For the last few months, Stone Sour has been in the studio working on their fourth studio album. Frontman Corey Taylor took to his Twitter account on Monday to reveal the name and the release date for their upcoming double album. The singer tweeted , “The new Stone Sour album is a 2-part double concept album called House of Gold and Bones (HoGaB), parts 1 and 2. Part 1 will drop in Oct '12.”
The singer added that the second part will be released sometime in 2013, tweeting , “Part 2 will drop next year. 24 songs, 12 on each disc. Each disc will include one half of the story.” Taylor also listed a number of song titles that are expected to be a part of the upcoming album’s track list, including “Absolute Zero,” “RU486,” “A Rumor of Skin” and “Taciturn.”
In addition, Taylor tweeted that he will be working on creating a comic book to go along with the album as soon as he can “lock in the company who will help me put it together.”
Taylor only has a couple of weeks to finish the new album before donning his Slipknot mask and heading out on this year's Rockstar Mayhem Festival with Slayer and Motörhead . That outing kicks off June 30 at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, CA.
