Stone Sour Guitarist Josh Rand Checking Into Treatment Center

Jason Bullinger For Alternative Revolt

Stone Sour guitarist Josh Rand has entered a treatment center and will miss the band’s upcoming Canada / U.S. tour.

According to the statement, “Unfortunately, Josh Rand has checked into a treatment center and will not be joining Stone Sour for the Canada/U.S. tour. Though he will be back as soon as possible, we ask you all to keep him in your thoughts. Until then, the rest of Stone Sour will see you all on tour in Jan/Feb. Thank you.”

Stone Sour have had a pretty big year both on tour and with their current album Hydrograd. They’ve released three singles — “Fabuless,” “Song #3” and “Rose Red Violent Blue” — that have kept them present on the airwaves, while a 2017 pairing with Korn was one of the year’s top rock tours.
