Stone Sour have tapped Cavalera Conspiracy bass slinger Johny Chow for their upcoming tour
Stone Sour fans will find a slightly different lineup when they check out the band in concert in the coming months. While frontman Corey Taylor, obviously, is still will the band, they’ve added a new bass player to the fold. Cavalera Conspiracy bass slinger Johny Chow will be out on the road with Stone Sour on their upcoming trek in support of their double album, “House of Gold & Bones.” The news comes from guitarist Josh Rand, who announced the change to their lineup via a message on the group’s Facebook page.
“I am pleased to announce that Johny Chow will be playing bass guitar with Stone Sour on the House of Gold and Bones Parts 1 & 2 tour cycle,” Rand stated. “Johny is a fantastic player and a long-time friend of the band. We are all excited to have him be part of what will be our most exciting and ambitious album cycle yet.”
Chow will take the place of Skid Row bass player Rachel Bolan, who laid down bass lines on Stone Sour’s “House of Gold & Bones” albums but wasn’t able to hit the road with Stone Sour because of prior commitments with Skid Row.
“House of Gold & Bones Part 1” is to out in stores on Oct. 23. The second part of the album series, “House of Gold & Bones Part 2,” is slated to arrive sometime in 2013.
