Fans of Stone Sour are well-aware of the two covers EPs the band has in the works, but very few details have been released…until now.
Corey Taylor was on Chris Jericho’s podcast Talk Is Jericho (around the 21:30 mark) and that Motley Crue, Iron Maiden, Slayer, The Rolling Stones, Van Halen, Rage Against the Machine and AC/DC are among the artists set to be getting the cover treatment. Taylor also revealed that the EPs will be called Straight Outta Burbank and No Sleep ‘Till Burbank. (Clever. We see what you did there.)
Taylor didn’t divulge any track info to go with those artists, however, guitarist Josh Rand did post this picture of him and Lzzy Hale to his Instagram page. (Note the caption.)
In case you’re not fluent in rock and roll classics, that last hashtag is a lyric from The Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter,” which means Lzzy will be wailing the lyrics that Merry Clayton made famous. We’d be lying if we said we cannot wait to hear this cover!
