February 17, 2011
STONE SOUR — the band featuring SLIPKNOT members Corey Taylor (vocals) and Jim Root (guitar) — performed the song "Hesitate" during last night's (Wednesday, February 16) episode of ABC-TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" (which actually aired the morning of Thursday, February 17). You can now watch video footage of their appearance below.
In other news, STONE SOUR will guest on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" with host Bob Coburn on Monday, March 21 at 8:30 p.m. PT / 11:30 p.m. ET. Fans are encouraged to speak with STONE SOUR and by calling 1-800-344-ROCK (7625).
STONE SOUR's video for "Hesitate" was filmed on September 20, 2010 in Los Angeles with director Paul Brown (JACK WHITE/ALICIA KEYS, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, JOHN MAYER) and directing collective Beta Movement/Skulley FX.
Taylor said that "Hesitate" is one of the standout tracks on the latest STONE SOUR album, "Audio Secrecy", for him. "It's a bittersweet song, " he said. "It's about letting go of something that you want with all your heart that you know is just gonna do nothing but damage to you. And it takes a special kind of heart and a special kind of courage to do that. And not a lot of people have that kind of courage.
"They would rather sit in a relationship for years and wallow in it because they're afraid of being alone. And this is about having the courage to say, 'You know what, I'm getting away. I'm gonna be on my own, and I'm gonna be OK.' And those first few steps are the worst, but once you get each foot in front of the other, it's a lot easier."
STONE SOUR, AVENGED SEVENFOLD and HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD are currently taking part in "The Nightmare After Christmas" tour.
