Stone Sour Announce Auckland Show this August

In celebration of their highly anticipated album 'Hyrdrograd', American heavy-metal rocker, Stone Sour, has announced their long-awaited Auckland show this August.

Hydrograd features the lead tracks 'Fabuless' and 'Song no. 3'. 'Fabuless' is joined by an official music video, directed by Paul Brown, which is streaming now on Stone Sour’s official YouTube channel. The album will be released worldwide on June 30.

Fans are looking forward to seeing the charismatic Corey Taylor (Slipknot) perform again along with the full band: Josh Rand (guitar), Roy Mayorga (drums), Johny Chow (bass), and Christian Martucci (guitar). Kiwi fans last witnessed the raw power of the band during their 2013 show where they played with one of the musical icons, Linkin Park.

Stone Sour unleashed their eponymous debut album in 2002 and was immediately confirmed as one of the most remarkable hard rock outfits of the 21st Century. Stone Sour earned RIAA gold certification while singles 'Get Inside' and 'Inhale' each received Grammy Award nominations for 'Best Metal Performance'. With the course of their career, the band has sold more than four million albums worldwide over the course of five full-length releases.

Come What(ever) May followed in 2006 and proved an even greater accomplishment with a Top 5 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 and a no. 1 entry onto Billboard’s Rock Albums Chart. The acclaimed album spawned still another Grammy-nominated single in '30/30-150'. Stone Sour’s most recent all-original releases, the monumental House of Gold & Bones – Part 1 and House of Gold & Bones – Part 2 both made Top 10 debuts on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon their 2012 and 2013 arrivals.

Known far and wide as a truly incendiary live act, Stone Sour has built an international fan following through countless headline tours, multi-artist caravans, and performances at such famed festivals as Rock In Rio and the UK’s Download Festival.

This definitely a show you wouldn't want to miss!
