. “It’s taking everything that we’ve done on the last few albums, and really honing it down and turning that diversity into more cohesion and really finding the strength in the song to be able to express ourselves through all of these different genres that we’ve always dipped our toes in, whether it’s hard rock, or heavy, or metal, or just rock and roll, or straight-up punk, or even in one of the cases a bit of California country.”
The festivities between Stone Sour and Halestorm will commence on January 27th in Canada, as they work their way down the east coast and into the midwest. While the news is sad that both these bands won’t be embarking on a longer slated tour more towards the west coast, fans better catch them while they can in this 3 week endeavor.
Joining these two heavy hitters will be The Dead Deads and Red Sun Rising, who will fill in for Halestorm after February 11th.
Tickets will go on sale for the general public on Friday, November 17th, with a special pre-sale occurring on Wednesday, November 15th at 10am.
