Back in 2012 and 2013, Stone Sour released their House of Gold and Bones duology, and now the band is gearing up for the release of their sixth studio album, Hydrograd. If you’ve been following front man Corey Taylor on Twitter, you’ll know he’s been talking about this album for a while now, so it’s a relief to see it’s finally coming to fruition. In celebration of the album’s official announcement, the group has released two new singles: “Fabuless” and “Song #3.” Despite how much I loved both of the records in the House of Gold and Bones duology, I can’t say either of these songs make me excited for this forthcoming record, which is unfortunate. However, I’ll still be giving the album a listen when it drops on June 30th, as there are elements I like from both tracks.
“Song #3” and the music video for “Fabuless” can be found below and pre-orders for Hydrograd can be found here.
