American hard rock group Stone Sour were formed out of Des Moines, Iowa in 1992. They had a rocky start, spending five years trying to make the big time before giving up and going their separate ways in '97. In 2000 they reunited with their debut self-titled album. The album did well, charting at number 46 in the Billboard 200, with the single 'Bother' earning them the most attention after its inclusion in the soundtrack for 'Spider-Man' and earning a number two position on the Mainstream Rock Charts. They also earned themselves two Grammy nominations off the back of 'Stone Sour' for the singles 'Get Inside' and 'Inhale'. 'Come What(ever) May' came in 2006, along with a couple of personnel changes, and the band celebrated their first top five album on the Billboard 200. After spending almost two years touring the world, they put out their third album 'Audio Secrecy'. After the departure of bassist Shawn Economaki, the band started work on their fourth album. The album ended up being split into two - 'House of Gold & Bones - Part 1' and 'House of Gold & Bones - Part 2' - released in 2012 and 2013 respectively. They brought in Johny Chow of Fireball Ministry as a touring bassist and they parted ways with guitarist James Root citing creative differences. 'Meanwhile in Burbank' and 'Straight Outta Burbank' were two EPs of cover songs that they released in 2014 and 2015. The EPs featured 'We Die Young' by Alice in Chains, Black Sabbath's 'Children of the Grave' and Iron Maiden's 'Running Free'. Their sixth full-length album 'Hydrograd' was announced for 2017.
