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", "Fedback" and "Riptide" are available for streaming on the Moonshot MySpace page.
Stone Sour's gold-certified sophomore CD, "Come What(Ever) May", is available in a special edition featuring six bonus tracks, four music videos, and a complete concert filmed in Moscow.
