STONE SOUR Making 'Huge Impact' With New Single 'Through Glass'

Weeks before the song officially goes for adds at radio, STONE SOUR is making a huge impact around the country with the first single, "Through Glass", from their upcoming second album. Band members, lead vocalist Corey Taylor and guitarist James Root (who do double duty in multi-platinum, Grammy winners SLIPKNOT), bassist Shawn Economaki, guitarist Josh Rand and new drummer Roy Mayorga (ex-SOULFLY) are on their way to having a big hit! The emotionally captivating and melodic track — one of the highlights of the August 1 release "Come What(ever) May" (Roadrunner), the much-anticipated follow-up to their gold debut album — was #1 Most Added at Active and Rock radio last week as well as #2 Most Added at Modern Rock. Stations who've shown early support include: KBPI (Denver), KISS (San Antonio), KISW (Seattle), KDGE (Dallas), KTBZ (Houston), WBCN & WAAF (Boston), WBZX (Columbus), WIIL (Chicago), WJRR (Orlando), WMMS (Cleveland), WRIF & CIMX (Detroit), WRZX (Indianapolis) and WXTB (Tampa), among others, with MANY more coming this week!

Blending acoustic and electric textures, the song is filled with raw emotions as Corey Taylor sings riveting lyrics lines like "When something like a soul becomes initialized and folded up like/Paper dolls and little notes, you can't expect a bit of hope," before finding redemption in the soaring refrain: 'And it's the stars, the stars that shine for you."

As previously reported, a STONE SOUR e-card for "Come What(ever) May", has been launched at this location. The tracks "Reborn", "30/30-150", and "Through Glass" can be heard on the e-card, and the video for "30/30-150" is also available for viewing. The clip, which was shot in Los Angeles with director Paul Brown (MÖTLEY CRÜE, OTEP), received a "Headbanger's Ball" premiere this past Saturday, June 3.

Look for STONE SOUR to hit the road this summer for the much-anticipated Family Values Tour with KORN and DEFTONES, beginning July 27.
