Taylor posted the tweets yesterday, March 28, and from the videos below you can see that the rockers are playing in drummer Roy Mayorga’s Burbank studio Room 237 in California. Here is what the singer told about the upcoming release: “It’s kind of going in a different direction than the older stuff, a little more rock ‘n’ roll … expanding the range again. There’s stuff on the horizon, but I’ve got Slipknot until, call it June of next year. It’s going to be, kind of, where I can, filling in the blanks and getting everything ready for when that happens,” Taylor told Eddie Trunk.

Stone Sour’s previous records, House of Gold & Bones Part 1 and Part 2, released in 2012-2013, formed a conceptual double album. The upcoming full-length will be the first one not to include Slipknot guitarist Jim Root. Root recently exited the band in order to concentrate thoroughly on Slipknot’s new material. On tour he was replaced by Christian Martucci, who was confirmed as a permanent band member in March last year.

However, Taylor’s touring schedule with Slipknot won’t allow Stone Sour to jump on a tour this year, according to Blabbermouth. Stay tuned to find out more details on the band’s upcoming record.
