“I think the really cool thing is it’s a little bit of everything”, Corey told Shazamer Hazel Savage, “The first Stone Sour album we made it for us, we didn’t know if anyone would dig it so we just put it out there. We discovered then that we had a really good fan base and so we pushed it further on ‘Come What(ever) May’ and we expanded on the first album – then it kinda blew up and we were like ‘holy s**t!’. So this time round we said screw it, lets just do everything we ever wanted to do; so we put together the best songs we could and really worked on them, hammered them down.”
He continues, “…listening back to the new album I think we have achieved a cohesive and layered sound and yet it has a good live feel to it. The performances are great, the music is great….the singer is s**t but hey, he is good looking so you gonna have to let him off!
Having said that, this feels like our time and it’s really exciting. We have been working a long time on this. Stone Sour is the first real band I was ever in. It was the band I left to join Slipknot and it just made sense to reform when it was time to do something else and we have never been afraid of hard work.”
