Corey Taylor has announced that Stone Sour will release a two-part double concept album over the next two years, titled 'House Of Gold And Bones'.
Taylor, who had previously tweeted the cryptic phrase 'HoGaB', unveiled the full details of the hugely ambitious project on his official Twitter page:
"I promised today you'd get the explanation to HoGaB. Well, today that's exactly what you get. The new Stone Sour album is a two-part double concept album called 'House of Gold and Bones' (HoGaB), parts 1 and 2. Part 1 will drop in October 2012. Part 2 will drop next year. 24 songs, 12 on each disc."
"Each disc will include one half of the story - for lyrics, you'll have to visit our site. Once I lock in the company who will help me put it together, there will be a comic book as well. Song titles include 'Absolute Zero', 'RU486', 'A Rumor Of Skin' and 'Taciturn'. Very excited for everyone to hear it! Stay tuned!"
Taylor's other band Slipknot have announced that they will release a new 'Best Of' compilation, 'Antennas To Hell', on July 23rd in the UK and July 24th in the US.
The 19 track album, which is comprised of tracks from across Slipknot's four studio albums as well as remixes and live cuts, also comes with package notes on their career, a CD of a live show at 2009's Download Festival and a series of video montages of Slipknot.
