Stone Sour will be releasing new music in 2020, but it’s not the usual album release cycle fans are used to.
Guitarist Josh Rand tells Billboard the band will be releasing one previously unreleased track or demo every week in the New Year. The various tracks range from the present to back when the band first formed in 1992.
“I’m pretty excited about that,” Rand said. “I think it’s going to be really cool, and it’ll give an insight into how we work as a band. It’s an interesting thing to hear stuff in its raw form and not polished like you hear in a finished record. There’s a rawness to it that’s cool.”
Rand also said that a summer release is also currently planned and said, “It’s a mixture of everything — some live stuff, some demo stuff, some new material that has not been heard. It’ll be really cool, and we’re all really excited about it, but I can’t say too much yet.”
As for new new material from Stone Sour, Rand said he has seven demos, but there’s no timetable as to when the band will get together and actually start working considering frontman Corey Taylor‘s current touring commitments with Slipknot.
