COREY TAYLOR Says He Will Begin Work On Next STONE SOUR Album Later This Year

SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor was interviewed at the first-ever Carolina Rebellion festival, which was held on Saturday, May 7 at Metrolina Expo in Charlotte, North Carolina.

When asked about his plans for the foreseeable future, Taylor said, "We're talking about doing another STONE SOUR album. I've already got about 16 songs written. We're gonna do something This will the first time we get to do back-to-back albums. It's something I'm pretty excited about. I've got a really great concept and hopefully it flushes out that way. We still haven't gotten together and demoed everything yet. But if I have it my way, it's gonna be the biggest thing we've ever done."

STONE SOUR canceled the rest of its recent tour dates after drummer Roy Mayorga suffered a stroke following a gig in Des Moines, Iowa last month.

The canceled STONE SOUR concerts included stops in Rapid City, South Dakota, Fargo, North Dakota, Detroit, Libertyville, Illinois, and Columbus, Ohio.

Mayorga joined STONE SOUR in 2006 after the band's previous drummer, Joel Ekman, was forced to leave the group in order to spend time with his son, who was diagnosed with brain stem cancer.

STONE SOUR bassist Shawn Economaki was forced to leave the band's recent tour to deal with undisclosed "personal issues." STONE SOUR has used a replacement bassist for some recent shows.

The band's third album, "Audio Secrecy", has sold 175,000 copies in the U.S. since its September 2010 release.

STONE SOUR is not scheduled to perform again until September, when the band will appear at Brazil's Rock In Rio festival. Frontman Corey Taylor and guitarist Jim Root will play shows this summer with SLIPKNOT.
