Mercy Side B 01. Rose Red Violent Blue 02. The Witness Trees A trailer for "Hydrograd Acoustic Sessions" can be seen below. For more information on Record Store Day 2018 participating stores, go to this location. "Hydrograd" was recorded at Sphere Studios in North Hollywood, California with producer Jay Ruston, who has previously worked with ANTHRAX and STEEL PANTHER. STONE SOUR guitarist Josh Rand revealed in a statement issued on Sunday (April 15) that he sought treatment earlier this year for "an alcohol and Xanax dependency" which forced him to sit out the band's last tour. Rand wrote: "As many of you may already know, in January of this year I made the difficult decision to step away from the Canadian leg of the STONE SOUR tour. "I hit a personal breaking point and it was imperative that I address it." Rand continued: "My high anxiety and desire to feel comfortable in my own skin over the years led to an alcohol and Xanax dependency. That, along with aggression issues, made me feel miserable and I just could not continue to live that way. Thankfully, with the support of my band, family, and friends I was able to come home and seek help. Now [three months later], I'm doing well, but still a work in progress." Rand last performed with STONE SOUR on the ShipRocked cruise in mid-January before stepping away for what were at the time unspecified issues. STONE SOUR enlisted a temporary replacement for its Canadian tour, with singer Corey Taylor later saying that Rand would rejoin his bandmates on April 27 at the Welcome To Rockville festival in Jacksonville, Florida. STONE SOUR will support Ozzy Osbourne on the initial North American leg of the legendary vocalist's "No More Tours 2" tour, which kicks off August 30 in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
