Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has told AOL's Noisecreep that his other band, Stone Sour, will probably go into the studio in January "for two or three months" to record its third album for a late spring/early summer release via Roadrunner Records. "We've already got ten tunes fully written and another 15 we're kind of working on here and there," he said. "When I'm not on the road I'm still working, I never stop. And it's really good, everything we're doing is really, really good."
Regarding the musical direction of the new material, Taylor said, "I can say the material is darker than [2006's] 'Come What(ever) May', but a lot more melodic, a lot stronger, a lot more mature, and the lyrics that are coming out of me are really good. I'm really excited."
Stone Sour released a deluxe edition of its second album, "Come What(ever) May", in June 2007. The new package featured all the videos from the album, six previously unreleased tracks, including a cover of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game", and a bonus DVD featuring an entire concert filmed in Moscow in late 2006.
