American rockers Stone Sour have officially unleashed the video for "Do Me A Favor," the previously released single off their forthcoming concept album "House Of Gold & Bones Part 2." Directed by Phil Mucci with a clear Frank Miller's "Sin City" comic book feel to it, the video incorporates several of the concept album's characters in an intricate, yet somewhat confusing storyline. Since the group is planning to release a comic series based on the album, the current approach seems perfectly fitting.
According to frontman Corey Taylor, the video is loosely based on a part of the short story that happens towards the end.
"It's a lot of action and fire. All the main characters are there: The Human, Allen, Peck, Black John and the Numbers... It's a great ride."
The video starts off with a traveler wandering into an abandoned church seeking shelter, showing his demons from the past along the way. With the words "In Domus De Aurum Et Ossium," which is Latin for "In House Of Gold & Bones" depicted throughout the video, the clip is definitely open for various interpretations, already given by some fans in the comments section.
As far as the full album goes, "House of Gold & Bones Part 2" will be released on April 9 via Roadrunner Records and is available for preorder on iTunes. The band is set to embark on a world tour at the beginning of April, stretching all the way to July with a total of around 40 concert dates.
