Hard rock band Stone Sour has taken to their Facebook page to announce that guitarist Jim Root will not be touring with the group during winter as he will be focusing on writing material for the next Slipknot album.
“With an impending Slipknot album on the horizon, Jim will not be touring with Stone Sour this winter. Everyone involved is okay with the decision and our mutual friend Christian Martucci (The Chelsea Smiles) will be filling in on guitar. It was a difficult decision, but as the fans have wanted another Stone Sour tour and Jim had responsibilities to the writing process with Slipknot, we feel this is the best decision where everyone wins.”
The new album will mark the first new release since 2008’s All Hope Is Gone. Who’s read for some more ‘Knot?
