Stone Sour have premiered a full album stream of their forthcoming release, "House of Gold and Bones Part 2", which arrives everywhere on April 9th, Roadrunner reports. The album is the second installment of the groups two part concept record, following the story written by singer Corey Taylor. You may listen to the whole album below.

"Part 2 is the exciting conclusion. You will hear darkness. You will hear reflections of Part 1. You will see what's next. Most importantly, you will join the characters as they finally decide," says Taylor.

The bands current single, "Do Me A Favor," continues to climb the active rock charts, breaking into the Top 10 this week. Preorders for "Do Me A Favor" and "House of Gold and Bones Part 2" are available on iTunes now.

Stone Sour are currently out on the "Revolver Road to the Golden Gods" tour with In This Moment and Hell or Highwater which kicked off April 2nd at Portland, Maine's State Theatre and culminates with a performance at the 5th Annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards presented by Epiphone, on May 2nd at Los Angeles' Club Nokia.

Furthermore, the first issue of "House of Gold and Bones" (Dark Horse Comics) will be released April 17th, written by Corey Taylor and featuring the artwork of Richard Clarke (interior) and Jason Shawn Alexander (cover).

    Stone Sour really have outdone themselves with House of Gold & Bones. Part II is much darker than the predecessor and I have to say I was worried it wouldn't be as good as Part I but it did not disappoint. Going to buy this when it's out

    Easily one of tne of the best albums to have come out this year so far.

    Don't know dude Device's self titled album is pretty kick ass, it has Serj Tankian and Geezer Butler on the same track just to give you a hint about how awesome it is

    Keep in mind the 2 albums are made to work together. Black John has some familiar riffs in it to also..I Have listened to it a few times over now...awesome follow up to Pt.1. Will be buying when it comes out next Tues.

    Exactly. In the end of Do Me a Favor, the ending riff and vocal pattern is reminiscent of A Rumor of Skin.

    The band stated a while back that there was going to be a bit of reprises to songs from the first album, such as House of Gold and Bones and Do Me a Favor. The Conflagration shows a reprise to The Travelers at the end. It's pretty awesome!

    Listening to it now, it's living up to quite the bit of expectations! :-D

    Audio Secrecy scared me... in the way that it made me worry about the fate of Stone Sour. House of Gold & Bones Part 1 & 2 made all that fear and worry simply, go away. Damn it feels good to just close my eyes and nod my head listening to them again

    My work day in front of the computer just got a helluva lot better. If it's anything like the first I'll probably have to pause it when customers come in. Awesome.

    I didn't think they'd be able to pull off something better than Part 1 but I'm only 2 tracks in and I'm loving what I'm hearing. Fuck yeah.

    I tell ye the truth between this album, new Ghost record, AIC and possibly Tool... this is living up to be a phenomenal year to be a fan of good music. I just hope Opeth and Metallica hurry the hell up
    metalme31
    oops I made a mistake... I meant to say it feels good to just close my eyes, nod, and BANG my head while listening to them again Can't forget to bang ha

    What a great collection of songs these dudes have put together. Part 1 is an incredible album on its own, and this is sounding very promising. Can't wait to read part 2 as well

    The first track was a little wierd for me, but I'm very happy with that album. I was expecting more reprises of songs from part 1.

    Sadist does sound a lot like Seasons in the Abyss, which is one of my favorite songs, so this one will be right up there with it.

    This is just missing a nice long finale, it woulda been cool to have it end with a 8 minute song with elements from some of the earlier songs and things of that nature.
    mattru486
    YES. Even after hearing only the first 5 minutes of this album, I can already say it's awesome.

    if you pay close attention to the track house of gold and bones you will notice that the riffs are just combined riffs of all the songs from part 1. got the cd today. clearly their best, besides their self titled. just finished building the house of gold and bones as well. very cool concept. cant wait for the comics to come out!

    Stone boring. I can record tv commercials and hear the same mainstream bs. There's a reason why a Creed fan would like this...
