STONE SOUR Debut Certified Gold

STONE SOUR's self-titled debut album has been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipments of more than 500,000 copies in the U.S. The album, described by Guitar World magazine as "melodic metal that some might actually call arena rock," has maintained a steady, strong pace since its August release. With a headlining tour in the spring with POWERMAN 5000, RA, and OUTSPOKEN as support, and the single "Inhale" currently leading the charge at radio, STONE SOUR's momentum is healthy as it sets its sights on the platinum mark.

The clever video for "Inhale", which alternately depicts the band in scenes of a seedy, urban underbelly as well as performing big-band style, was just added to both Much Music USA and MTV's "Rock Show". "Inhale" is already Top 20 at both the Rock and Active Rock panels, and chart-bound at the Modern Rock panel, according to Billboard Monitor.
