“The guys are writing tons of music and I’ve written lyrics to almost all of it,” Taylor said. “We’re going to start trying to put together demos here and there with the time off that I have and really try to get ahead of the curve as far as what happens next.”
Word from the other band members like Shawn “Clown” Crahan is that so far there is an excess of written material that is shaping up to be “really dark.”
Meanwhile, Taylor, is still intensely working on projects with Stone Sour, including touring for the rest of the year, touring with Ozzy Osbourne and “some cool things that we’re doing creatively that we can’t give away too quickly.”
Stone Sour also released a new single from their latest album, Hydrograd,”St. Marie.” “St. Marie” is group-written track that is a departure from the group’s typical sound that exhibits what Taylor calls their “country side. A southwestern road trip-esque video was released alongside the song to further supplement the group’s new direction.
