Stone Sour Announce Johnny Chow as Touring Bassist

Stone Sour Announce Johnny Chow as Touring Bassist -

Stone Sour have officially announced Cavalera Conspiracy and Soulfly bassist, Johnny Chow as their touring bassist on the 'House of Gold & Bones Part 1 & 2' tour.

Guitarist Josh Rand broke the news in a recent interview with Metal Shrine, but now the band have made the move official telling fans the news via their Facebook fanpage.

In the recent interview, the Rand said of Chow (via LoudWire):

"He came in, a super cool guy and did all 24 songs in five days. It was insane! I don't think people realize how great of a player he is. It was just insane to watch him knock these songs out. With him coming in and doing that, it just added another level of energy to the whole project and he took a lot of the songs to a different level."

The vacancy was temporally filled by Skid Row's Rachel Bolan following the exit of founding bassist Shawn Economaki from the outfit. However, Bolan was recalled to his day job with Row paving the way for Chow to join.

In making the official announcement, Rand stated:

"Dear Friends,

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,

Josh Rand"
