Stone Sour Writing New Music

During an interview with Heavy magazine, Corey Taylor confirmed that Stone Sour have already began writing a follow-up to “Hydrograd.” He said the following:

“We started writing new [Stone Sour] music pretty much as soon as we got on the road. We’re just can’t be stopped. We’re gluttons for punishment at this point. The cool thing is knowing that we’ve got all this great material, we can kinda enjoy the rest as much as we can because we know when it’s time to really start ramping up the demo machine, we’re gonna have all this cool stuff to listen to. There’s no pressure for us to just run right in.”

“Obviously I’m going to do Slipknot next year, and it will allow the audience to miss [Stone Sour], which is the best thing in the world you can have. That built-in need for a band to come back just when you think you can’t wait any longer, here comes this band and they’re like, ‘Goddamn, they’re so good right now.’So we’re pretty stoked, man. We’re definitely looking forward to trying to see if we can top ‘Hydrograd’.””
