Corey Taylor's side project band Stone Sour have just begun the recording process for their fourth upcoming album, which is set to release this fall. With the majority of the record already written, the band went straight to the recording studio, and is again working with Roadrunner Records.

The quintet hail from Des Moines, Iowa, and are working at Sound Farm Studios, which is nearby in Jamaica, Iowa, along with producer David Bottrill. The new album will follow 2010's Audio Secrecy.

The article states:

This album will be another progression for the band, stated guitarist Josh Rand. Musically, we have always challenged one another to push things to our limits, and this record is no exception. Rand also shared some details about the album's lyrical and storytelling narrative, saying, Lyrically, the album follows one character to that complex moment in his life, when he finally has to decide which path to take. It's a spiritual and moral power play for control of what this man will be for the rest of his life. Each song will tell the story from different sides of the character's personality, with the listener ultimately deciding how the story ends.

To keep you occupied, Roadrunner is making the song "The Pessimist" available for digital download. The track was featured on the Transformers 3 soundtrack. You can also get a listen of the song below:
