Watch the video for "Fabuless" & listen to "Song #3" from the June 30 album.
Hard-rock band Stone Sour, which is led by Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor, announced Thursday that its new album, Hydrograd, will arrive June 30. The project, produced by Jay Ruston (Steel Panther, Anthrax), is the fifth studio album for the Roadrunner Records quintet, which made its debut with its eponymously titled album in 2002.
Stone Sour -- which is now rounded out by drummer Ray Mayorga, bassist Johny Chow and guitarists Josh Rand and Christian Martucci -- introduced Hydrograd with an official video for the track “Fabuless” and a stream for the track “Song #3.” “Fabuless” is one of Stone Sour’s heaviest tracks to be released as a single; its guitar-laden intro repeats itself at the chorus, where Taylor cops a few famous lyrics for the refrain. He name-checks “Been a long time since I rock ’n’ rolled” from Led Zeppelin’s “Been a Long Time” and “It’s only rock ’n’ roll but I like it” from The Rolling Stones’ namesake song as the band plays before a sea of Sky Dancer inflatables.
