  • Stone Sour & Halestorm

    Encana Events Centre - Dawson Creek
    Stone Sour and Halestorm will be joined by special guests The Dead Deads on Monday, January 29, 2018 at the Encana Events Centre in Dawson Creek, BC. Tickets will be available for purchase on Friday, November 17 at 10 a.m. MST. Tickets are priced at $59.00 plus applicable fees. Tickets may be purchased online at www.tigerboxofficeplus.ca by phone at 1-877-339-8499, and in person at the Tiger Box Office Plus locations at the Encana Events Centre. It’s almost unbelievable that 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of Stone Sour’s formation, and that Hydrograd represents a new peak in such an extensive career. “We’ve done a lot, we’ve come a long way,” says Corey Taylor, reflecting on his band’s accomplishments. “You’re definitely humbled by the fact that so many people around the world support and love you, that’s a gift. I’m proud of our history, but I’m not really tethered to it. “I’m always thinking about what’s next, what’s the next great song I get to write and record with these guys? I’m not ready to turn around, because I’m still pointed in the direction of the future.” “Our only real idea was to make a kick-ass rock and roll album,” says Corey Taylor, lead singer of Stone Sour. “Let’s lean back, let the songs do the talking, and make the best rock and roll playlist, mix tape, that’s ever been made. That was the only thing we held to, and everything after that was so fucking easy.” And with this attitude, the band came up with the fifteen songs on Hydrograd, displaying a range of sounds and styles that Taylor describes as “a real coming-out party for Stone Sour.” It’s not like the band is starting from zero—its five previous albums have sold more than two million copies, and earned them nine Top Ten Mainstream Rock singles (including ”Bother” and “Through Glass,” which were certified gold and platinum respectively) and three Grammy nominations. But this time around, Stone Sour—Taylor, guitarists Josh Rand and Christian Martucci, bassist Johny Chow, and drummer Roy Mayorga—expands into new musical territory with supercharged impact. Hydrograd delivers the heavy, thunderous, metal-edged stuff usually associated with Stone Sour—songs like “Whiplash Pants” and “Taipei Person/Allah Tea” are full of what Taylor calls “combustible moments.” But other tracks—like “Mercy,” “Song #3,” and “Thank God It’s Over”—are more straight-up rock and roll, still aggressive but built on solid melodies and hooks. “Those songs sound like if Alice in Chains grew up on the Sunset Strip,” says the singer, who won the 2013 Revolver Golden Gods award for Best Vocalist. “We’ve been talking about getting back to that big hard rock for years, but we really embraced it. Everybody mistook that we’re a metal band that plays rock and roll, when it’s really the other way around.” Hydrograd concludes with the sweeping, Pink Floydian ambition of “When the Fever Broke,” based on music written by Rand. “In the studio, I played piano and we used this cool effect to get it out of standard vibe, which triggered all these cool sonic ideas,” says Taylor. “We wanted an epic feel, wanted it to resolve at the end with this idea that nobody ever really goes home, so you’ve got to hold it closely in your heart.” Widely acknowledged as one of modern hard rock’s most explosive live acts, Grammy Award winning band Halestorm recently released their third studio album INTO THE WILD LIFE. Recorded last year in Nashville with GRAMMY®-nominated producer Jay Joyce (Cage The Elephant, Eric Church) at the helm, “INTO THE WILD LIFE” is highlighted by the historic new single, “Apocalyptic.” The track recently ascended to the top at Active Rock radio outlets nationwide in an astounding 9 weeks – the first time a female-fronted band has scored #1 hits at the format three times as well as the first to have #1 songs from two consecutive albums. Furthermore, “Apocalyptic” has hit #1 at Mainstream Rock radio, marking Halestorm as the fourth-ever female-led act to top the format more than once. As if that weren’t enough, the song’s electrifying companion video has drawn over 2 million individual views thus far at Halestorm’s official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PXkCAiV0Ww. A new companion video for “Amen,” the next single from “INTO THE WILD LIFE,” recently debuted at RollingStone.com (www.rollingstone.com/music/videos/watch-halestorm-rebel-against-day-jobs-in-raucous-amen-video-20150302). Directed by DJay Brawner (Ed Sheeran, Panic! At The Disco), the provocative clip has surpassed 1.5 million views at www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGchlqCjj8A. In addition to its extraordinary popular success, “INTO THE WILD LIFE” has also begun receiving unprecedented critical acclaim. “(The album) is a different beast altogether,” declared veteran rock journalist Jon Wiederhorn at Yahoo! Music, “one that forsakes everything that has worked for Halestorm thus far (slick production, traditional songwriting arrangements, a radio-ready mix of rockers and ballads) and takes a leap into the unknown… The risk of following its instincts has paid off.”
