Stone Sour has put together the second of it’s third Straight Outta Compton cover EP for Record Store Day’s Black Friday on November 27th. The set includes cover songs by Iron Maiden, The Rolling Stones, Motley Crue, Slayer and Bad Brains. Hailstorm’s Lzzy Hale is featured on the remake of the Stones’ “Gimme Shelter.”
“To stay true to the original recordings of these songs, we tried to recreate the sound and tones that the original artist used,” Josh Rand says in a statement. “This was both fun and challenging, but the end result was worth all the hard work everyone put into achieving it. I feel that with the diversity of the songs that the band has covered it will definitely impact us on the next Stone Sour release, but until then we hope you enjoy Straight Outta Burbank.”
The vinyl only release is available exclusively to independent record stores.
