Stone Sour will celebrate HYDROGRAD with an epic summer trek alongside fellow Roadrunner recording group Korn. “The Serenity of Summer Tour” gets underway June 16th at Salt Lake City, UT’s USANA Amphitheatre and then travels through early August. Presented by Live Nation, support throughout the eclectic tour comes from Babymetal, Skillet, Yelawolf, Islander and Ded. For complete details and ticket availability, please visit www.stonesour.com. Stone Sour will also headline the sold-out official Rock On The Range Kick-Off Party, set for May 18th at Columbus, OH’s EXPRESS LIVE, as well as additional headliner and festival slots this summer (see tour itinerary attached).

Stone Sour unleashed their eponymous debut album in 2002 and was immediately confirmed as one of the most significant hard rock outfits of the 21st century. The self-titled release earned RIAA gold certification while singles “Get Inside” and “Inhale” each received GRAMMY® Award nominations for “Best Metal Performance.”

COME WHAT(EVER) MAY followed in 2006 and proved an even greater accomplishment with a top 5 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 and a #1 entry onto Billboard’s “Rock Albums” chart. The acclaimed album spawned still another GRAMMY®-nominated single in “30/30-150” on its own way to RIAA gold certification. COME WHAT(EVER) MAY unleashed a series of rock radio classics, including “Sillyworld,” “Made of Scars,” the #1 hit, “Through Glass,” which spent seven weeks atop Billboard’s “Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks” while also reaching #2 on “Alternative Songs” and the top 40 on the overall “Hot 100.” The song’s companion video was also a favorite, now with over 44 million individual views at YouTube alone.

Stone Sour’s most recent all-original releases, the monumental HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES – PART 1 and HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES – PART 2, both made top 10 debuts on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 just six months apart from one another – the band’s third and fourth consecutive top 10 chart entries. The two-part concept album yielded a string of multi-format rock radio hits, including the top 5 favorites “Absolute Zero,” “Do Me A Favor,” and “Tired,” the latter of which ascended to #1 at Mainstream Rock outlets nationwide.

2015 saw the arrival of STRAIGHT OUTTA BURBANK, an unprecedented EP in which Stone Sour take on five immortal songs originally performed by such iconic artists as Bad Brains, Iron Maiden, The Rolling Stones, Mötley Crüe, and Slayer. The EP is highlighted by a stunning rendition of The Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter” featuring distinctive guest vocals from Lzzy Hale of Atlantic recording group Halestorm, STRAIGHT OUTTA BURBANK is available now at all DSPs and streaming services.

Known far and wide as a truly incendiary live act, Stone Sour has built an international fan following through countless headline tours, multi-artist caravans, and performances at such famed festivals as Rock In Rio and the UK’s Download Festival.

Stone Sour is: Corey Taylor (vocals), Josh Rand (guitar), Roy Mayorga (drums), Johny Chow (bass), and Christian Martucci (guitar).

“The most exciting thing that I’d seen recently”
Slash, February, 2015

BABYMETAL–the Japan-based all-girl-fronted “Kawaii Metal” (mix of J-Pop Idol and Heavy Metal) group–has signed with RAL/Sony Music Entertainment for the U.S. release of their 2014 critically acclaimed self-titled debut album. The album’s re-release will feature two bonus tracks (cover art and tracklisting below) and be available digitally on Tuesday, May 12 and physically on Tuesday, June 16.

Says Bill Richards, VP of Marketing at RAL/Sony Music Entertainment: “After witnessing the band’s sold-out New York show, we knew we wanted to be involved. The core metal fans and metal press seem to get BABYMETAL, which shows how the language of music transcends boundaries. They hit all the entertainment buttons and are really fun to watch.”

Since forming in 2010, BABYMETAL–the young trio of 17-year-old SU-METAL (Vocal, Dance) and 15-year-olds YUIMETAL (Scream, Dance)and MOAMETAL (Scream, Dance), backed by a four-piece band packing a heavy metal arsenal–have already achieved two major debut singles: “IJIME, DAME, ZETTA!” and “MEGISTUNE,both of which ranked in the Top 10 Oricon Chart in Japan. Their first studio album BABYMETAL also earned the #1 spot on Japan’s album chart and Billboard’s World Album Chart The official live music video for their debut album’s lead single “Gimme Chocolate!!” has garnered over 24.5 million views on YouTube. Click here to check out the video. Now the band will re-release their chart-topping debut album via RAL/Sony Music Entertainment.

