Stone Sour have the number one Active Rock track in the country with “Absolute Zero” which Billboard Magazine calls “A ruthless hard rocker, the track pummels the listener in the gut…" Stone Sour released House of Gold & Bones Part 1, the first installment of their two album series, House of Gold & Bones, on Roadrunner Records, October 22, 2012; it debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 album charts.  House of Gold & Bones Part 2 will be released spring 2013.
 
Recorded at Sound Farm Studios just outside of the band's native Des Moines, Iowa with producer David Bottrill (Tool, Muse) at the helm, the album has met with early rave reviews worldwide: "...by far the most accomplished album of Stone Sour's career.  Depth, emotion and spirit seem to infuse everything.  2013 has 'Stone Sour' written all over it." - 4Ks - KERRANG! (UK)
 
“House of Gold and Bones Part 1 illuminates that Stone Sour remains peerless in modern hard rock. No one else has the guts to transmute a conceptual, multimedia vision this grandiose into a record…  It's on par with Alice In Chains' Dirt, Metallica's Master Of Puppets, Queens Of The Stone Age's Songs For The Deaf, Soundgarden's Superunknown, and any other game-changing albums you can think of” said Artist Direct (US).
 
Singer, songwriter and lyricist Corey Taylor, himself a bestselling author courtesy of last year's Seven Deadly Sins, wrote the lyrics for the 23 tracks that make up House of Gold & Bones  which follows the compelling story of a character created by Taylor.  Music is just one of the mediums used to tell the story; Corey Taylor recently revealed details of the new project with Dark Horse Comics, House of Gold & Bones which follows, and expands on, the story contained within the albums.  With stunning covers from Jason Shawn Alexander (Empty Zone, Batman, Abe Sapien), this limited four-issue series marks Corey Taylor’s debut in the comics genre.
 
Stone Sour confirmed the first leg of a massive global tour push to support House of Gold & Bones, playing shows on five continents so far, with many more to come including a U.S. tour beginning January 2013 which will be announced soon.
