Stone Sour Unleash New Song ‘Do Me a Favor’ With Lyric Video

Liz Ramanand, Loudwire Stone Sour know how to set a mood, and frontman Corey Taylor certainly does just that vocally within the new lyric video for the band’s latest single, ‘Do Me a Favor.’ The track is the first single off the band’s upcoming ‘ House of Gold & Bones Part 2 .’ The clip is set against the backdrop of a desolate landscape before finally directing the action inside a dilapidated house where the lyrics, and occasional silhouettes presumably of Taylor, come to light against a tattered wall. As we learned with ‘House of Gold & Bones, Part 1,’ the story centers on a person’s downward spiral and it feels as though lyrically the brutal nature of the character’s viewpoint is definitely intact on ‘Do Me a Favor.’ Taylor opens the song belting, “ I am an anti-everything man / A scab on the lips of the lord / My caustic dismissal / Is all I need to get you to fall on your sword ,” and he later offers the thought-provoking line, “ Ignoring your history is killing your past / You might run forever if death never lasts .” As for the chorus, the criticism comes harsh. The frontman sings, “ So do me a favor / Your behavior / Is just the reason there is no savior / When your wasted / Let’s face it / There’s a side of you that knows you’re a failure / Lives for the danger / Feels like an enemy / But looks like a stranger .” ‘House of Gold & Bones Part 2′ is set to drop on April 9, and ‘Do Me a Favor’ feels like the perfect transition from what we got on the first disc to lead into the second. The band is currently on tour in support of both ‘House of Gold & Bones’ discs.

Corey Taylor Says Slipknot Are ‘On Hiatus’

Mary Ouellette, Stone Sour just dropped their ‘ House of Gold & Bones Part 1 ‘ album and singer Corey Taylor is currently working on the second half of the release, so where does that leave his other band,  Slipknot ? The vocalist says that after touring the U.S. this past summer, things will scale back for the immediate future. He told Artisan News Service in a video interview (seen below), “We’re doing a couple of shows next year, but that’s about it right now. It’s on hiatus.” Taylor has also been plotting a comic book series and is contemplating turning the two albums into corresponding films. In other Corey Taylor news, the singer talks about his favorite tattoos in a new video clip, which can be seen below. The vocalist says of his general rule for getting tattoos, “There’s kind of a common theme of balance. You can’t have the good without the bad. You can’t have the light without the dark. For me, it’s been about having two ends of the spectrum.” Taylor picked the tattoos he has on each forearm as his favorites, with two recognizable celebrities that have served as inspirations getting the ink treatment. To see who they are and hear Taylor’s explanation as to why he got them tattooed, check out the video below.
