Corey Taylor Says Stone Sour Are On “Indefinite Hiatus”

Corey Taylor has just unleashed his debut solo project, CMFT, but it’s come with some not-so-great news for fans of his band Stone Sour.

According to the frontman, the metal act are currently on “indefinite hiatus” while he focuses on his new solo record and, of course, Slipknot.

“I feel like Stone Sour has kinda run its course for now,” CMFT told The Green Room with Neil Griffiths podcast.

“We all talked as a band and decided to kinda put Stone Sour in indefinite hiatus. That’s the way it is.”

“We’ve put it on the shelf for now,” Corey continued. “Everybody is kinda going and doing their own thing…”

In terms of what the immediate future holds in store, Corey says he plans to see through his COVID-sidelined touring commitments with Slipknot (hopefully that’ll mean a new Australian tour to replace their cancelled 2019 dates with Metallica) before touring the world with his new solo band (which FYI features Stone Sour guitarist Christian Martucci).

“Slipknot obviously is always gonna be the big dog, which is fine,” Taylor said.

“Once everything kinda comes back to life, I’ll be wrapping that up tour-wise but then after that I’m definitely hitting the road with the solo band to take this around the world and really show the world that other side of me.”

Taylor’s new solo album CMFT is set for release on Friday, 2nd October.
