Speaking on the band’s first official live release, guitarist Josh Rand says,
“It’s with great pleasure that I get to announce the first ever official Stone Sour live record release. This is the Reno show in its entirety, just how it went down on October 5th, 2018. We’re extremely proud of the fact that it’s 100% live with absolutely no overdubs! It’s not perfect but neither are we. As a collector myself, I wanted this limited edition release to be very special. The vinyl is pressed on 180g, giving you the best audio quality possible, and is limited to 2500 copies worldwide. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did playing it.”
‘Hello, You Bastards: Live In Reno’ Tracklisting
STONE SOUR unleashed their eponymous debut album in 2002 and were immediately acknowledged as one of the most significant new hard rock outfits of the 21st century when the release earned RIAA gold certification and singles Get Inside and Inhale each received GRAMMY® Award nominations for ‘Best Metal Performance.’ Come What(ever) May followed in 2006, making an even bigger splash, debuting on the Top 5 debut of the SoundScan/Billboard 200, plus a #1 entry on Billboard’s ‘Rock Albums’ chart. The acclaimed collection spawned yet another GRAMMY®-nominated single in 30/30-150, whilst stacking up another RIAA gold certification. Come What(ever) May birthed a series of rock radio classics, including Sillyworld, Made of Scars, the #1 hit, Through Glass, which spent seven weeks atop Billboard’s ‘Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks,’ while also reaching #2 on ‘Alternative Songs’ and a Top 40 slot on the overall ‘Hot 100.’ The song’s companion video is also a fan favourite, with over 72 million views to date on YouTube alone.
STONE SOUR’s 2012 sister LPs, the colossal House of Gold & Bones – Part 1 and House of Gold & Bones – Part 2, both made Top 10 debuts on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 just six months adrift of each other.
