Stone Sour and Avenged Sevenfold are gearing up for a co-headline UK tour in October, we can exclusively reveal.
Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor tells Kerrang! that the idea behind the trek is a direct reaction to the current trend of what he calls "watered down" bills.
"Tours in the past used to be huge events with different types of music," explains Taylor. "Lately, tours have become watered down with same sounding bands and same sounding songs. What we'll be offering is a great live and musical experience that will appeal to all different types of music lovers.
"I'm really looking forward to it!" he adds. "We last did some shows with Avenged in 2007 and we got to know them really well at that time."
Corey says that the bands are still looking for suitable opening acts for the tour which is set to kick off at the end of October.
"The other bands on the bill are yet to be determined, but I can promise you that I might wear pants," laughs the frontman, before adding, "there will be several pairs of pants throughout the tour."
