  STONE SOUR ANNOUNCE UK TOUR INCLUDING SPECIAL LONDON SHOW WITH PAPA ROACH
21st August 2012



stone sour



Grammy nominated Iowa rock giants, Stone Sour, are thrilled to announce their first UK tour dates in two years.

The shows will be their first since the hugely successful 'Audio Secrecy' album cycle, which saw the band rack up gold album sales in the UK, headline the mammoth Download Festival's Stage 2, and sell-out a UK tour, including two nights at Hammersmith Apollo.

The tour comes hot on the heels of the release of the first part of their ambitious and expansive new album project, 'House of Gold & Bones'. The album concept is a two-disc beast with the initial CD - and first half of the 'story' - hitting stores on 22nd October and the concluding disc materialising next Spring. Further details are available at www.houseofgoldandbones.com, where you can also hear the album's lead tracks, 'Gone Sovereign' and 'Absolute Zero'.

Frontman and lyricist Corey Taylor, himself a Sunday Times best-selling novelist with last year's 'Seven Deadly Sins', wrote the lyrics for the 24 tracks that make up the 'House of Gold & Bones' as a linear storyline, that tells the tale of a character at a crossroads in his life. The release of 'Gone Sovereign' and 'Absolute Zero' is the initial part of an unveiling, which continues as the album cycles unfold. Music is just one medium that Stone Sour are using to tell the story that pins both albums together. Further elements will act as a companion to the music, for fans looking to fully immerse themselves in the 'House of Gold & Bones' experience.

Taylor is suitably excited to be returning across the pond with Stone Sour, stating; "It's gonna be awesome to bring the House of Gold and Bones to fans live. We've given people a taste of Part One, and now we're gonna bring them the best Stone Sour show they've ever seen! It begins soon. Get ready!"

Special guests at the London show only are the multi-platinum Papa Roach, who release their new album, 'The Connection' on 1st October.

In other hot Stone Sour news, the band have also been confirmed for Australia's touring Soundwave Festival which kicks off at the end of February 2013.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
