STONE SOUR Plays Acoustic Set At ZIPPO Headquarters In Bradford, Pennsylvania (Video)

STONE SOUR played a short acoustic set Friday afternoon (August 31) on the stage in the parking lot of the Zippo/Case Museum in Bradford, Pennsylvania. The event was part of the company's Zippo Sessions, exclusive, intimate acoustic sessions with some of the hottest bands playing at the major festivals that the Zippo Encore booth attends.

STONE SOUR kicked off its performance with "Song #3", off the band's latest album, "Hydrograd". The group then played "Miracles", from "Audio Secrecy"; "Wicked Game", a Chris Isaak cover; "Through Glass", from "Come What(ever) May"; and finished with "Rose Red Violet Blue (This Song is Dumb & So Am I)" , from "Hydrograd".

STONE SOUR drummer Roy Mayorga told The Bradford Era that it was "an honor and privilege" to play in Bradford, "to see the [Zippo] factory and to meet all the people inside that helped develop lighters and helped develop our lighters, as well. So, we're fully thankful for that. To just play this show for everyone in town is pretty awesome … great energy out there."

Senior Zippo brand manager Lucas Johnson said: "Being on tour and at huge rock festivals with STONE SOUR over the past few months has been amazing, but bringing the band here to Zippo's hometown and sharing Zippo Sessions with the whole Zippo and Case family and community has been the icing on the cake."

"Hydrograd" was released as a deluxe edition on August 31. The two-disc set, "Hydrograd Deluxe Edition", collects unreleased covers, b-sides, live recordings and alternate versions of songs from "Hydrograd". The deluxe edition is highlighted by "Burn One Turn One", a previously unreleased b-side from "Hydrograd".

"Hydrograd Deluxe Edition" features 13 rare or unreleased songs including an acoustic version of the No. 1 rock song "Song #3", as well as covers of hits from RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, SOUNDGARDEN and VAN HALEN.

STONE SOUR is supporting Ozzy Osbourne on the initial North American leg of the legendary vocalist's "No More Tours 2" tour, which kicked off August 30 in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
