Stone Sour will release a 5 song covers ep on November 27th called STRAIGHT OUTTA BURBANK. They take on 5 classic and crunchy tunes from Bad Brains, Iron Maiden, The Rolling Stones, Mötley Crüe, and Slayer.
Corey Taylor says, “I love ‘Straight Outta Burbank’ because it’s a little bit further out there than ‘Meanwhile In Burbank… .’ The first EP was a little closer together style-wise. This one hits a few different corners: got Bad Brains on one end and the Stones on the other, with Crüe, Slayer and Maiden in between… and the crazy thing is it all WORKS. I think that’s a reflection of us as a band- we do what we want, style-wise and it WORKS. I hope people enjoy the spirit, music and fun that went into this.”
The Rolling Stones cut “Gimme Shelter” features Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale for the female vocal.
