Stone Sour previously let it slip who would be replacing former bassist Shawn Economaki on the road. This past weekend, though, it was confirmed that Johny Chow of Cavalera Conspiracy and Fireball Ministry fame would indeed be taking on bass duties.
Guitarist Josh Rand confirmed the news via the following statement:
I am pleased to announce that Johny Chow will be playing bass guitar with Stone Sour on the House of Gold and Bones Parts 1 & 2 tour cycle. Johny is a fantastic player and a long-time friend of the band. We are all excited to have him be part of what will be our most exciting and ambitious album cycle yet.
All the best,
It remains unclear whether Chow will become a permanent member following the end of touring. However, we already knew that Skid Row’s Rachel Bolan plays bass on Stone Sour’s new album House Of Gold And Bones, part one coming out on October 23.
