STONE SOUR Faced Different Kind Of Audience With EVANESCENCE

Launch Radio Networks reports: STONE SOUR recently had a chance to play in front of a different type of audience than usual when it opened a Canadian tour for EVANESCENCE. Guitarist Jim Root told Launch that the experience was both a challenge and an eye-opener for STONE SOUR. "They were really big, great shows, and EVANESCENCE, great band to tour with," he said. "But the crowd was very docile, you know, and with EVANESCENCE I think you kind of, you walk that line between, you know, like a rock band and a pop band, so to speak. I think there was a lot of people there that hadn't heard of us before and didn't really know anything about what we were about. So it was cool because, you know, we were able to be put in front of a, like a different type of audience."

STONE SOUR begins the spring edition of the Jagermeister Music Tour on March 23 in St. Paul, Minnesota, with LACUNA COIL and SHADOWS FALL along as support.

The second STONE SOUR album, "Come What(ever) May", has sold more than half a million copies since its release last August.

The CD's latest single is called "Sillyworld". A video for the song has been posted online at
