Stone Sour has announced a spring headlining tour with support on select dates from Palaye Royale, The Bronx and ’68.
The trek will include appearances at several festivals in the U.S. If all goes according to plan, the month-long run will mark the return of guitarist Josh Rand, who last performed with the group in January before he entered treatment for unspecified issues. It is not clear whether Rand is being treated for a medical issue or problems with substance or alcohol abuse.
Stone Sour is touring in support of its sixth studio effort, Hydrograd, which came out at the end of June and features the chart-topping rock radio hit “Song #3.” The latest track issued from the disc is “Rose Red Violent Blue.”
The band will also support Ozzy Osbourne on the initial North American leg of his “No More Tours 2” tour, which kicks off August 30th in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
