STONE SOUR Parts Ways With Bassist Shawn Economaki - Twit From Corey Taylor Available!

Today, it was announced that STONE SOUR, the band featuring SLIPKNOT's Corey Taylor (vocals) and Jim Root (guitar), has parted ways with bassist Shawn Economaki. Here is Corey Taylor's Tweet regarding this matter:

"As some of you might have heard but I'll confirm it: Shawn Economaki is no longer with STONE SOUR. We wish him luck in the future."

As previously reported, Economaki left STONE SOUR in April 2011 during the "Avalanche Tour" to handle some "personal issues." He was temporarily replaced by Jason Christopher, who has since joined Sebastian Bach's touring band. While his replacement hasn't been announced yet, James Root posted the picture below on his Instagram account. Is this the bands NEW bassist?

The album is expected in the Fall of 2012, two years after the band's most recent longplayer 'Audio Secrecy', which debuted at position No. 6 on the Billboard chart and No. 1 on the U.S. iTunes Rock Album chart. It scored the highest international debuts of the band’s career, including Top 5 charts in Germany, Japan and Austria, and Top 10 in the U.K. and Australia. Taylor tweeted the fall release plan, adding that the album has a title but that he "won't give it away yet."
