Stone Sour Reveal Track Listing For Part 2 Of New Album
Yesterday Stone Sour unveiled the artwork for “House Of Gold & Bones Part 2,” the conclusion to last year’s first part of the album, due out in April. Today the band have revealed some more information in the way of the track listing for the upcoming album. Check it out after the jump.
Vocalist Corey Taylor spoke about House Of Gold & Bones Part 2:
Part 2 is much darker [than the first part], if I’m honest. Aside from it being a completely different album, it feels more like a soundtrack to a movie in a lot of ways, man. It’s really thematic. There are themes from part 1 that reveal themselves and that come again, musically. There’s actually stuff from part 2 that you’ll hear that’s on part 1 and you’ll be like, ‘Fucking hell!’
He continued: We essentially recorded these, and this is where technology is now, so you could have these in a playlist on your iTunes and play them top to fucking bottom and really get that experience while you read both parts. So it’s some of our darkest music, our most intricate and complex music, some of the best fucking lyrics I’ve ever written, to be honest. Even writing from a narrative like that, it was so challenging. Plus, it’s got some of our best songs on it.
You guys think part one’s good? Fuck off. ‘Do Me A Favor’ alone is going to kick the shit out of people and that’s going to be the first single, which comes out in January, that’s going to be the first taste that people get of part 2, and people aren’t going to know what to do.
