Stone Sour and Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor is pulling double duty this year in more ways than one. Stone Sour is putting out its second album in as many years; the first was House of Gold & Bones Part 1, which dropped last year, and the second, House of Gold & Bones Part 2, came out in April.
Later this year, Stone Sour and Slipknot will be performing the same weekend, as part of Ozzfest Japan and the Download Festival. On top of that, Taylor just released a comic book to coincide with House of Gold & Bones.
Up on the Sun talked with Corey Taylor about the differences between House of Gold & Bones Parts 1 and 2, his bucket-list collaboration with Dave Grohl, and new music from Slipknot.
Stone Sour is scheduled to play U-Fiesta in Mesa on Saturday, May 4.
