Stone Sour have been at work on what frontman Corey Taylor has said may become a double-disc concept album. Taylor recently gave a progress report on the project describing it as “Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’ meets Alice in Chains‘ ‘Dirt’ on steroids.” Okay, were listening.

The outspoken frontman may have bitten off more than he can chew by placing his band’s new album amongst two of the greatest rock albums of all time, but given the fact that Corey is not a B.S.-er — we’re inclined to believe he means business. Taylor recently sat down with Artisan News to speak about Stone Sour’s upcoming fourth (and technically fifth) album:

“We’re still writing and recording stuff. Right now alone, we have 13 completed songs, with six more that I can demo, probably two or three that Josh [Rand, guitar] still has that we’re tweaking, and then a bunch that Jim’s [Root, guitar] gonna bring in. Our ultimate goal is a double concept album, which the only way I can describe it is [Pink Floyd’s] ‘The Wall’ meets [Alice in Chains’] ‘Dirt’ on steroids. And I think it’s gonna be fantastic. And if I can pull it off, it’s gonna be the biggest thing we’ve ever done in our career.”

The album has been projected for a 2012 release but with such grandiose ambitions, it may take a bit longer for the project to materialize. The band is set to re-enter the studio with producer David Botrill (Tool, Muse) during a break between Slipknot’s February Soundwave Festival engagements and their North American summer tour beginning in June.
