Stone Sour Prepares Album ‘No One Wants Us To Make’
It’s been two years since the last effort from the Cory Taylor led band Stone Sour, Audio Secrecy, was released. The band is set to release their latest project this year, and according to the front man, it’s an album “no one wants us to make.” Taylor recently spoke with ARTISTdirect to discuss the upcoming release.
“I am looking forward to basically becoming a mad scientist in the studio and creating an album that no one wants us to make,” Taylor said. “I pretty much got permission to do whatever I wanted, which means that I’m essentially going against the grain in an age where people are f—ing trying to simply put out singles. We’re looking to do a double concept album and really make it destructive.”
Taylor revealed that the upcoming release would blend the likes of Pink Floyd’s The Wall and Alice in Chains’ Dirt, but put them “on steroids – that will give you a taste of what I’m shooting for right now.”
“We’ve already got 14 tunes done, and we’re looking to get another 15 ready to go. The stuff we have right now is nuclear. It’s pretty much going to go all the way. It’s dark as s–t. There’s so much balls-out rock on it as well as some good headpunchers and some really cool dark pieces. I’m really excited about it.”
