Corey Taylor: “I Think Stone Sour Is Kind Of On Hiatus Right Now”

During an interview on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation,” Corey Taylor offered an update on Stone Sour’s current status. According to him, the band “is kind of on hiatus right now.”

The frontman said the following:

“Yeah, [STONE SOUR is] kind of [on] the backburner right now. We all kind of felt that we did exactly what we wanted to do on [2017’s] ‘Hydrograd’ [album] and we’re just giving it a minute. I talked to the guys in the band about the solo thing and what I wanted to do, and they were all totally onboard with it. Everybody else has kind of got things going on, so they’re all cool. Josh [Rand, guitar] is actually working on a solo thing of his own, which is great. So, yeah, I think STONE SOUR is kind of on hiatus right now, which is fine. If someday we wanna get back together and do some stuff, it’ll be bigger than it was. But for right now, we’re all kind of focused on kind of doing our own thing. But you never say never in this business.”
