Taylor aims for Stone Sour 6 in '16

Corey Taylor aims to record Stone Sour’s sixth album once Slipknot complete their current tour cycle.

They’ll remain on the road until the middle of next year – but after that he’ll turn his attention to the follow-up to 2013’s House Of Gold & Bones Part 2.

The frontman reported at the weekend that Slipknot would take “a couple of years off” once support duties for .5: The Gray Chapter were complete.

Now Taylor tells The Pulse Of Radio: “In 2016 I’ll probably wrap up touring with Slipknot, somewhere around the summer or whatever.

“I’ll take five minutes off then we’ll start working on a new Stone Sour album.”

The band – who split acrimoniously with Taylor’s Slipknot bandmate Jim Root last year – launched covers EP Meanwhile In Burbank… in April. Two more EPs remain to be released.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
