Stone Sour will play at The Signal on May 8.
Review for Stone Sour:
Fronted by Corey Taylor, the inimitable New York Times-bestselling author and vocalist of the 10-time Grammy nominated, one-time winning band Slipknot, Stone Sour are heading out on a headlining tour supporting their sixth studio album Hydrograd. The record was named "Hard Rock Album of the Year" at the 2017 Loudwire Music Awards.
The hook-laden single "Song #3," topped the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart for five consecutive weeks, and "Rose Red Violent Blue (This Song Is Dumb & So Am I)," the video of which features a cameo appearance from glam rockers Steel Panther.
"It is kind of a departure, but not really," says Taylor on Hydrograd. "To me, it's more of an evolution. It's taking everything that we've done on the last few albums, and really honing it down and turning that diversity into more cohesion and really finding the strength in the song to be able to express ourselves through all of these different genres that we've always dipped our toes in, whether it's hard rock, or heavy, or metal, or just rock and roll, or straight up punk, or even in one of the cases a bit of California country. I don't think it's so much a departure, as it is just becoming more of what Stone Sour really means."
