House of Gold and Bones Part 1 album cover
We now know more about the project Stone Sour is set to release. What will be two albums and a four comic book series coinciding with the new discs, House of Gold and Bones will feature lyrics and a story all written by front man Corey Taylor who says the story is “set in this crazy world where nothing's really what it seems, but at the center of it is really a concept about life and evolution and changes.” He says that the albums will act as a beginning dialog for the characters in the comic book. Taylor is working with artist Jason Shawn Alexander of Dark Horse on the comic book series. The first album comes out October 23nd with the second out sometime next year. The first comic book isn’t scheduled to be out until April 17th of next year.
