STONE SOUR’s COREY TAYLOR: More Details On Upcoming Covers EPs
Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has revealed more details about the next two EPs of cover songs they’re going to release.
During an appearance on a recent installment of the “Talk Is Jericho” podcast, Taylor said that the next two — titled “Straight Out Of Burbank” and “No Sleep ‘Till Burbank” — will feature five songs each, and will include new versions of tracks from the following artists:
“Straight Outta Burbank”
* BAD BRAINS
* THE ROLLING STONES
* MÖTLEY CRÜE
* IRON MAIDEN
“No Sleep ‘Till Burbank”
* VAN HALEN
* VIOLENT FEMMES
* RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE
Asked why Stone Sour decided to release three separate EPs of covers, Taylor said: “This is something we’ve been talking about for years. And we decided, instead of putting it all on one, and trying to make that work, we were, like, ‘Let’s have fun with it.’ It was kind of the same spirit of why we wanted to do ’em in the first place — is ’cause we wanted to have fun, just to kind of take the edge off, take the pressure off and just go in and have fun and kind of show the world what got us into making music in the first place. So we broke it up into three. That way, we could kind of play with the artwork, make it fun for the fans, and just have a good time with it. ‘Cause we’re making our nut on covers. But at the same time, when you do something like that, you wanna represent to the best of your ability. And by spacing it out and letting the fans get into five at a time, nothing gets lost in the shuffle. It just felt like by doing it that way, people would have time to digest each five before the next one comes on.”
Taylor is currently touring with his other band, Slipknot, and didn’t specify when the two covers EPs will be released.
