Stone Sour Recording Concept Album

Roadrunner Records sent over word that Stone Sour have begun recording their fourth album, which turns out will be a concept album.

Frontman Corey Taylor (Slipknot) previously said that the effort may end up being a double album as well. Roadrunner provided these confirmed details: With most of the new record already written, the band has headed into Sound Farm Studios just outside of their native Des Moines, Iowa with producer David Bottrill (Tool, Muse, Staind). The album is expected in the Fall of 2012.

"This album will be another progression for the band," stated guitarist Josh Rand. "Musically, we have always challenged one another to push things to our limits, and this record is no exception." Rand also shared some details about the album's lyrical and storytelling narrative, saying, "Lyrically, the album follows one character to that complex moment in his life, when he finally has to decide which path to take. It's a spiritual and moral power play for control of what this man will be for the rest of his life. Each song will tell the story from different sides of the character's personality, with the listener ultimately deciding how the story ends."

To get fans excited for the next chapter of Stone Sour, Roadrunner will be giving away a digital copy of "The Pessimist," which appeared on the Transformers 3 soundtrack via iTunes.
