Stone Sour have confirmed their next covers EP will be released on Black Friday.
It features versions of songs by Bad Brains, Slayer, Motley Crue, Iron Maiden and the Rolling Stones and is out only on limited edition coloured vinyl November 27. Their cover of the Stones’ Gimme Shelter featuring Lzzy Hale has been made available to stream. Hear it below.
Frontman Corey Taylor says: “The first EP was a little closer together style-wise. This one hits a few different corners. It’s got Bad Brains on one end and the Stones on the other, with Crue, Slayer and Maiden in between – and the crazy thing is it all works. I hope people enjoy the spirit, music and fun that went into this.”
Guitarist Josh Rand adds: “To stay true to the original recordings of these songs, we tried to recreate the sounds and tones that the original artist used. This was both fun and challenging, but the end result was worth all the hard work everyone put in. I feel that with the diversity of the songs that the band has covered, it will definitely impact us on the next Stone Sour release.”
