Corey Taylor unleashes 'X-M@$' single

corey_taylor_34627
The inimitable COREY TAYLOR, frontman of not one, but two multi-million-selling bands in STONE SOUR and SLIPKNOT, and sometime solo artist, is to release his first solo single, titled ‘X-M@$’ through Roadrunner Records on 12th December.
 
So what’s the story with one of the rock genre’s most revered frontmen and a Christmas single?
Corey explains as follows: “I wrote this song in my kitchen one winter, listening to people bitch about the holidays.  Personally, I love the holidays, but they seem to bring on severe stress in most people.  So, I wrote this in honour of crotchety, drunken bastards who don't know the difference between a yuletide and a toolshed.  Plus, I think it's funny.  I bet the UK will too.  They're some of my favourite people in the world.”
Last month, when a gap arose during the recent Stone Sour UK tour, Corey hot-footed it over to Metropolis Studios in Chiswick, West London, and tracked the tune in a single afternoon.  The lyrics showcase Corey’s sense of humour and irreverence in full force, dispensing a fat dose of jocular stick-poking at those who loathe the holiday season.  However, Taylor’s joviality doesn’t stop with the song words, as he even drops a sneaky ‘Hi Simon!!’ in the single’s fade-out, as a nod to Mr Cowell and his Xmas-hijacking X-Factor squad.
Check out a stream of the track here: http://snd.sc/gQOrv6 You’ll be able to pick up ‘X-M@$’ from all leading digital retailers, including i-Tunes, Amazon.co.uk and Play.com.   Corey has decided to donate proceeds from the Christmas sales to Teenage Cancer Trust.
Meanwhile, Corey’s been steering the good ship STONE SOUR around Europe, following a 10-date sold-out UK run that took in Glasgow’s SECC arena, Birmingham’s NIA and culminated in two nights at London’s famous Hammersmith Apollo.  Whilst in town, Roadrunner Records presented the band with gold discs for last album, ‘Come What(ever) May’, whilst new album, ‘Audio Secrecy’, which debuted on the UK album chart at No.6 on its release in September, continues to motor off the shelves.  The video for current single, ‘Digital (Did You Tell)’ can be seen on all decent music TV channels now.
 
Look out for the video for ‘X-M@$’ and an interview with COREY TAYLOR about the single at www.roadrunnerrecords.co.uk from 6th December.
