Grammy nominated rock powerhouse Stone Sour have announced the commencement of work on their third album -- the first in four years.  The band will record at Blackbird Studios in Nashville with Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Velvet Revolver, Rush, Alice In Chains), who also produced 2006’s Gold certified Come What(ever) May. 

Frontman Corey Taylor comments, “I cannot wait to make this Stone Sour album. Everything already feels a million times stronger than anything we've done in the past. Plus getting back together with Nick is going to mean monstrous things. This is the year for Stone Sour.”

Stone Sour’s last album Come What(ever) May and self-titled debut are both RIAA Gold certified and approaching platinum status.  Between the two records, the band has received three Grammy Nominations and held the #1 spot on the Active Rock charts with the song "Through Glass" for a record 7 weeks. The band’s forthcoming album is expected out sometime this summer.

Stay tuned for more updates from Stone Sour as they get to work on their new record.
