STONE SOUR to release “Meanwhile In Burbank…” April 18th

April 10, 2015

Stone Sour will release “Meanwhile In Burbank…” on April 18th, a five-song “Record Store Day” exclusive EP featuring covers of legendary artists Black Sabbath, Metallica, KISS, Judas Priest & Alice In Chains.


“Meanwhile In Burbank…” track listing:

01. We Die Young (ALICE IN CHAINS cover)
02. Heading Out To The Highway (JUDAS PRIEST cover)
03. Love Gun (KISS cover)
04. Creeping Death (METALLICA cover)
05. Children Of The Grave (BLACK SABBATH cover)

Stone Sour guitarist Josh Rand commented on the EP: “Back in February of 2014 while Stone Sour was touring, Corey [Taylor, vocals] approached me about Stone Sour doing a cover of the Metal Church song ‘The Dark’ for the movie ‘Fear Clinic’. I thought it would be cool not only to record ‘The Dark’, but the five cover songs that we had played on that tour.” Rand added: “The idea was not to shy away from a song because it was popular or pick a band that most people might not have heard, but to pick ones that truly meant something to one of us at some point in our life.”

Corey Taylor said on “The Jasta Show” podcast about the record, “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.'”
