Stone Sour Release Original Demo Of Get Inside
Stone Sour ended 2019 by releasing their first-ever live album Hello, You Bastards: Live In Reno, and they’re kicking off 2020 with some recently unearthed gems.
Sharing the track on YouTube, Stone Sour have posted the original demo version of Get Inside. The opening track to their self-titled debut album in 2002, Get Inside was the first track most people heard of Corey Taylor’s ‘other band’, and it remains a firm fan favourite.
“January 1, 2000. The first day of the new millennium,” begins Josh Rand, posting on YouTube.
“It was a homecoming show for Slipknot, and as Corey & myself sat at his grandma Thelma’s house waiting to leave for the show that night, we played each other music that we had separately been working on. These were songs that he had written outside of Slipknot, and songs that I had recorded at home on a 4 track. After we listened to all of the tracks, we decided that we needed to record these songs at SR Studios in Des Moines during his time off from touring. These sessions took place over the next year and became the Project X/SuperEgo demo.
“Most of the songs from those sessions ended up on the first Stone Sour album. The goal was not to have any musical boundaries; to play whatever we wanted regardless of what people might think.
“Here is the first version of Get Inside, the song that started it all.”
