It’s the news you have all been waiting for. Hot on the heels of their incredible set at this year’s Download Festival, three-time Grammy nominees STONE SOUR are teaming up with Avenged Sevenfold for a major co-headline tour this winter.
Frontman Corey Taylor, who steps over from his ‘other job’ fronting Slipknot, is excited to be returning to the UK, stating;
“This tour with Avenged Sevenfold is going to be great! We were looking for something different and exciting to do with our next UK tour and it just made perfect sense. The shows are going to be amazing and the fans are going to lose their minds. Here we fucking GO!”
The Des Moines-based five-piece also release their third studio album, ‘Audio Secrecy’ on 6th September. The album was recorded in Nashville during the Spring floods earlier this year, with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains, Rush) manning the boards. The album’s first single, ‘Mission Statement’ is available now from iTunes and all good online digital retailers. Second single ‘Say You’ll Haunt Me’ is set for a digital release on August 1st. You can hear the track online HERE.
The tour will be Avenged Sevenfold’s first UK tour since 2008 and guitarist Zacky Vengeance commented, “We will be returning to the UK this fall. You have been warned.”
