Stone Sour Give “Do Me a Favor” Live Debut in Tucson [VIDEO]
Stone Sour, sitting in between the release of ‘House of Gold and Bones, Part 1” (released in October 2012) and House of Gold and Bones, Part 2 (set for release on April 9th), decided to give a little taste of the upcoming release to the crowd at their Tucson, Arizona show on April 12th.
Not only did the crowd get to hear the band play their new single “Do Me a Favor” live for the first time, it also gave Stone Sour fans a chance to hear the band’s new bassist, Johny Chow (Cavalera Conspiracy and Soulfly).
Check out the fan shot video of “Do Me a Favor” live here:
Now the official lyric video:
Part 2 is much darker, if I’m honest. Aside from it being a completely different album, it feels more like a soundtrack to a movie in a lot of ways man. It’s really thematic, there are themes from part 1 that reveal themselves and that come again musically, there’s actually stuff from Part 2 that you’ll hear that’s on part 1 and you’ll be like ‘Fucking hell!’ We essentially recorded these, and this is where technology is now, that so you could have these in a playlist on your iTunes and play them top to fucking bottom and really get that experience while you read both parts.
So it’s some of our darkest music, our most intricate and complex music, some of the best fucking lyrics I’ve ever written to be honest, even writing from a narrative like that, it was so challenging. Plus, it’s got some of our best songs on it. You guys think Part 1’s good, fuck off, ‘Do Me A Favour’ alone is going to kick the shit out of people and that’s going to be the first single which comes out in January, that’s going to be the first taste that people get of Part 2, and people aren’t going to know what to do.
Stone Sour wrap up their U.S. tour Sunday (2/17) and are headed to Australia, New Zealand, and Japan, before they play a one-off date at Rock on the Range on May 18th.
