The Stone Sour news comes as part of a big day for Taylor. His other band, Slipknot, finally revealed the details of their 'Antennas to Hell' greatest hits collection. The set arrives July 24, and comes in the midst of their headlining run on the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival. The band will finish out the summer with their own two-date, two-location Knotfest.
