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.

Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.

    the last slipknot album had some really good songs, like gehanna, gematria, psychosocial and snuff ( snuff was way too much like stone sour, but still a great song) the rest was just average, especially the vocals. theyu should combine the really emotional vocals from "slipknot" era, really heavy-but-melodic stuff from vol. 3, instead of the vocals thats just one monotonous scream. im a pretty big slipknmot fan, im sure theyll come out with some better songs if they do another album

    People need to be open minded about All Hope is Gone. I see all these comments saying it was boring and honestly I can't see how people think that. It's an amazing album, you just need to get past the "Uber Metalz lawl" and listen to musicianship.

Yeah i know, its like when metallica switched from thrash to doing something different. just look at the musicianship its awesome this album is one of the best they've made i think slipknot has progressed a lot since 99 its not about being the most brutal or heavy but who has the balls to be a bit diverse and try something new. these guys pulled that off quite well imo

    I like the new album better than the old stuff. I personally think they got better on each album. I wish people could enjoy their slower songs, because their slower songs are so beautiful(Dead Memories, Snuff, etc)

    thats why your username has Maggot in it, right?

    sounds something a bandwagoner would say

    I agree, I like both bands, but I'd like to see Slipknot in the main spotlight for Corey and Jim for a couple years :/

    IMO, slipknot is blending WAY to much with stone sour. i mean, yea, there were some good heavy songs on All Hope Is Gone, but songs like Dead Memories were just completely NOT slipknot. i think coreys already got the stone sour sound down, he just has to work more on slipknot's sound.

    Well hear come the roumors of slipknot breaking up just like the last two times corey and jim worked on stone sour. I think slipknot has at least one more album left in them until they call it quits and devote themselves to all their side bands like stone sour, the murderdolls and alike. Whatever they do, they are all really talented musicians and I can't wait to see what's next.

    Stone Sour: No Album Until 2010
    no way! :o not a surprise hes on tour with slipknot XD then he deserves a break before recording

    they should just stick with slipknot, because man...if I have to hear more "looking at you through the glass..." I'm going to commit arson, besides...all hope is gone was way better than the overly atonal abominations slipknot was releasing before

    Maybe listen to some other Stone Sour songs before criticisng them. I possibly like Stone Sour slightly more than Slipknot, however I would much rather see Slipknot than Stone Sour live. I dunno, I just like it when Corey actually sings, his rougher voice doesn't really sound to great in my opinion.

    Kind of off-subject, but Slipknot has surprised me so much throughout their career. From being that nu-metal label, to experimenting with lots of styles and displaying their musical capabilities is great to see. Stone Sour is good, but honestly, I just see so much more diversity and potential in Slipknot.

    Here's Corey's schedule it seems lol. 2004-Slipknot,2006-Stone Sour 2008-Slipknot, 2010-Stone Sour, 2012-Slipknot, 2014-Stone Sour. Kinda getting a pattern here.
    slitan
    die-heart fan been listening to them forever but corey is folowing the trends like manson the rest of the band even said he was chaning it and the band didnt like it
    dedguy666
    If Slipknot decides to make another album, they should go old school and have Ross Robinson produce it. If AHIG was produced by him, it would be 10 times better.

    That would be sick.

    So the 'Knot can stay on tour for a year or so, while Rand does the Moonshot thing (which is awesome, IMO), and then Stone Sour in 2010. When does Corey get to sleep?
    mfkr
    /\ no anyway... fair enough really seeing as slipknot just released an album
    K!nj!
    hmm I hope Corey doesn't ruin his voice during the slipknot tour then.

    They are doing some touring next year, and when knot tour they tend to tour the whole year no stops.

    When i first read the headline i was like "damn.. that sucks" But now that i think about it, it makes sense. They have to tour with SlipKnot for alittle then start writing. I think thats cool.

    I would much rather wait until 2011 for a good Slipknot album to make up for the snoozefest that was 'All Hope Is Gone' than wait for another Stone Sour album.

    2010? we've practically got stone sour right now, in the form of slipknot in their weakened mainstream state. that dead memories video btw is a total pile of rubbish. metal bands nowadays are going to theatrical with the videos. they dont even play their instruments in that one ffs
    Levi79
    jim and corey will have alot more time for slipknot which in my opinion have grown soo much musically with all hope is gone and stonesour is what made us wait so long for all hope is gone although stonesour is awesome i am glad they will have more time for slipknot, i hope they tour canada

    anything that involves jim root and corey im a fan of by far. now, i loved all hope is gone..but that album had some stone sour like songs on it.. 'dead memories' and 'snuff' are not slipknot songs really. but none the less, they are still ****in sick
    rohanrulz23
