Stone Sour Teams Up With Halestorm's Lzzy Hale For 'Gimme Shelter' Cover
STONE SOUR's next covers EP, "Straight Outta Burbank", will be released this month as part of Record Store Day's annual Black Friday bonanza. The effort will include cover versions of songs by BAD BRAINS, THE ROLLING STONES, SLAYER, MÖTLEY CRÜE and IRON MAIDEN. Making a guest appearance on STONE SOUR's rendition of THE ROLLING STONES classic "Gimme Shelter" is HALESTORM singer Lzzy Hale.
STONE SOUR guitarist Josh Rand told Rolling Stone: "To stay true to the original recordings of these songs, we tried to recreate the sounds and tones that the original artist used. This was both fun and challenging, but the end result was worth all the hard work everyone put into achieving it."
Added STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor: "I love 'Straight Outta Burbank', because it's a little bit further out there than 'Meanwhile in Burbank…' This one hits a few different corners: [it's] got BAD BRAINS on one end and the STONES on the other … and the crazy thing is it all works. I think that's a reflection of us as a band. We do what we want, style-wise, and it works. I hope people enjoy the spirit, music and fun that went into this."
