Internationally acclaimed rock band Stone Sour has announced new North American tour dates for early 2018.  The new dates include a co-headline tour with Halestorm and special guests The Dead Deads set to commence on January 27th in Abbotsford, British Columbia, followed by a string of headline shows with support from Red Sun Rising and The Dead Deads which get underway February 16th in Grand Rapids, MI (see attached itinerary).  Tickets for all dates go on sale November 17th.  Stone Sour are currently traversing Europe on the ‘Hydrograd World Tour’ which kicked off earlier this month with support from The Pretty Reckless.   For complete details and ticket availability, please visit www.stonesour.com.

 

Stone Sour recently released the official music video for their single “Rose Red Violent Blue (This Song Is Dumb & So Am I),” featured on their chart-topping new album, HYDROGRAD. The official music video – directed by Ryan Valdez – is streaming now on www.stonesour.com.  “Rose Red Violent Blue (This Song Is Dumb & So Am I)” is currently #14 at Active Rock radio outlets nationwide and follows Stone Sour’s #1 Rock Radio single “Song #3.”

 

HYDROGRAD, the new album from Stone Sour, rocketed onto the charts this past June, debuting at #1 on three Billboard charts: “Top Current Albums,” “Top Rock Albums,” and “Top Hard Rock Albums.”  HYDROGRAD also debuted at #8 on the “Billboard 200,” marking the band’s fifth consecutive Top 10 debut on that chart.  Furthermore, HYDROGRAD debuted at #5 in the U.K. (the band’s highest debut ever in that country), #2 in Australia (highest debut ever), and was Top 5 in Germany, Japan, and Switzerland.

 

Furthermore, HYDROGRAD’s lead single “Song #3” spent an amazing 5 straight weeks at #1 at Active Rock Radio, marking the GRAMMY® nominated band’s fourth #1 single and eighth Top 5 single at the format. “Song #3” is joined by a Ryan Valdez directed official video, which has received over 6 Million views on the band’s official YouTube channel while garnering 10 Million streams on Spotify, including placement on Rock This and Rock Hard playlists.  

 

Stone Sour’s new LP, HYDROGRAD, features the tracks “Song #3,” “Fabuless,” and “Taipei Person/Allah Tea,” and “Mercy.”  “Fabuless” is joined by an official music video, directed by Paul Brown, which has received over 5 million views on Stone Sour’s official YouTube channel, while “Mercy” is accompanied by a live video performed and recorded at Sphere Studios in North Hollywood, CA. 

 

Stone Sour unleashed their eponymous debut album in 2002 and was immediately confirmed as one of the most significant hard rock outfits of the 21st century. The self-titled release earned RIAA gold certification while singles “Get Inside” and “Inhale” each received GRAMMY® Award nominations for “Best Metal Performance.”

 

COME WHAT(EVER) MAY followed in 2006 and proved an even greater accomplishment with a top 5 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 and a #1 entry onto Billboard’s “Rock Albums” chart. The acclaimed album spawned still another GRAMMY®-nominated single in “30/30-150” on its own way to RIAA gold certification.  COME WHAT(EVER) MAY unleashed a series of rock radio classics, including “Sillyworld,” “Made of Scars,” the #1 hit, “Through Glass,” which spent seven weeks atop Billboard’s “Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks” while also reaching #2 on “Alternative Songs” and the top 40 on the overall “Hot 100.” The song’s companion video was also a favorite, now with over 49 million individual views at YouTube alone.

 

Stone Sour’s most recent all-original releases, the monumental HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES – PART 1 and HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES – PART 2, both made top 10 debuts on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 just six months apart from one another – the band’s third and fourth consecutive top 10 chart entries. The two-part concept album yielded a string of multi-format rock radio hits, including the top 5 favorites “Absolute Zero,” “Do Me A Favor,” and “Tired,” the latter of which ascended to #1 at Mainstream Rock outlets nationwide.

 

HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES drew widespread critical applause with ArtistDirect hailing “PART 1” as “a milestone for Stone Sour and for modern rock music. It’s on par with Alice In Chains’ ‘DIRT,’ Metallica’s MASTER OF PUPPETS, Queens of the Stone Age’s SONGS FOR THE DEAF, Soundgarden’sSUPERUNKNOWN, and any other game-changing albums you can think of.” HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES – PART 2 earned equally great acclaim, including placement on Revolver’s “Top 20 Albums of 2013” and Loudwire’s “Top 10 Rock + Metal Albums of 2013” ranking. The Guardian, in its four-out-of-five starred rave, praised Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor’s “remarkable transformation into heavy music’s premier polymath and renaissance man” while further hailing the album’s “towering melodies and moments of radio-friendly majesty, the band’s trademark straddling of the divide between metal and commercial rock sounding increasingly adroit.”

 

2015 saw the arrival of STRAIGHT OUTTA BURBANK, an unprecedented EP in which Stone Sour take on five immortal songs originally performed by such iconic artists as Bad Brains, Iron Maiden, The Rolling Stones, Mötley Crüe, and Slayer. The EP is highlighted by a stunning rendition of The Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter” featuring distinctive guest vocals from Lzzy Hale of Atlantic recording group Halestorm, STRAIGHT OUTTA BURBANK is available now at all DSPs and streaming services.

  

Stone Sour is: Corey Taylor (vocals), Josh Rand (guitar), Roy Mayorga (drums), Johny Chow (bass), and Christian Martucci (guitar).
