HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES PART 2, the new album from STONE SOUR, rocketed onto the charts this week, exceeding the strong first week sales of Part 1.  Part 1 arrived just six months ago and debuted at #7 on the album chart.  Now, Part 2 ups the ante, and in the process becomes the bands fourth consecutive album to debut in the Top 10.

HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES PART 2 is the second installment and conclusion to the group's House of Gold & Bones two-part concept album, which follows a linear storyline written by singer Corey Taylor.  The House Of Gold & Bones campaign is a multi-media approach: radio, touring, an accompanying comic series, online and video components, fan engagement campaigns, and much more.

About HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES PART 2, Revolver Magazine wrote, "Stone Sour deliver their best record yet with the second half to their ambitious concept double album." Loudwire proclaimed that "House of Gold & Bones Part 2 stands firmly on its own as one of early 2013′s best albums," while ArtistDirect hailed the collection as, "an epic for the ages and one of the greatest rock records of all time."  The lead single "Do Me A Favor" is currently #8 at Active Rock and climbing (Stone Sours last single "Absolute Zero" was #1 for 3 weeks).

News of the album's explosive arrival follows a flurry of recent headline-making moves for the multi-platinum band, who are currently headlining the "Revolver Road To The Golden Gods" tour with In This Moment and Hell or Highwater.  The tour is set to culminate with a performance from Stone Sour at the 5th Annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards presented by Epiphone®, on May 2nd at Los Angeles' Club Nokia, where they are nominated for three awards – "Best Vocalist," "Album of the Year" for House of Gold & Bones Pt. 1 and "Best Drummer" for Roy Mayorga.  For complete tour details and ticket information, please see  

Furthermore, the first issue of HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES (Dark Horse Comics) is available today.  Written by Corey Taylor, the comic book follows and expands on the story contained within the two part album, and features stunning covers from Jason Shawn Alexander (Empty Zone, Batman, Abe Sapien).  This limited four-issue series marks Taylor's debut in the comics genre. Copies of Issue #1 are available now via Dark Horse Comics' webstore.

Over the course of the past decade, Roadrunner Records recording artists Stone Sour has sold over four million albums worldwide and garnered three Grammy Award nominations.  Their self-titled debut and sophomore effort Come What(ever) May both exceeded Gold status while 2010's Audio Secrecy and 2012's House of Gold & Bones Part 1 debuted in the Top 10 on The Billboard 200.
