Hard rock bands can come from any city. Stone Sour is one American heavy metal band formed in Des Moines, Iowa in 1992, performing for five years, before disbanding in 1997. They reunited in 2000 and since 2006, the group has consisted of Corey Taylor (lead vocals, guitar), Josh Rand (guitar) and Roy Mayorga (drums).

Longtime members Joel Ekman (drums, percussion), Shawn Economaki (bass guitar), and Jim Root (guitar) left the group in 2006, 2011, and 2014 respectively.

The alternative metal group with former Slipknot members has been working hard to build momentum, a wild fan base and sell albums.

To date, Stone Sour has released six studio albums and they also released a digital live album, Live in Moscow, in 2007. [Full discography below.]

Stone Sour earned the group two Grammy Award nominations, both for Best Metal Performance, for the singles “Get Inside,” in 2003 and “Inhale,” in 2004. From their 2006 album, Come What(ever) May, the group received another Grammy Award nomination for Best Metal Performance for the single “30/30-150.” The album hit number four on the Billboard charts and spawned the successful single “Through Glass.”

The band has sold 2.1 million albums in the United States as of April 2017.

Their new album, Hydrograd was released in June 2017 and is their first album to feature guitarist Christian Martucci and bassist Johny Chow since each joined the band in 2014.
