STONE SOUR: Studio Update; Photos Available

STONE SOUR, the band featuring SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor and guitarist Jim Root, are still hard at work on their sophomore album with producer Nick Rasculinecz (FOO FIGHTERS, VELVET REVOLVER). The drum tracks by session drummer Roy Mayorga (ex-SOULFLY, currently a touring member of SEPULTURA) are complete, according to the most recent studio report submitted by guitarist Josh Rand. "Jim and myself just finished up guitar tracks for the song 'Your God' today, so that makes 8 out of 17 rhythm guitar tracks done," Rand said. "[Bassist] Shawn has also started tracking this week and Corey plans on singing tonight."

STONE SOUR drummer Joel Ekman was forced to sit out the recording sessions for the group's new album in order to spend time with his nine-year-old son, who was diagnosed with Brain Stem Glioma (brain cancer) last fall.

STONE SOUR's new album will follow up the group's 2002 self-titled debut, which went gold and featured the hit single, "Bother".
