Sky is the limit for Stone Sour as they have always been pushing themselves even more than in the past for every album. Around four years after burning the chart with 2006 "Come What (ever) May", they returned with a broadened range, a deepened perspective and the determination to make new album they could be proud of.

The result is "Audio Secrecy" which presented something different from their previous works. "It's heavy, it's melodic, it's dark, it's slow, it's light and it's beautiful. You'll hear something different with each listen," frontman Corey Taylor said of their third and newly-released studio effort.

The album was released in the United States on September 7. It debuted at No. 6 on Billboard Hot 200 and has its lead single "Say You'll Haunt Me" which talked about Taylor's rocky relationship with his wife reaching No. 1 on Billboard Rock Songs and Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks.

Still, the Grammy-nominated band are humbled by the continuing success of their music career. "I'm not trying to change the world, I just want to make music and get some shit off my chest," Taylor who is also a member of Slipknot said with smiles. "But at the end of the day, I hope people dig this record."

"I hope they grab onto something that they want to sing all day. I hope it gets them excited. I hope it makes them think and I hope it makes them want to start their own bands. I hope it makes them happy and most important of all, I hope they feel that it was worth the wait."
