Just what the world needs.
A cover album from Stone Sour.
It’ll be called Meanwhile In Burbank and drums for it are now being tracked in the Burbank, California-based studio of the group’s drummer, Roy Mayorga.
Hence, the title.
No word yet on what covers will appear on the disc.
But let’s hope the band does at least one Slipknot cover.
Word of the cover album was broken on Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta’s official podcast, “The Jasta Show.”
Corey Taylor was on and said:
“We’ve been talking about [recording a collection of covers] forever. I mean, this is something that we’ve been talking about since the first album came out, with Stone Sour. We’ve always wanted to do this. Even as people have come, people have gone, this is still something we’ve always come back to, and we just never had the opportunity to do it. And we just kind of said, ‘Well, screw it.’
“Roy’s been slowly but surely kind of building his house studio. So we just started doing it like that — fucking low dough, and it sounds killer. There’s no fucking pressure. You’re just having fun. You’re going back to these songs that you just love to listen to, not only just sing. And that’s why it’s called ‘Meanwhile In Burbank’, because, without giving too much away, that’s where Roy lives — he lives in the Valley — so that’s why we call it that. Because it’s, like, that’s what we’re doing right now.”
I’d rather drink a bucket of Gary Busey’s vomit.
