Stone Sour have announced that they have entered the studio to begin recording their fourth full-length album.
The band is recording the new album with producer David Bottrill (Tool, Muse, Staind) at Sound Farm Studios just outside of their native Des Moines, Iowa, and it will be released later in the year through Roadrunner Records.
The band’s guitarist Josh Rand said:
"This album will be another progression for the band. Musically, we have always challenged one another to push things to our limits, and this record is no exception. Lyrically, the album follows one character to that complex moment in his life, when he finally has to decide which path to take. It’s a spiritual and moral power play for control of what this man will be for the rest of his life. Each song will tell the story from different sides of the character’s personality, with the listener ultimately deciding how the story ends."
