Watch Corey Taylor Perform Acoustic Version of Stone Sour's "Song #3"

Watch Corey Taylor Perform Acoustic Version of Stone Sour's

During an in-studio appearance at Berlin, Germany’s Star FM 87.9 Maximum Rock radio station, Stone Sour’s Corey Taylor performed an acoustic version of the band’s new single, “Song #3.” The song will appear on Stone Sour’s forthcoming album, ‘Hydrograd,’ which is set for a June 30 release via Roadrunner Records. The clip can be seen below.

While issuing a studio update for our February/March 2017 issue, Taylor explained: “People have had it wrong about Stone Sour for a long time. We’re not a metal band that plays hard rock stuff—we are a rock band that plays everything. And to me, this is the first Stone Sour album that’s really going to prove that point about this band.”

“It’s hard to explain,” he continued. “It’s hard rock, but not in the typical hard rock sense. It’s heavy and melodic, but not in those typical senses. Anybody who likes the 'Burbank' stuff [on which the band covered classic rock and metal anthems by The Rolling Stones, Bad Brains, Alice in Chains, Iron Maiden, Slayer, and others] is going to love the originals. As eclectic as those covers were, that’s kind of where we’re at with the music here. But when you listen to the songs as a whole, it all just fits so well together!” The full excerpt can be seen here.

The original version of “Song #3” can be heard at this location, while the official music video for band’s first single from the effort, “Fabuless,” can be seen here.

‘Hydrograd’ was recorded by producer Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Steel Panther) at Sphere Studios in North Hollywood, California.

In addition, Stone Sour will embark on a North American tour this summer. The band will kickoff the trek with an exclusive Rock on the Range launch party on May 18 at Express Live in Columbus, Ohio, concluding the tour on August 2 in Cleveland, Ohio at Blossom Music Center. The full itinerary is available at this location.
