'Audio Secrecy' also yielded the worldwide No. 1 smash single "Say You'll Haunt Me," which sat atop the Active Rock chart for eight straight weeks, and was the No.1 Mainstream Rock Song of the Year in 2010 and a top 10 Active Rock song. Stone Sour released 'Audio Secrecy' to much acclaim, including magazine cover features for Revolver and Guitar Edge along with placements in Vice, Inked, Huffington Post, SPIN and more. The band also performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! during the album cycle.
Now, they are preparing to make their much-anticipated return and the table is being set for another breakthrough performance from Stone Sour.
"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. You can go here to grab the song.
