At the moment, Corey Taylor is ravaging the North American countryside with Slipknot on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. However, he's got something very big in store for Stone Sour fans this fall.
The first part of Stone Sour's forthcoming epic dual album, House of Gold and Bones, will be available. Given how mind-blowing Come Whatever May and Audio Secrecy are, House of Gold and Bones is bound to be a game-changer and a classic from the group.
In Europe, Taylor began playing one track from the set "Taciturn" acoustically.
In this exclusive interview, ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino asked him to reveal the story behind the song. Here's what he had to say.
"That song translates so well acoustically," exclaims Taylor. "When I wrote 'Taciturn', I knew it was something that could go either way. It could be a full band piece or it could be something I could play on my own. If I was going to give the people a first taste of what House of Gold and Bones parts 1 and 2 are going to be, 'Taciturn' is a nice way to give them a cool picture of it even in a stripped-down sense. That song is essentially about trust. It's about trying to find the courage to open up to the people you care about, love, and value, knowing that they're going to be there to catch you when it all comes down. They're going to be there for you when nobody else is. It's about letting go of the anchors that hold you down in life, opening yourself up and saying, 'If you're there for me, I'll be there for you. You've just got to give me a second'."
This album is going to be timeless…
