STONE SOUR's sophomore CD, "Come What(ever) May", will be released by Roadrunner Records on August 22.

STONE SOUR recently shot a video for the song "30/30-150" in Los Angeles with director Paul Brown (MÖTLEY CRÜE, OTEP). A second clip — for the track "Through Glass" — is expected to be lensed during the coming weeks. "Come What(ever) May" was recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Nick Rasculinecz (FOO FIGHTERS, VELVET REVOLVER) and marks the group's first effort since the departure of drummer Joel Ekman.
