STONE SOUR Revisits 'Old-School Rock' On 'Sillyworld'

Launch Radio Networks reports: STONE SOUR's latest single, "Sillyworld", is one of the most experimental songs on the band's second album, "Come What(ever) May", with fans saying it sounds a little like PINK FLOYD. Lead singer Corey Taylor told Launch that he's heard the FLOYD comparison and several more. "It's actually, you know, one of four bands that that song gets compared to, you know," he said. "There's the obvious PINK FLOYD comparison. There's THE BEATLES. Somebody actually compared it to KING CRIMSON, which I was like, 'What?' (laughs) But it was a song that Jim (Root, guitarist) brought in, that I immediately reacted to. I was like, 'Oh, I love this.' And it just became this really sweet, kind of old-school rock."

STONE SOUR will headline the spring 2007 edition of the Jägermeister Music Tour, with LACUNA COIL and SHADOWS FALL along as support. The tour will begin on March 23 in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Corey Taylor told MTV.com earlier this month that he expects STONE SOUR to stay on the road for all of 2007, meaning that he and Root won't return to their other group, SLIPKNOT, until 2008.

"Come What(ever) May" arrived in stores last August and is approaching the half-million mark in sales.