2014 saw BABYMETAL headline numerous sold-out shows from New York to London, including the 20,000 capacity Saitama Super Arena in Japan. They performed at major festivals in multiple countries such as the UK’s massive Sonisphere in front of 65,000 festival-goers and supported Lady Gaga on her “Artrave: The Artpop Ball” tour. The band will gear up for an equally busy 2015 when they kick off their “THE DARK KNIGHTS BEGIN” WORLD TOUR 2015 on May 9 in Mexico City (full tour itinerary below). U.S. tour dates included a special one-off headlining show on May 14 at House Of Blues in Chicago, IL, followed by a festival appearance on May 16 at Rock on the Range in Columbus, OH. BILLBOARD.com’s live review of BABYMETAL’s 11/4 debut New York concert noted, ”The girls slayed New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom… playing a high-energy set…packed full of non-stop singing, dancing and shredding.”

Here’s a sample of the praise BABYMETAL has received so far:

“…the most polarizing band of 2014.”
LOUDWIRE.com, January 7, 2015

“…[Babymetal] embraces metal’s most enduring and endearing tenets — fantasy, escapism, theatrics, bombast and sheer volume — and that solid, skillfully played metal foundation cleverly grounds a wildly eclectic sound that incorporates elements from trance to synth-pop, to dubstep, to reggae, to J-pop at its most manic and overtly ‘cute.’ It’s also brilliantly self-referential, the group’s manga-style fantasy storyline involving some wonderful parodies of metal’s ‘Big Four’ of Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, and Megadeth.”
Adrien Begrand, NPR, September 4, 2014

“Their songs are a delirious mix of thrash, death and power metal with candy-pink J-pop melodies spread like frosting atop all the violence. Not even the most dedicated black-metal purist could deny that Babymetal’s tracks are played with the same skill and ferocity as their genre contemporaries…Babymetal is perhaps the genre’s most brilliant and welcomed send-up yet…Babymetal is just about the only metal group sticking with the mission of the genre — freaking people out and putting on a hell of a spectacle.”
August Brown, LOS ANGELES TIMES, July 29, 2014

“Musically, they are as heavy and sharp as any modern metal band. Vocally?…[Babymetal] is so deliciously alien and peculiar, not to mention delivered with joyous enthusiasm… there is something very clever and lovable about Babymetal’s back-story and the mystique that surrounds those who put the music together… the whole thing works so brilliantly because it has side-stepped all the usual considerations in favour of the wholesale creation of a unique and fully formed world of its own.”
– Dom Lawson, METAL HAMMER, September 2014 

“I think is important to acknowledge evolutionary steps in Metal. Early innovators and pioneers in many genres were at first questioned or even mocked and ridiculed. From all the way back to where two nice, quiet Jewish boys from New York put on make-up and breathed fire and spit blood (Kiss), to space monsters from the Antaractica (GWAR), to Italian guys mixing 80’s Speed Metal with Hollywood film-score soundtracks (Rhapsody), to pagan Finnish dudes mixing folk music with Metal (Korpiklaani), there have been important bands and benchmarks where we can almost track a new sub-genre back to one single band or point in time. BabyMetal is one of those evolutionary steps…I believe this is an important album.
– JP Wood, METAL-RULES.com, June 2014

“Babymetal are the next big thing!…Babymetal are absolutely incredible! I haven’t been this excited about a new metal act in a looooong time. I was initially completely baffled and even averse to the concept, but I’ve come to embrace it over time and you should too.”
– Vince Neilstein, METALSUCKS.net, July 18, 2014

“…they are unlike any other band you have ever been exposed to ever before. They combine…high-concept…Asian pop with instrumentation that wouldn’t sound out of place on the slickest record Slipknot never made. By all human logic, this shouldn’t work in the least, but it does, completely and unequivocally, through both the machinations of the J-Pop machine as well as the sheer force of their own weird.”
– Drew Millard, NOISEY.com, March 4, 2014
