Stone Sour Construct House-Like Packaging for New Albums
Leave it to Corey Taylor to go big with his latest vision. The Stone Sour singer just continued his dedication to the ambitious 'House of Gold & Bones' double-album by introducing intricate packaging for the two releases, which when put together forms the shape of a house.
Fans will be able to get the first part this week when 'House of Gold & Bones, Pt. 1' arrives in stores, but it will take the second part, which isn't due until next spring, to complete the house-shaped packaging. While we have to wait to construct the full 'House of Gold & Bones,' Stone Sour has posted a trailer to show their fans how it will all fit together. The clip can be seen below.
On top of the double disc, fans can look for a four-issue comic book. The comic book series debuts April 17, 2013 through Dark Horse Comics. Taylor also recently stated that he's interested in creating two films to represent each record.
Stone Sour will hit the road to support both releases, but the band is starting their run outside of the U.S. Aside from two Halloween week shows (Oct. 28 and 29) at Wooly's in Taylor's hometown of Des Moines, the trek will span through Mexico, South America, and Europe for the remainder of the year. Stone Sour will kick off 2013 taking part in Australia's Soundwave Festival. North American dates are expected to follow, but have yet to be announced.
