Stone Sour guitarist Josh Rand has issued the following update:
"Our tentative plan is to start rehearsals for the new album in the fall of 2009, hit the studio at the beginning of 2010, and release around summer time. I have to say that all of us are really thrilled about having Roy [Mayorga, drums] in the writing process this time around. I've heard song ideas from everyone, and I have a feeling this could be the most diverse STONE SOUR album yet!"
In related news, Josh
has been working on a new project called Moonshot
. "It's a female-fronted rock band, and I'm pretty excited about it!
" he said. Three songs from the group "Blood Red
" and "Riptide
