Stone Sour fans have been patiently waiting after Corey Taylor recently teased something called ‘HoGaB,’ with details to be revealed in June. Their patience was rewarded Monday (June 11) when Taylor took to his Twitter account to reveal some of the details behind the band’s next release, which will be titled ‘House of Gold and Bones.’

The singer unveiled in a series of tweets, “I promised today you’d get the explanation to HoGaB. Well, today that’s exactly what you get … The new Stone Sour album is a two-part double concept album called ‘House of Gold and Bones’ (HoGaB), parts 1 and 2. Part 1 will drop in Oct. ’12. Part 2 will drop next year. 24 songs, 12 on each disc.”

He went on to add, “Each disc will include one half of the story – for lyrics, you’ll have to [visit] our site. Once I lock in the company who will help me put it together, there will be a comic book as well. Song titles include ‘Absolute Zero,’ ‘RU486,’ ‘A Rumor of Skin,’ and ‘Taciturn.’ Very excited for everyone to hear it! Stay tuned! #HoGaBoctober12″

Stone Sour worked with producer David Bottrill on the disc, and recruited Rachel Bolan of Skid Row fame to play bass on the disc in place of former member Shawn Economaki.

The Stone Sour news comes as part of a big day for Taylor. His other band, Slipknot, finally revealed the details of their ‘Antennas to Hell‘ greatest hits collection. The set arrives July 24, and comes in the midst of their headlining run on the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival. The band will finish out the summer with their own two-date, two-location Knotfest.
