Stone Sour & Papa Roach
With the two bands currently selling out multiple shows together across Europe, Grammy-nominated rock bands Stone Sour and Papa Roach will head out on a U.S. co-headline tour in January 2013. Stone Sour, currently in the midst of a tour across five continents, will close out every show.
Stone Sour has the #1 Active Rock track in the country for the second week in a row with “Absolute Zero” which Billboard Magazine calls “A ruthless hard rocker, the track pummels the listener in the gut…" They released House of Gold & Bones Part 1, the first installment of their two album series, House of Gold & Bones, on Roadrunner Records, October 22, 2012; it debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 album charts. House of Gold & Bones Part 2 will be released spring 2013. Recorded at Sound Farm Studios just outside of the band's native Des Moines, Iowa with producer David Bottrill (Tool, Muse) at the helm, the album has met with early rave reviews worldwide: "by far the most accomplished album of Stone Sour's career. Depth, emotion and spirit seem to infuse everything. 2013 has 'Stone Sour' written all over it." - 4Ks - Kerrang! (UK)
The gold-selling Iowa hard rock outfit has sold over four million albums worldwide over the course of three full-length releases. Their self-titled debut and sophomore effort Come What(ever) May both were certified Gold, while 2010's Audio Secrecy debuted at #6 on the Billboard Top 200. Their arsenal includes "Absolute Zero", as well as previous number one singles "Through Glass," "Say You'll Haunt Me" and "Bother".
