Stone Sour fans can expect the second installment of the band's concept double album to be a bit different from the first. Frontman Corey Taylor says that the band explores some new creative avenues on House of Gold and Bones Part 2 .
“I think [ Part 2 is] darker,” he tells ABC News Radio. “I think it’s a lot more complex, it’s more intricate, it’s some of our more orchestral type of writing. There’s some really heavy bits on it but there’s some very dark, melancholy, sad bits on it.”
The singer adds that while the music from the upcoming album will be different, fans can expect the concept album’s storyline to continue where it left off on Part 1 . “[ Part 2 is] a completely different autonomous album,” he explains. “There’s certain themes that kind of come back and obviously the other characters, but musically, Part 2 feels more like a movie soundtrack than Part 1 does.”
Taylor notes that fans will get their first taste of songs from Part 2 during their co-headlining tour with Papa Roach , which kicks off on January 20 at the Sands Bethlehem Events Center in Bethlehem, PA. “We’re just doing selections [from House of Gold and Bones ],” he reveals about the upcoming trek. “We’ll probably start adding a couple of songs actually from Part 2 …that they can kinda take with them.”
