Slipknot’s vocalist Corey Taylor recently shared some tough news for fans of his side project Stone Sour. According to Taylor, who fronted the American rockers from 2002 until now, Stone Sour “has kinda run its course for now.”

Things looked good for Stone Sour in recent years, with the band releasing their sixth studio album Hydrograd in 2017 and following that up with live LP Hello, You Bastards: Live in Reno last year. However, it appears this will be all for now as Taylor confirmed that the group is on “indefinite hiatus” during his appearance on Neil Griffiths’ podcast The Green Room.

“I feel like Stone Sour has kinda run its course for now,” said Taylor. “We all talked as a band and decided to kinda put Stone Sour in indefinite hiatus. That’s the way it is.”

Corey Taylor hinted this kind of outcome back in June when he said that the Stone Sour bandmembers are” focused on kind of doing our own thing.”

For Taylor, that thing was his debut solo album CMFT. The record will be out on October 2nd and will feature some new songs, but also tracks that he has written in his teens.
