Corey Taylor: Stone Sour is on ‘Indefinite Hiatus’

Saying the band has “run its course,” Corey Taylor has revealed Stone Sour is on “indefinite hiatus.”

In an announcement made Monday, the Slipknot frontman says the decision to pull the plug on his side band was a mutual one. “We all talked as a band and decided to kind of put Stone Sour on indefinite hiatus,” Taylor says. “That’s the way it is. We’ve put it on the shelf for now. Everybody’s kind of going and doing their own thing.”

In what’s likely no coincidence, Taylor is less than two months away from releasing his solo debut.

How similar is Stone Sour and Slipknot? Could music from Corey Taylor, Slipknot and Stone Sour exist in the same world?
