Corey Taylor’s “other” band Stone Sour performed an hour’s set at the Rock In Rio festival on September 24th. The entire set was filmed for a TV broadcast, capturing the band in fine form.
Behind the kit is ex-Dream Theater man Mike Portnoy, substituting for Stone Sour’s regular sticksman Roy Mayorga, who was on leave at the time of the performance, awaiting the birth of a new baby.
The performance comes at a busy time for the band. They already have firm plans to release a live DVD in 2012, as well as a covers EP, though at the time of writing, the tracklist remains undecided.
Earlier in September, reports began to emerge regarding Stone Sour’s next full project. According to frontman Corey Taylor, the new material is “very dark”, possibly combining musical aspects of the band’s first three albums and “might turn into a double album”.
STONE SOUR – Rock In Rio setlist:
Digital (Did You Tell)
