Stone Sour To Play Intimate NYC Gig: Event Will Be Streamed On-Line

As they gear up for September 7th release of highly anticipated new album Audio Secrecy, 3-time Grammy nominees Stone Sour have announced plans for a special intimate show/record release party at The Studio at Webster Hall in New York City on August 30th. 
 
The special performance will be available for the entire world to see via a live stream that can be viewed on stonesour.com and roadrunnerrecords.com beginning at 8:30 pm EST.
Among the songs in that night’s set will be hook-laden lead single “Say You’ll Haunt Me,” (currently No. 6 at Active Rock and No. 17 at Modern Rock radio) and hard-charging new track “Mission Statement.” The band recently offered the latter as a free download and the response was massive, as fans downloaded the song more than 1,000 times an hour during a two-day period.  
 
Stone Sour (lead vocalist Corey Taylor, guitarists James Root and Josh Rand, bassist Shawn Economaki and drummer Roy Mayorga) and producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains, Deftones) recorded Audio Secrecy at Blackbird Studios in Nashville during the destructive storms and devastating floods that hit the historic heart of Music City.

The group will be playing select songs from the album during this summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival, a 36-date tour that launches August 17 in Minneapolis, MN and will visit arenas and amphitheatres across North America before wrapping October 4 in Madison, WI.
 
Audio Secrecy is the follow-up to the gold-certified Come What(ever) May, which was also produced by Raskulinecz and debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and spawned three radio hits, including the No. 1 smash hit single, “Through Glass,” “Sillyworld” and “Made of Scars.” Billboard hailed the record as “an intense, taut piece of work,” Alternative Press called the group “masters of ass-kicking,” adding, ”In a better America, Stone Sour would be the face of American rock” and Revolver magazine gave the disc four stars and praised the quintet for “demonstrating a dynamic range equaled by few of their peers.” Stone Sour’s self-titled debut, also certified gold, spawned the band’s first breakthrough hit “Bother,” which was spotlighted on Spider-Man soundtrack.
