STONE SOUR recently shot a video for the song "30/30-150" in Los Angeles with director Paul Brown (MÖTLEY CRÜE, OTEP). A second clip — for the track "Through Glass" — is expected to be lensed during the coming weeks. A full-length MP3 of "30/30-150" will be made available for download on the Roadrunner web site when the clock strikes zero (around 11:59 p.m. Monday night / 12:00 a.m. Tuesday) on May 22.
"Come What(ever) May" was recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Nick Rasculinecz (FOO FIGHTERS, VELVET REVOLVER) and marks the group's first effort since the departure of drummer Joel Ekman.
STONE SOUR's new album will follow up the group's 2002 self-titled debut, which went gold and featured the hit single, "Bother".
