Stone Sour's sixth album Hydrograd is officially four weeks away and what better way to celebrate than with the release of a new single!
Listen to “Taipei Person/Allah Tea” below!
Hydrograd hits on June 30 through Roadrunner Records. Pre-orders for the record, Stone Sour's sixth full-length release, are available here.
As reported by Blabbermouth, Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor says that Hydrograd represents the band's best material yet:
“It is the best stuff that we've ever written. It's got a lot of different directions, but at its core it's very hard rock, almost in a modern/classic sense. There are some hints of punk in there. There's some cool hard rock/heavy metal. There's just all of these really cool elements that we've never maybe allowed ourselves to kind of go to.”
Taylor also recently revealed where the unique name of Hydrograd came from, citing a rushed trip through the airport where he thought he saw the word.
“So my brain is trying to do geometry while also at a sprint because I don't wanna miss my plane. I pass one and I look up and I could have swore it said 'Hydrograd.' And I kept running for a second and I was, like, 'Hydrograd? Where the hell is Hydrograd? What?'”
So while the word is madeup, this amazing new single definitely isn't. Listen to “Taipei Person/Allah Tea” below and tell us what you think!
