Corey Taylor: “If The Opportunity Arose, I Would Absolutely Do Something With Stone Sour”

As previously reported, Corey Taylor recently revealed that Stone Sour are on an “indefinite hiatus.” Despite this, the frontman has since said that he is still open to doing something with the band “if the opportunity arose.”

Taylor said the following on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation Virtual Invasion”:

“[Stone Sour is] kind of up in the air. I’m certainly not mad at Stone Sour. [My solo album] is just something that has my attention; this is what I wanna do for a while.

There’s been some contention here and there, in the past — nothing that I’m gonna get into too much detail about — but it was just time for me to step away and do this for a while. It was time for me to kind of do something different, and do it in a way that doesn’t have the connotations of either band, to be honest.

I’m still friends with everybody in Stone Sour. Everybody in Stone Sour is doing their own thing, and if the opportunity arose, I would absolutely do something with Stone Sour. But for right now, this is really where my energy’s at; this is where my focus is.

I’ll never say never, because, obviously, the best way to make God laugh is to announce your plans out loud. But this is what my focus is right now.”

Taylor’s solo album “CMFT” will be released on October 2.
