Corey Taylor is a man that never sleeps. In addition to being the front man for the metal juggernaut, Slipknot, Taylor also is the singer for hard rock outfit Stone Sour. He tours relentlessly throughout the year and when he is not on the road he is in the studio working on new music. His creative muse never rests and he has created some of the most memorable hard rock and heavy metal records of the past few decades.
When it came time to put together a new Stone Sour record, Taylor was inspired to write a short story that was eventually used as the basis for the group’s new 2-album concept record, House Of Gold & Bones Part 1 & 2. The story lent itself to be turned into some blistering hard rock.
Taylor is a lifelong comic book fan and has professed his love for the medium in countless interviews. With the prose narrative for “House Of Gold & Bones” already written, Taylor decided that the story leant itself to be adapted into comic book form. After pitching the book to a couple publishers Dark Horse Comics stepped in and helped Taylor bring the idea to fruition. READ MORE

In a recent post on the official Tool website, it looks like everything has been confirmed for the band to appear at Ozzfest 2013, which will take place in Japan on May 11th and 12th.

Stone Sour have announced a US tour with Papa Roach co-headlining. The band will be touring in support of
their latest album House Of Gold And Bones: Part 1. Confirmed tour dates are below (more dates will be added in the near future).
According to their November Newsletter, Tool members Adam Jones, Justin Chancellor, and Danny Carey will be continuing the writing process for their fifth full-length studio album, which is as-of-yet-untitled and also has no concrete release date. This album will be the follow-up to 2006′s 10,000 Days.
There is also a rumor going around the web that Tool will be playing Day 2 of Ozzfest Japan in May, 2013. Confirmed to be on the package is Slash, Deftones, and Slipknot (who will be headlining Day 1), and Stone Sour, and Black Sabbath (who are headlining Day 2). This rumor comes from a website entitled Ozzfest Japan but the Tool newsletter seems rather dubious, stating that they, “…have NOT been told that this is confirmed,” and that they, “…have NOT received anything that could be considered official about any shows.”
While it’s exciting to think that Tool will be releasing a new album and hitting the road, I find it best to not hold my breath and just be patient. It’s almost always worth it.
